90 Day Fiancé star Deavan Clegg is scared for her and Jihoon Lee’s 3-year-old son Taeyang, whose chemotherapy is giving him scary side effects.
Former 90 Day Fiancé star Deavan Clegg’s son Taeyang is not responding well to his cancer treatment and is in the hospital while fans continue to send prayers and positive thoughts for the 3-year-old boy. Utah native Deavan started her reality TV career with 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way season 1, during which she was pregnant with Taeyang, her second child. She was already a mom to daughter Drascilla from a previous relationship when she met South Korean man Jihoon on a dating app. Deavan and Jihoon are now divorced, and she won custody of their son, who was diagnosed with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia in May. Deavan recently gave birth to her third child, this time with her current boyfriend Chris, Topher Park. Topher has stepped in as a father to Drascilla and Taeyang after Jihoon cut contact with his ex-wife and kids.
Topher has been by Deavan’s side through Taeyang’s treatment, but the boy’s body is not reacting well to his chemotherapy; as a result, he is on day 6 of no food. According to 90 Day Fiancé cast member Deavan, Taeyang will stay in the hospital for a couple more days and hopefully get better by Christmastime after a feeding tube provides him with the necessary nutrients. “Definitely a huge scare,” Deavan added while recounting how Taeyang received a “weird rash” on his body and started getting nose bleeds that would last for two to three hours, two days after he received chemotherapy.
90 Day Fiancé’s Deavan Reveals Taeyang ‘Doing Much Better’
Taeyang soon became weak and pale and was unable to speak. He hasn’t been able to speak since then and has been rendered mute “for a couple of days.” What really scared Deavan was how Taeyang’s top lip is “completely peeling off.” But 90 Day Fiancé star Deavan and her family are getting the necessary care for Taeyang as soon as possible. The medical experts are working on healing Taeyang’s skin of the rash and are slowly nursing him back to health. “Hopefully we won’t be here for long,” wrote Deavan, who’s otherwise prepared to spend Christmas at the hospital for the child. A few hours later, Deavan informed her well-wishers that Taeyang is “doing much better” and his feeding tube was finally placed, after which he fell asleep.
Although Deavan was under much scrutiny during her time on 90 Day Fiancé for the way her relationship with Jihoon was presented, fans are sending her support during this unfortunate time for her and Taeyang. Deavan had just found out she was pregnant when they also got news of Taeyang’s cancer diagnosis. It’s commendable how she managed to take care of her son while carrying a baby during a pregnancy which she said was difficult. Deavan has the support of her mom Elicia, who has been giving fans regular updates about Taeyang’s health.
The family launched a GoFundMe to help Taeyang beat his childhood leukemia. Their goal is to raise $50,000, and they have raised over $36,000 since May. 90 Day Fiancé fans have known Taeyang since he was born as his birth was documented in an episode of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way. Deavan had an emergency C-section at 36 weeks because Taeyang arrived two weeks early and popped two holes in his lungs from screaming too loud.
