Children Cancer Journey: Yusuf
Yusuf’s Cancer Journey
Yusuf was a 10 year old boy who was diagnosed of neuroendocrine cancer in January, 2018. In March 2017, his mom noticed that Yusuf was not eating well and kept holding his stomach in pain. His Parents decided to take him to a hospital where he was treated for typhoid fever.
This went on for a few months before his parents noticed his stomach was looking swollen. Yusuf’s #cancerjourney then began in January 2018 when the diagnosis was finally made after almost one year of repeated illness, tests, hospitals visits and treatments for different conditions. By the time the diagnosis was made Yusuf’s cancer was advanced.
Yusuf received his angel wings at about 9:30am on the 3rd of January 2019 after a 2 year battle with his illness. We are deeply sad to have lost another bright light, but TDCF is grateful to have been there for Yusuf up until the very end.
