Unfortunately, a significant portion of us will be confronted with the challenge of coping with cancer at some time in our lives.
Even though it’s possible that the terrible disease won’t strike us, there’s a good chance that it will hit someone we care deeply about, or at the very least, someone who is relatively close to us.
We have covered various cancer-related tales here at Kinddose, including some tragic ones, some inspirational ones, and some successful ones. However, the story of Beckett, who was only two years old at the time, was the one that affected us the most.
You might recall the young boy shown in the disturbing photo that was previously displayed.
In 2019, Beckett’s mother, Kaitlin Burge, shared an image of her son, Beckett, who was two years old and was comforted by his older sister while undergoing chemotherapy treatment. The photo was posted on one of her social media accounts.
Reports indicate that Beckett was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia on April 25, 2018, and that he immediately began treatment for the condition.
Aubrey, who was only four years old then, was forced to watch as her younger brother, who was having difficulty even walking, let alone playing, with other children.
Bright Side reports that Kaitlin shared how Beckett was hospitalized for cancer treatment for thirty-five days, during which Aubrey could not visit him. She was aware that he was very ill and that the doctors were assisting him, but the entirety of the situation was difficult for her to comprehend.
Thankfully, Beckett’s treatment was successful, and the young boy can now consider himself cancer-free.
“I witnessed my one and only son go through a lot while maintaining a smile. “I watched as my dear Aubrey battled through a challenging period in her life and emerged as a strong, independent young woman,” Kaitlin explained.
“She saw her closest friend and brother in a position that no brother or sister should ever have to go through,”
Beckett overcame his cancer after two years of doggedly struggling and fighting against it, and he is now back in school.
According to what Kaitlin stated, “He is doing wonderful, he is through with therapy, and he is back to school, and he is presently in the first grade.”
Beckett, who is now six years old, and his amazing older sister have a friendship created by an unfathomable fight, and we are sure that she is happy that he has a clear bill of health!
The hard times don’t always endure.
The rest of us need to hear motivational tales like Beckett’s to put the challenges we face daily into proper perspective.
Even though it may be challenging to keep in mind, it is always helpful to remember that difficult times, like good times, are temporary – there is an end, even if you can’t see it, and most of the time, better things are waiting just around the corner. Even though it may be difficult to remember, it is always helpful to remember that difficult times, like good times, are temporary.
We are delighted that Beckett survived his bout with cancer and emerged healthy on the Other Side. We are grateful beyond words that he beat the disease. Cancer is a genuinely awful disease, and it would be best if we could eradicate cancer from the whole planet as quickly as possible.
We are sure that you agree that cancer has no business in our world, much less in situations involving innocent children.
