A 9-year-old Kansas boy faces months of reconstructive surgeries after he was attacked by a pit bull, the boy's family says. 

They say the attack happened on December 5 in their Garden City neighborhood. After the attack, the boy, Chance, was flown to a hospital in Aurora, Colorado.

A GoFundMe page says Chance lost his left ear and part of his scalp and that his vision may be affected as well. 

The following update was posted to the page last Thursday:

Chance has had a rough week and at time of this update he is currently in surgery.
One bright spot this week Chance spoke to his mother through trachea his tube“hi mommy I love you” the sweetest sound in the world for Jennifer.
Please continue to share Chances go fund me page and keep prayers going for him.
There is an area below where you can print a poster and put it up in your office to spread Chances and his families situation. 
This is going to be long road and require lots of financial help for Chance and his family.
