My mother is the most beautiful woman in the world and I want to be with her together forever,” said the boy, who was first diagnosed with acute lymphatic leukemia (ALL) two years ago.

Unfortunately, BaoBao’s condition appears to have worsened since April.
Acute lymphatic leukemia is a type of blood cancer that specifically affects the white blood cells in the bone marrow. It can then invade the bloodstream and spread to the patient’s organs, including the liver, spleen or lymph nodes.
ALL is an acute form of leukemia, which means it progresses more quickly than other types of cancer, according to WebMD. The condition could also be fatal, leading to death in just a few months if left untreated.
We really hope to attend his wedding 20 years later,” Baobao’s father said.
