Father Shares Absolutely Heart-Wrenching Photo of His Daughter to Spread Child Cancer Awareness
Thirteen months ago, four-year-old Jessica Whelan was diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma, a type of cancer that is often found in the adrenal glands above the kidneys and commonly occurs among children under the age of five. Since her diagnosis, the little girl has been battling the disease with the help of her parents, Andy Whelan and Nicki Prendergast, in the village of Oswaldtwistle, England, and for a while it seemed like she was improving.
But on October 5, doctors told them that there were "little to no treatment options remaining," and that their best option was to stop treatment and to make the most of the few weeks that she had left to live. Their most recent prognosis predicts that she will not make it to Christmas.
Since then, the tumors in her body have been growing and causing her unbearable pain. On Saturday, Whelan took this heart-wrenching photograph of her in searing pain and posted it on the Facebook page .
"This is the true face of cancer, my baby girls blood vessels protruding from beneath her skin, a solitary tear running down her cheek, her body stiffened and her face contorted in pain," he wrote in the caption.
Whelan hopes that the photo will spread awareness for childhood cancer and help fund research to find a cure.
"Perhaps by seeing this photo people not in our position will be made aware of the darkness that is childhood cancer, perhaps these same people may be able to do something about it so that in the future no child has to suffer this pain, so that no parent has to bear witness to their own flesh and blood deteriorating daily, " he wrote.
