Heartbreaking Moment As 15-Year-Old Dying Cancer Boy Consoles His Younger Brother

So much love and pain in a single picture.

Prepare your tissue and heart because this one single post has managed to turn us into a sobbing mess. A teenage boy who was supposed to be expecting the best of his life just ahead had to console his family and younger siblings.

Ian is a terminal cancer patient and is consoling his younger brother Peter because he’d just learned that he was going to die. Ian is only 15 years old.

Ian survived bone cancer and was declared cancer-free in 2019 after months of fighting the disease with surgeries and chemotherapies. The family celebrated – but not for long.

In two years, he would be going back to the hospital to get a check-up and learn the devastating news that it had returned. But what really crushed the family was how cancer had spread throughout his body. The family was told “that there is nothing else they could do.”

This picture was shared by Benjamin Elliott and reached over 2.9k reactions.

Thousands sent their prayers and praised the boy’s vast heart. Others felt sorry for the situation that befell the young boy.
