Mother shares photo of son fighting cancer

A mother shared a heartbreaking photo of her 10-year-old son fighting cancer. She posted the photo to Stinky Joe's #1 Pit Crew's Facebook page with the caption:

Today is International Cancer Day.... well every day is cancer day for us.

It is about to get real, real hard and real quick. The picture Im  posting is from this morning, and before you scream and cry "why would  she post a picture of him in a pull up, the indecency", well 1. It  doesnt show more than swimming jammers would and 2. Because life is not  always fucking politically correct and pretty, it  is real. So leave the page, dont read the post, whatever... I need an  outlease, life isnt pretty, and cancer fucking destroys a person.

This was this morning after carrying Drake to the bathroom. Yes, he is  in a pull up because 75% of the time he cant control his bathroom  habits. This is skin and bones, because I have to beg him to eat ONE  green bean for supper, or drink a cup of water through out the day. This  is having your son sleep with you at night because he is afraid of  something happening and being alone, and by something I mean dying. This  is having middle of the night conversations with a ten year old, asking  if he dies will he go to heaven and will he see his dad there and be  able to talk and play with him. This is him being too weak to get out of  bed or walk and needing to be carried or in a wheelchair. This is him  falling asleep as someone is talking to him, because he is too  exhausted. This is him, throwing up every medication I give him and him  dry heaving because his stomach is empty except for the spoonful of  yogurt I just gave him with his pills. This is having to take 44 chemo  pills last week in a matter of 24 hours. This is him telling me, "mommy,  Im not going to make it."  This is him not wanting to be touched,  because it hurts too much, and using morphine to get through his day.  This is him telling me he is scared and thinks he wont see his 11th  birthday. This is him and me, telling him that I will continue to fight  for him when he cant. This is him and me, and our world.

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.
