A young man has passed away from brain cancer just months after he was diagnosed with the disease following a 2-day headache streak.
25-year-old Ashan Corrick was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer back in August and left behind his heartbroken twin brother as he passed away on December 17, just a week before Christmas.
According to the family, Ashan’s tumor was discovered after he began experiencing a severe headache that wouldn’t go away for two days.
Following a visit to the hospital, the doctors diagnosed the young man with stage 4 brain cancer and gave him just months to live.
Sadly, the 25-year-old succumbed to his disease just days before Christmas.
“Tonight was the last night I said good night to my twin brother… the most painful day I will ever go through,” Aysa, Ashan’s twin brother, said.
“He fought so hard for the past week but unfortunately he lost his battle with cancer. He left peaceful and in our mother’s arms.
“Thank you everyone for their kind words and constant support through this. Believe it or not, it has made it so much easier for everyone in our family so thank you so much.
“I love you all so much and I know this will upset a lot but one thing Ashan got upset about when he had the news he received was how much this affected people and I promised him we’ll celebrate and remember the happiness he brought to our lives.”
As the proud brother added, he’s going to throw “one of the biggest parties Bristol has ever seen” to fulfill his promise to Ashan.
“I made you promises which have given me the strength and purpose which I needed. I love you more than you can possibly imagine brother and I’m so happy that you can’t feel this pain anymore,” Aysa added in his tribute.
According to the basketball club Ashan was playing for, the 25-year-old was a “hardworking and dedicated young man.”
He was buried on December 19 in a traditional Muslim funeral. Rest in peace.
