Current hospital flower status: one side of the room edition. Most of these are from Jun.
This is Jin Fang on Ji-min's instagram, as he's in no state to be on the internet right now, but he wanted me to post an update so no one is 'left in the dark'.
As soon as he was taken to the hospital, tests were run, and the initial results have come back. For any of you that don't know, Ji-min was diagnosed with ALL leukemia when he was eleven years old, and went into remission when he was fourteen. The diagnosis isn't 100% at this point, as the blood tests aren't perfect, but all signs are pointing to his leukemia being back.
I won't sugar coat this, he's not in a good state, even if his spirits are currently high and he's hopeful. And if this is a return of leukemia, since he's had treatment before, the doctors are going to have to find a regiment that works - he can't go on the same dosage of chemotherapy that he was on before, because it won't work to kill the cancer cells. Which means that the treatment will be a lot harsher on him than it was before.
Jun and Ji-min are both important to me, and I want to take this opportunity to express the hope that all fans of them and their group will use this opportunity to find ways to show your support. They're going to need all the good vibes and(for those of you that are religious) prayers that they can get.
Ji-min is likely to take matters into his own hands when a clearer diagnosis is in, so he'll probably be shaving his head before any possible treatments can take his hair. What he needs right now is more subtle support - so if anyone was thinking about shaving your head in solidarity, don't. Find ways to volunteer your time to health care facilities or donate funds(in lieu of flowers or other gifts) to cancer research centers.
And continue to support Moon.Light's endeavors. All of this has stopped their comeback in its tracks, and whether they want to admit it or not, that's very upsetting.
Updates will be posted here on his instagram as time allows, so keep checking back to hear it directly from the source. Ji-min himself is likely to be writing the next post, provided that he feels up to it.
