3-year-old friends overcame cancer and met again after a while
They quickly became friends when they were battling cancer. After some time they enjoyed a sweet reunion, as both are now in their recovery phase.
The reason for Paison and Mack, both 3 years old, who were treated at the Phoenix Children’s Hospital in Arizona earlier this year battling different forms of cancer.
Now, however, both were isolated due to the pandemic. Until they met again.
After returning home in the early summer, they spent a few weeks in their hometowns, which are 30 minutes away, until their parents finally organized their reunion, the first outside the hospital walls.
A few weeks after their third birthday, in September 2020, Paison was diagnosed with lymphoblastic leukemia, while in January 2021, Mack was diagnosed with regenerative large cell lymphoma, in the third stage.
Both children were treated at Phoenix Children’s Hospital, but the pandemic made it very difficult for them to stay in the hospital, as visitors were limited and the playroom was closed.
“Paison was isolated. It was difficult to see people because of the coronavirus. He asked for new toys every five minutes. “And then came Mac,” said the girl’s mother.
“I knew he would love her very much,” said the little boy’s mother, who remembers how her baby boy approached little Paison and told her to take a short walk together.
Soon, they started playing all the time together, while the photos from inside the hospital show the two children in beautiful, colorful clothes dancing, dancing, learning things from each other and sharing their love for Peppa the Piglet. and the Turtles.
Fortunately, both children are recovering and were allowed to return home a few months ago. But these days, when they were apart, they missed each other a lot.
“Every day his first question was: When can I play with Paison?” Says Mack’s mom.
Thus, the two families planned the great reunion. And finally they did it. The video taken by the parents captures the moment they meet again and Mack gives Paison a bouquet of flowers. A warm hug follows and later they dance inside the house.
Their parents said with emotion that this day will be unforgettable for them.
The children are still hanging out and even plan to start pre-school next fall.
