Sharing several pictures of three-year-old Taeyang in the hospital, Deavan announced he was diagnosed with b-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia last week.

"I have vowed to always be 100% transparent with you guys and I am choosing to share the most vulnerable and saddest point of my life right now in hopes it can help give anyone else dealing with a similar situation some strength. I'm overcome with so much emotion and devastation to announce that my beloved son Taeyang who just celebrated his third birthday last week was just diagnosed with childhood cancer, b-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia just a few days ago," she wrote.

"He has already undergone multiple procedures and started chemotherapy treatment just two days ago," Deavan continued. "This is every parents absolute worst nightmare and I'm trying hard to stay strong for Taeyang, Drascilla and my baby in my tummy. Taeyang will need around the clock hospital care and this will be a long two year process that has a high success rate of full recovery in five years. I'm still processing all of this and asking for prayers, please."

She also revealed that her mother has set up a GoFundMe for Taeyang's ongoing medical treatment.

According to Deavan's publicist, the 90 Day Fiancé star has been unable to tell Jihoon about their child's diagnosis. He has reportedly blocked Deavan on social media and her phone number following their messy divorce, making it impossible for her to reach him.

She even tried to get a hold of Jihoon's father but was unsuccessful.
