A Texas mother has shared a heart-rending photograph of her 11-year-old son’s battle with leukemia in an effort to show the struggles both of them face every day.
In a post shared on Facebook group Love What Matters, Jessica Medinger revealed how she has to beg her son, Drake – nicknamed ‘Stinky Joe’ – to eat ‘ONE green bean for supper’ and how he sleeps with her because he’s scared to die alone in the night.
‘This is him, Drake, Stinky Joe, my whole world.
‘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.’
