A woman shared a photo of her son who is suffering from cancer, letting us see the real face of the disease, and it’s really disturbing to know that people, children included, have to deal with.

Jessica Medinger, shared the image of her 10-year-old son, Drake, looking emaciated, to create awareness about what cancer does to a person.

In the heartbreaking post which was shared on the Facebook group ‘Love What Matters’, Jessica reveals how her son is too exhausted to move on his own and also how he believes he may not make it to his eleventh birthday.

Even more heart-rending is the revelation that, for fear of dying alone, the boy has now taken to sleeping with his mother in her room.

This is the second time Drake, aka Stinky Joe, is battling cancer. He was first diagnosed with leukaemia in 2012 and got better. Sadly, he went into remission last March and six months down the line he was diagnosed with testicular cancer.

Drake is too weak to eat on his own and goes whole days without eating and might be placed on a feeding tube to help him feed. He also has to use diapers because he can’t control his bowel. His treatment consists of taking 44 Chemo pills within a space of 24 hours, drugs which he ends up vomiting because he can’t keep anything down. This is so sad. Read his mother’s post and see more photos of the child below.

    You could have given up, but you chose to fight. You chose to beat all the odds. You chose to believe that hope is stronger than reality. You chose to overlook the suffering. You chose to see the light at the end of life’s darkest tunnel. You made all the right choices, you are inspirational.

    Smh, this is just sad. && We have the nerves to complain about simple stuff whenever it’s people out there like this young man battling real situations. Stop the complaining and just be thankful. I wish there was something that could cure cancer and take all this young man pain away.

    The most heartbreaking thing in the world is to witness a CHILD suffer from cancer instead of living the simple life of playing at the park and such. My heart pours for this mother’s strength for her son and for him to find the strength inside himself to fight this horrible terminal battle God bless…
