Sad movie about a man who is considering suicide and befriends a kid?

Quite a few years ago, I was watching this movie (or maybe it was a miniseries, i don't know), I think it started off with this man getting out of bed and going to his dresser to pull out a gun. He puts it to his head, but he doesn't pull the trigger. He does this every morning. There's also this kid (I honestly forgot if the kid was a boy or girl), and I think the kid's mom was there too. I think the kid might have also had a treehouse or something. Anyway, one day the kid dies (cancer?), and then at the end when the man puts the gun to his head he finally pulls the trigger. To be honest, that's all I know. I can't even recall if the movie was in English or not. All I know is I was flipping through channels one day, about five years ago and it looked interesting (it might have been on Lifetime?). I remember it was really really really sad and I cried at the end.
