It’s heartbreaking to see pictures or read stories of children battling cancer. At a young age, they’re already exposed to all kinds of pain. Many of them spend most of their time in hospitals instead of at home with their family or in school with classmates and friends. Sadly, these kids are rarely ever given the chance to live a normal life like other children their age.
Drake Medinger, a 10-year-old boy from Tomball, Texas, is battling cancer and the ill effects of chemotherapy. His mom, Jessica, shared his photos on Facebook along with the daily struggles that Drake goes through. The photos and the message have gone viral.
This is 10-year-old Drake Medinger.
He was once a healthy young boy, but he was diagnosed with cancer.
Recently, his mom shared this photo on Facebook.
Along with the picture was this very touching post.
Jessica referred to Drake as her life.
Many people responded to her post and extended their prayers, and some shared their own stories.
For someone who hasn’t experienced it first hand, one can only imagine how difficult it must be for a mother to see her child suffering from cancer. Jessica shared an important message to everybody, and we all need to remember when we’re having a rough day, that it’s nothing compared to what some people are going through.
