Little boy whose photo went viral while he battled cancer gets all clear and is back in school

Cancer is a daunting reality that many of us may face or witness in our lives. It’s a disease that doesn’t discriminate and can impact not just individuals but entire families.

You might recall the poignant image shared by Beckett’s mother, Kaitlin Burge, on social media in 2019. The photo depicted Beckett, then two years old, being comforted by his older sister during his chemotherapy treatment.

Beckett’s journey began when he was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in April 2018. He started treatment immediately, and his brave struggle was evident to everyone around him. His elder sister, Aubrey, witnessed firsthand the challenges Beckett faced – from struggling to walk to enduring lengthy hospital stays.

During Beckett’s 35-day hospitalization for cancer treatment, Aubrey couldn’t visit him. She knew her brother was very sick, and the complexity of the situation was difficult for her young mind to comprehend.

Thankfully, Beckett responded well to treatment, and today he is cancer-free. Kaitlin shared, “I witnessed my son’s incredible resilience and saw Aubrey grow into a strong and independent young girl, supporting her brother through his toughest times.”

After two years of courageously fighting cancer, Beckett is now enjoying school as a first grader. The bond between Beckett and his sister is strengthened by their shared journey through unimaginable challenges, and their story is a testament to the power of hope and resilience.

“She saw her best friend/brother in a state no sibling should ever have to experience.”
