An unfair life
Life is not fair for everyone and it is a sad lesson that Vinny Desautels learned after doing something that takes so much courage that even adults wouldn’t do and he is just a kid. He actually grew his hair for two whole years and he let them be as long as 13 inches and then he had them cut and donated to the cancer patients. What a brilliant gesture indeed!
Despite doing such a big thing, some people made fun of him and said that he looked like a girl. What he did was an amazingly affectionate thing to do for cancer patients. However, this is not the only suffering he bore but the real tragic news is that he himself has been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in April, 2016. What happened was that one day he came home and started complaining about a knee pain he had and upon examination, doctors found a tumor on his iliac bone.
It only took another week for him to have another trip to the doctor because of a swelling eye. Everyone was expecting it to be some sort of allergy but it wasn’t just allergy but an aggressive form of cancer. The worst had already happened and doctors are still trying to determine the type of cancer Vinny has. Worst of all is that Vinny is now struggling to have his medical bills paid and his parents are planning another child.
Sue and Ron Desautels are his grandparents who started a GoFundMe account
for him and the goal of $500,000 was nearly achieved at $460,000 and the page is no longer receiving donations. The grandparents put some other links on GoFundMe and motivated people to donate to other children suffering with this.
