The young couple went viral after Chumkeaw posted their third anniversary picture, which was shared by a Facebook group called “True Buddhism.”
“Third anniversary, love the same,” she captioned.
Kaew suffers from retinoblastoma, a rare form of cancer that begins in the retina, the part of the eye responsible for light detection.
According to True Buddhism, Kaew’s family disclosed that his condition has no other treatment option.
However, the 21-year-old “still hopes for a miracle and that the tumor will disappear.”
According to the Daily Mail, the group’s moderator wrote:
“This post is not to give false hope to cancer patients. I admire the girl who is standing by her partner. Fans say the love that she gives to her boyfriend is the best thing she can offer. It may even cause miracles to happen.”
For now, the couple is holding on to their love for each other.
Netizens commented on their anniversary photo:
“Get well soon.”
“Don’t be discouraged.”
“This is true love.”
