Our hearts go out for this son and we can’t help feeling proud about him.

While the little boy manages to keep himself ready for the enormous fight and struggle he has ahead of him, he managed to draw the best out of everyone who read his story. The boy is a true inspiration and is a great example of how a great son every boy deserves of becoming. More power to you, boy!
