According to TMZ, Haynes posted: “On September 1st, we were among the 720 sets of parents to be absolutely devastated with a childhood cancer diagnosis. September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Please take the time to pray for these children, our sweet baby included. We appreciate each and every one of you.”
