Sending a powerful message across, mother of a 10-year-old put up a photo of his son on social media who is suffering from Cancer in order to show the struggle that he goes through on a daily basis.
The photo that Jessica Medinger posted of his son Drake on social media is now going viral, she told that the reason for putting out the picture is to show how things get really hard for someone who is battling with cancer, moreover if a patient is a child.
“Life is not always politically correct and pretty, it is real. Life isn’t pretty, and cancer destroys a person.”, says Jessica’s post. As Jessica writes it, she also puts up a photo of his son in a pull up because 75% of the time he can’t control his bathroom habits.
The post also tells about the mid-night conversation with her son, when he asks if he will go to heaven and will be able to meet his dad, if he dies.
“This is him being too weak to get out of bed or walk and needing to be carried or in a wheelchair. This is him falling asleep as someone is talking to him, because he is too exhausted. This is him, throwing up every medication I give him and him dry heaving because his stomach is empty except for the spoonful of yogurt I just gave him with his pills. This is having to take 44 chemo pills last week in a matter of 24 hours.”, reads her post.
In a heart melting post she tells that her son is scared of cancer and at time thinks that he won’t be able to make it to his 11th birtdayh, to which Jessica replies that she will continue to fight for him on the days when he thinks he can not.
In the post she mentions, “From the moment I found out I was pregnant till future forever, he has been my reason for life. He is my smile, my love, my heartbeat. He is also my tears, my heart ache, my frowns. He is my life.”
