On March 1, 2005, Blake Wayland lost his courageous battle with
10 year old Blake Wayland from Doswell,
Virginia, (Formerly from Glen Allen and Henrico County, VA) who we thought
was a normally healthy kid, was playing Hockey in Ashland for the Vipers
for the Kanawha Redskins.
During 2004, he also played basketball for Glen Allen and in July, participated in the JMU Summer Basketball Camp.
He enjoys Trick Bike riding, Skate Boarding, Riding his Dirt Bike, shooting, hunting, fishing and most outside activities. He's also a pretty darn good golfer (Thanks to his mom and dad).
The week of August 23, 2004, Blake was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. He had no signs of the disease and got a fever for a few evenings, but was active and unaffected during the day.
Blake had not responded to treatment but he stayed strong to the end, thanks to loving
friends and family
