But Grayson isn't fighting this one alone, his parents created Grayson's Ladder, and Saturday the YCAP Boxing Club hosted the annual "Gloves Up for Grayson" event. It's a night full of amateur and pro boxing where all the money raised goes to help fight this rare disease.
"To just be another successful and fun night where we're fighting in a boxing ring, but Grayson has a different fight that he's fighting daily," Laura Ledbetter, Grayson's mom, said. "So, it's been a great night."
The amount of money raised Saturday night is still being calculated. Last year, the family raised $150,000.
