When Sheryl and Jon Blanksby welcomed their second son Thomas into their lives, they believed their prayers had been answered.

After Sheryl suffered a miscarriage, Thomas became their “Rainbow Baby” and his birth gave them hope to embrace their growing family.

But their hopes were soon dashed when at the tender age of just six-weeks-old, Thomas’ doctor discovered a lump in his tiny abdomen.

The Blanksbys fears were confirmed when the test results came back: Thomas had a rare, aggressive form of cancer located in his kidneys called a malignant rhabdoid tumor and his prognosis didn’t look good at all.

Specialists said Thomas had less than a 30 percent chance of surviving the terminal cancer.

Sheryl and Jon were devastated by the news and sought comfort in one another.

In an effort to make the most out of every day they had together, Sheryl, Jon, William and Thomas spent every moment they could together savoring life and living in the moment.

There have been some incredibly raw and painful moments of reality along the way; but there have also been some moments so beautiful and heartwarming that Sheryl had to share them with the world.

One moment in particular captured the hearts of people everywhere after she shared the photo on social media.

While at home, Sheryl noticed that it seems suspiciously quiet. As she went to see what sort of mischief she would find, instead she found William laying quietly next to Thomas, comforting him. “Kuya (big brother) is here. Everything is OK.”
