Barely a week after a Nigerian cancer patient, Edu Val, begged God to take his life, the sick man has passed on.
The cancer patient who was down with a stage 4 cancer for over a year, died in the early hours of Sunday morning in Lagos.
The Twitter Timeline of the Nigerian cancer patient who survived for some days before his death because well meaning Nigerians had been donating blood to him, at the Holy Family Hospital, Festac, where he was receiving treatment, gives an insight to the pain he was passing through.
Here are some of his tweets;
Twitter @Mz_Shadee who confirmed Edu’s death, tweeted;
Read a tweet from a guy who needed blood. I saved it, because he was in Festac, and I hoped to check on him later that day. I only got the chance to call the number he dropped this morning, hoping to visit him. Called after church and was told he died at 5a.m this morning.
Rest in peace wherever you are. Your mum is VERY VERY VERY HURT!
I left his house at 11. The mum was crying when I left. Since 5! That’s 6 straight hours of loud, heart wrenching cries.
A 24-year-old cancer survivor identified as Jessica Geneva Florence, few weeks ago also shared her story of winning the battle against cancer.
The young lady revealed that she was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 22 years old. Florence shared her story on the last day of her cancer treatment on her Instagram page.
According to her, when she was diagnosed she never believed that she could ever see herself as a woman again. Florence explained that she thought the cancer took away the only thing that made her feel like a woman.
The beautiful lady said the experience taught her to love again, to also love herself and who she would become.
