Taeyang Emergency Hospitalization Update: What Happened?
Back in May, 3-year-old Taeyang was diagnosed with b-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. This was soon after he celebrated his birthday. Given that he is undergoing chemotherapy, his natural bodily defenses are down which makes him vulnerable to common diseases like Flu. Given that it is flu season, Taeyang needed an immediate blood transfusion after recording a high body temperature.
This was a shocker for the reality star as he had received a blood transfusion just days before on her birthday. Worried fans flocked to the comment section, hoping for Taeyang to be back home soon. One wrote, “My nephew was diagnosed with leukemia last week and it’s terrifying. I will keep your son in prayer.”
Another urged fans to help the family as much as they can by donating through their Gofundme campaign. They wrote, “Please please stop thinking these TV peeps are rich! THIS FAMILY NEEDS HELP! Go to the gofundme and assist! Anyway, you can!!! This baby didn’t ask for this life. What can YOU do today to make life better for someone else!!??”
Grandma Elicia Clegg Updates Fans On Taeyang’s Health
Updating fans on Taeyang’s health, his grandma Elicia took to Instagram and wrote, “Our prayers are answered. Taeyang’s temperature dropped, the 2nd blood transfusion seems to be working..and he has been allowed to come home. Thank you all so much!!”
During the emergency visit to the hospital, Elicia was by her daughter and Taeyang’s side through it all. She even started the Gofundme campaign to raise money for his treatment which is supposed to last two years.
Why Does Deavan Clegg Need Monetary Help?
Several fans have wondered why Deavan has been asking for monetary help even after starring in a reality show that is known to pay well. However, the reality star explained that the fundraising is due to the fact that she spent a big chunk of the money during the custody battle with her ex-husband Jihoon Lee. Although Deavan was awarded full custody of Taeyang, she is now low on funds.
As her son continues to fight cancer, he needs regular blood transfusions and chemo. This is why she needs enough help to ensure her son has everything to stay healthy. As of November 22, Deavan has raised $34,493 of the $50,000 required.
In terms of whether or not his father is involved, Deavan confirmed that Jihoon is aware of what’s going on but hasn’t tried to reconnect with his child.
What do you think of Jihoon’s lack of attempt to connect with his son when he needs his father the most? Share your thoughts in the comments!
