But the reason Steven was crying, wasn't because of something most 9-year-olds endure. Steven was crying tears of joy after he took his final dose of chemotherapy medication. The video shows a table full of many, many pill bottles and the boy sitting at the end. After he takes his last meds, he immediately starts crying. His mom wrote as the caption on the video, "PRAISE GOD!!! Little mans VERY LAST CHEMO!!! BIG TEARS OF JOY"
Cotter has shared a few other Facebook posts, one saying how proud she is of her son, and another with photos of Steven next to all of his medication. The photo of Steven next to his medication shared that he had been been going through all of this for the past 3 years. Cotter finished the post with, "My baby kicked cancer[‘s] a** with a smile on his face and his head held high.” According to ABC News, Steven was diagnosed with high-risk Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia when he was six-years-old and had his first treatment on August 29, 2016.
