The long nightmare is over.
On Friday, Ryan Murphy spoke at Variety's Power of Women Luncheon in Los Angeles at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. The American Horror Story and Pose creator praised Chairman of Disney Television Studios and ABC Entertainment Dana Walden's role in his life and career. However, Ryan also opened up about his son Ford being diagnosed with neuroblastoma.
"My baby had a tumor the size of a tennis ball at 18 months growing behind his abdominal wall and the doctor said this was bad," Murphy told the event attendees. "The first person I called was Dana, who is the godmother to both Ford and our older son, Logan. And Dana instantly charged into action as she does. In a day, thanks to her knowledge and acumen and understanding, we were at Children's Hospital. So she organized the whole thing as I was getting sick in a bathroom."
