In a heartbreaking loss, Edu Val a young Nigerian who had been battling stage 4 cancer for over a year, passed away this early morning in Lagos at the Holy Family Hospital.

Edu was in a lot of pain and begged God to take away his life. A testimony to his pain were his twitter posts in the last week of his life. Lamenting over his crying mother seeing him in this condition and tormented by the pains he was going through, he considered suicide

Edu needed a blood transfusion and it seemed no doctor was ready to risk helping him thoughsome  good Samaritans for the past few days, had been donating blood to him.

May his soul rest in peace.

See his posts on Twitter prior to his death.
