"I'm still processing all of this and asking for prayers, please," said Clegg.
Deavan Clegg's 3-year-old son's leukemia diagnosis has left her heartbroken and she is now asking her friends and family for their prayers and support.
On May 31, 2022, the 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way alum shared a lengthy Instagram post in which she revealed that her son Taeyang, whom she shares with ex Jihoon Lee, was recently diagnosed with b-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, which she says is "every parent's absolute worst nightmare."
"I have vowed to always be 100% transparent with you guys and I am choosing to share the most vulnerable and saddest point of my life right now in hopes it can help give anyone else dealing with a similar situation some strength. I'm overcome with so much emotion and devastation to announce that my beloved son Taeyang who just celebrated his third birthday last month was just diagnosed with childhood cancer, b-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia just a few days ago," she wrote.
"He has already undergone multiple procedures and started chemotherapy treatment just two days ago. This is every parent's absolute worst nightmare and I'm trying hard to stay strong for Taeyang, Drascilla, and my baby in my tummy," she shared.
"Taeyang will need around-the-clock hospital care and this will be a long two-year process that has a high success rate of full recovery in five years. I'm still processing all of this and asking for prayers, please. 🙏🏼 If anyone would like to donate to assist with his medical care, I would be forever grateful as this nightmare has been completely unexpected."
"The link to donate is in my bio. ❤️🙏🏼 I will also create some kind of support-fundraiser t-shirt this week too just still trying to wrap my head around all of this. Also if anyone knows of any childhood cancer support groups and resources please tag them below. I'm so beside myself right now and my heart is broken. Thank you friends and supporters for your prayers, healing vibes, and strength. 🙏🏼💔 #leukemia #childhoodcancer #prayersfortaeyang #westandwithtaeyang #teamtaeyang," she concluded her post.
Clegg celebrated Taeyang's third birthday last month, calling him her "beautiful boy" in a sweet tribute on Instagram, according to PEOPLE.
"Happy 3rd Birthday to my beautiful boy. We had an amazing day at the zoo with the family and finished it with some yummy cake 🎂 can't believe you are already 3 😁 Well tomorrow 😀 celebrating one day early," she wrote alongside a picture of Taeyang with his car-themed cake.
