Receiving the news that you have cancer is indescribably terrifying. Imagine witnessing a 9-year-old boy go through the pain of battling leukemia.
A Terrible Disease
Cancer is a disease that affects people of all ages and all walks of life. It is something that affects people whatever their race, religion, or age.
Steven Cotter Jr. is only 9-years-old but he has been battling his cancer for more than three years.
Steven has Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) which is a type of cancer of the blood and bone marrow wherein immature blood cells are produced instead of mature ones.
Steven was diagnosed with ALL in August of 2016 when he was just six years old. Finally, after three long years of medication and treatment, he got to take his last chemo pill.
A Special Moment
Steven’s mom, Ashley Cotter, recorded the little boy’s reaction when he was taking his last chemo pill. She posted it on Facebook saying, “This is just a touch of what he’s had to take over the past 3 yrs my baby kicked cancer (butt) with a smile on his face and his head held high I could not be more proud than I am right now!!!!! #peaceoutcancer.”
3 Years’ Worth Of Medications
Steven sat down beside the dozens of medications he had been taking which were the physical representations of his brave fight with cancer.
As he gazed out over the medicine bottles, Steven started crying tears of joy over the relief that he’s won against the terrifying disease.
Brave Little Guy
After boldly standing against cancer for more than three years, Steven has every right to cry after coming out victorious in the battle.
