Devon Clegg And Jihun Lee Welcoming their son Taiyang On April 11, 2019. At the time, Devon was living in South Korea with Jihun – her current husband.
Their story was shown on TLC 90 Day Engagement: Another Way. Last week, mom and dad finalized their controversial divorce, which lasted two years.
On Tuesday, Devon shared a heartbreaking Instagram post, revealing that Taiyang has been diagnosed with leukemia.
“I promise to always be 100% transparent with you and I am choosing to share the most risky and sad point of my life right now in the hope that it can help give someone else some strength to deal with a similar situation,” Devon wrote. “I am overwhelmed with emotion to announce that my beloved son Taiyang, who celebrated his third birthday last week, was diagnosed with childhood cancer, B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia just a few days ago.”
The mother then revealed, “She has already gone through multiple procedures and started chemotherapy treatment just two days ago. It’s the worst nightmare for every parent and I’m trying hard to stay strong for Taiyang, Dracila And my baby in my womb. Twenty-four hours of hospital care will be required in Taiyang and it is a long two year process with a high success rate of complete recovery in five years. I’m still in the process of doing this and asking for prayers, please. “
To help with Taiyang’s treatment, Devon’s mother created a GoFundMe account. “Tayang will need full-time care in both the hospital and when he is able to return home to his family,” Grandma wrote. “Because of her age and childhood leukemia, her mother has to be her full-time caregiver and not just her loving mother. Because of this, she will not be able to continue her work line. Every penny raised will go directly to Taiyang’s care.”
Devon, according to his preacher, was unable to reach Jihun about the diagnosis. Following their recent divorce, Jihun reportedly blocked Divan on social media and on the phone.
The TLC star suggested that Jihun had not been in contact with Taiyang for almost two years.
Devon is currently expecting another child with her boyfriend Toffer Park.
