8-yr-old Boy With Lukemia Who Wants Normal Life, Finds Love With 7-yr-old Girl | PHOTOS
An eight-year-old boy with leukemia has found love with a seven-year-old classmate after his parents decided to end his cancer treatment so he could enjoy some of his childhood. David Spisak, of Chesapeake, Virginia, was two years old when his first cancer diagnosis came, and since then he has been in and out of the hospital as his cancer has come back three more times.
His fourth diagnosis arrived in March, CBS affiliate WTKR reported. The boy’s parents ‘made the decision to stop treatments and let David live as normal and happy a life as he can with all of the experiences an eight-year-old should have,’ the television station wrote.
Those experiences now include a ‘first date’ with his class ‘crush’, a little girl called Ayla, who started sending cards to David after his last diagnosis meant more forced time away from school.
David’s mother Amber Spisak contacted Ayla’s mother Angela Andrews, to arrange for the pair to meet up at a bowling center.
“She pushed his wheelchair, helped him get the bowling balls, they stayed connected the entire time even with 15 family and friends around; they just wanted to be close. THEN, he forced himself out of the wheelchair and not only STOOD UP, he WALKED the rest of the day, BOWLED standing up and refused to get back in his chair…for her!
