Unfortunately, cancer is something that many of us may face at some point.
Even if the horrible disease doesn’t personally touch us, the chances are that someone we love will be at least someone close to us.
We’ve covered a wide range of cancer-related stories, from the tragic to the inspirational to the triumphant. The story of 2-year-old Beckett, on the other hand, was the one that moved us the most.
You may recall the young boy in the graphic image above.
Beckett’s mother, Kaitlin Burge, shared a photo on social media in 2019 of her two-year-old son, Beckett, being consoled by his older sister during chemotherapy treatment.
According to sources, Beckett was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia on April 25, 2018, and started treatment right away.
Aubrey, his four-year-old sister, had to stand by and watch while her baby brother struggled to walk, let alone play.
According to Kaitlin, Beckett spent 35 days in the hospital for cancer treatment, during which time Aubrey was unable to see him. She was aware that he was gravely ill and that physicians were assisting him, but it was too much for her to comprehend.
Beckett’s treatment was successful, and the young kid is now cancer-free.
“I smiled as I watched my only son go through so much. “I witnessed my lovely Aubrey overcome adversity and grow into a strong woman,” Kaitlin explained.
“She witnessed her best friend/brother in a position that no sibling should have to go through.”
Beckett has defeated his disease and is currently attending school after a two-year struggle and fight.
“He is feeling fantastic,” Kaitlin said. “He is done with treatment and is back in school, where he is currently in first grade.”
Beckett, now six years old, and his heroic older sister have developed a friendship created by a genuinely unbelievable battle, and we’re sure she’s overjoyed that he’s been given the all-clear!
Difficult situations don’t last forever.
Inspirational stories like Beckett’s can help the rest of us put our challenges into perspective.
Though it can be challenging to remember, it is always helpful to remember that bad times, like good ones, are only transitory. Even if you can’t see it, there is an end in sight, and better things are usually only around the corner.
We can’t explain how grateful we are that Beckett overcame his cancer and came out on the other side healthy. Cancer is a terrible disease, and the sooner we can rid the world of cancer, the better!
We’re sure you agree that cancer has no place in the world, much less when it comes to children.
