Celebrity Trainer Gunnar Peterson Reveals His 4-Year-Old Daughter Has Leukemia

Celebrity Fitness Trainer Gunnar Peterson Reveals 4-Year-Old Daughter's Leukemia Diagnosis

Gunnar Peterson has some heartbreaking news about his daughter, Monroe Vivian Peterson.

The celebrity fitness trainer of stars like Khloé Kardashian and Jessica Simpson took to Instagram on Wednesday to reveal the 4-year-old has been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia, a cancer of the blood and bone marrow. Oh no! As Gunnar explained, this all started when Monroe “had a nagging cough, on and off fever, and an odd pallor to her” for a couple of days last week. Then, his wife Jess Peterson noticed bruising on her legs — something she felt was “odd since she hadn’t been very active because of the other symptoms.”

Out of precaution, she took Monroe to the hospital. The next thing the family knew, four days later, her white blood cell, platelet, hemoglobin, and hematocrit counts dropped, resulting in the little one needing transfusions. On top of that, Monroe had required a bone marrow biopsy and spinal taps. The tests eventually confirmed she had AML. So, so awful. Gunnar continued:

“How the f*#! did we get here?!?! More to come as we navigate the nightmare… Our Warrior Princess will crush this! She has even said it herself! Please hold our daughter, and our family-immediate and extended-in your hearts, thoughts, and prayers. As we are all aware; ‘you never know what someone is going through.’ Back to levity and fitness fodder, more on this as it unfolds. Into the storm.”

While Monroe undergoes chemotherapy, Gunnar noted the family has applied for a Make-A-Wish gift for her. See the post (below):
