The Kardashians and Jenners have all been famously trained by celebrity fitness expert Gunnar Peterson for years. He appeared alongside Khloe Kardashian on her show Revenge Body where he helped her reach peak levels of physical fitness. Now, the Kardashians are sending their thoughts and prayers to the personal trainer after learning that his young daughter has been diagnosed with leukemia. After the news of her diagnosis broke earlier this week, they rushed to show Gunnar Peterson support. Continue reading to see how the Kardashians reacted to the news.

Celebrity Personal Trainer Shares Heartbreaking News

On Wednesday, March 27, Gunnar Peterson took to Instagram to share some devastating news about his daughter. Monroe, 4, was diagnosed with leukemia. Gunnar and his entire family were blindsided by the news.

The first photo in the series showed four-year-old Monroe’s foot with a hospital bracelet around her ankle. Other photos show her in the hospital bed with various members of their family showing her love.

Gunnar wrote in the caption, “This is going to be longer, and cathartically different from my usual fare. Forewarned is forewarned. Life changing turn.”

Then the celebrity person trainer went on the detail how they discovered the diagnosis. “Our perfect 4 year old daughter, Monroe Vivian Peterson (MVP, see that?!) had a nagging cough, on and off fever, and an odd pallor to her for a few days last week,” he wrote. “Typical kid stuff.”

However, he said that later on in the week his wife started noticing some bruising on Monroe’s legs. This was odd to them because she hadn’t been very active over the last several days, given her other symptoms. So, the family decided to take the young girl to the hospital. That is where their lives were changed forever.

“Fast forward 4 days,” Gunnar wrote. He then described all of the things that happened with his daughter medically, such as her platelet counts dropping, undergoing transfusions, chemotherapy, and even becoming a Make-A-Wish candidate. “How the f*#! did we get here?!?!” the exasperated father wrote.

“More to come as we navigate the nightmare… Our Warrior Princess will crush this!” he concluded, before asking his followers, friends, and family for their prayers.
