8-Year-Old With Terminal Cancer Finds True Love

David Spisak Jr., 8, has found a silver lining in his life since his fourth cancer diagnosis: Love.

Although David has beat leukemia three times before, the disease has come back and he will be "receiving two transplants and going through extensive chemotherapy treatment." This means one thing to a kid -- less play-time, more hospital.

After receiving this diagnosis, Spisak's mother, Amber, was ready to help her son feel like a normal kid: "We just decided it was time to give him a childhood."



For most kids, this would mean bottomless bowls of ice cream, endless recess and all the screen time you could ask for. But for David, this meant Ayla.

Although the Spisaks knew that David had a crush on a girl from class, they didn't realize how serious the two lovebirds really were about each other until they received multiple letters home from Ayla, 7, and word from David's former classmates that she missed him.

Then, David began calling Ayla his girlfriend.

"That's where we sort of put together that this was something more," said Amber.



After speaking with Ayla's mother, Amber then organized a real date for the children. David even called her to formally ask her out, not to mention that he met her at a bowling alley, teddy bear and flowers in tow.



At one point, David even got up from his wheelchair in order to bowl standing up.

"He was just so determined for her," said Amber. "He really pushed himself for her."

Although David has had a whole batch of bad luck, and we are all sending positive thoughts to him and his family during this trying time, he has found in eight years what many don't find in eighty: True, unconditional love.
