R&B singer Keke Wyatt recently opened up about one of the scariest moments of her life when her son Rahjah was diagnosed with cancer. The two sat down to discuss his diagnosis and treatment in a YouTube video.

In the video, Wyatt shared that she was concerned Rahjah had a “horrible problem” when the family was visiting Six Flags and her son “sat in one spot at the park and was like, ‘Mom, I literally can not move.”
Rahjah had to carried out of the park that day. “You couldn’t walk. You couldn’t do anything,” the mom of 10 shared in the video.
“Because I was dying!,” Rahjah responded. “I was literally dying and we didn’t know.”
As doctors were working to determine what was going on with Rahjah, he lost his appetite and quite a bit of weight.
“You dropped weight drastically,” Wyatt told her son, revealing that doctors then ran some blood tests.
The R&B Divas: Atlanta star learned that her son had leukemia after the blood tests showed some concerning results. The family’s doctor asked that Rahjah be brought to the hospital immediately.
When speaking with Rahjah’s doctor, she asked “What is it? Like cancer or something?,” though she never expected the answer to be yes. When the doctor confirmed that it was, indeed, cancer the singer said “my throat hit my butt and my butt hit the floor. I couldn’t believe it.”
Thankfully, after treatment, Rahjah is now cancer free. “NO MORE CANCER!!! GOD HEALED MY BABY!!!,” Wyatt wrote.
