Many of us will have to deal with cancer at some point in our lives, which is sad.Even if we don’t get the terrible disease ourselves, there’s a good chance that someone we love or close to us will.
Here at Newsner, we’ve written all kinds of stories about cancer, some sad, some inspiring, and some happy. The story of 2-year-old Beckett, on the other hand, was the one that touched us the most.
You might remember the scary picture of the little boy.
Beckett’s mother, Kaitlin Burge, shared a photo on social media in 2019 of her two-year-old son, Beckett, being comforted by his older sister during chemotherapy treatment.
Reports say that Beckett was told he had acute lymphoblastic leukemia on April 25, 2018, and that he started treatment immediately.
Aubrey, who was four years old at the time, had to see how hard it was for her little brother even to walk, let alone play.
Bright Side says that Kaitlin said Beckett was in the hospital for 35 days getting cancer treatment. During that time, Aubrey wasn’t able to see him. She knew he was very sick and that doctors were trying to help him, but it was a lot for her to take in.
Beckett’s treatment worked, and the boy was no longer sick with cancer.
“I saw my only son go through a lot and still have a smile. Kaitlin said, “I saw my sweet Aubrey get through a hard time in her life and become so independent.
“She saw her best friend/brother in a state that no brother or sister should ever have to go through.”
Beckett’s cancer is gone after two years of hard work and fighting, and he is now back in school.
Kaitlin said, “He’s feeling great, his treatment is over, and he’s back in school. He’s in the first grade now.”
Beckett, who is now six years old, and his older sister, who is an inspiration, are very close because of a battle that is hard to imagine. We’re sure she’s happy that he’s healthy again!
Troubles don’t last forever.
Stories like Beckett’s can help us put our problems in perspective.
Even though it can be hard to remember, bad times, like good times, are only temporary. Even if you can’t see the end, there is one, and most of the time, better things are just around the corner.
We can’t say enough about how happy we are that Beckett was able to beat cancer and come out the other Side healthy. Cancer is a very bad disease, and the sooner we can get rid of it for good, the better.
We know you agree with us that cancer has no place in this world, especially when it comes to innocent children.
