Heartbroken parents have taken their own lives after their only child tragically passed away after a tough battle with cancer.
The 46-year-old parents, who were married, were found lifeless next to the body of their 9-year-old son, Cristian Dimitris Arava.
The incident occurred in Constanta, Romania, where the loving couple couldn’t see a way out of the grief associated with the death of their only child.
According to Prosecutor Sadic Zafer, the father hanged himself in the kitchen, whereas his wife was found lying next to Cristian and covered in a blanket.
As investigators revealed, the couple left behind a 13-page letter in which they said their goodbyes to their friends and family members.
In the letter, the couple has spoken out about the death of their only child and how they couldn’t get themselves to deal with the loss.
The 9-year-old boy was dealing with an inoperable tumor for years and it was only a matter of time before the disease would take its toll.
“I felt like I was dying myself when I heard the diagnosis. I can’t express the pain that two parents feel when finding such terrible news about their child. He was only two years old,” Cristian’s mother wrote in a blog post several years ago.
“Our only hope that Cristian is a lucky child and the tumor will stop growing is now shattered. The thought that every moment could be fatal, it drives me crazy.”
Unfortunately, the tumor continued to grow until it took the boy’s life and the lives of his parents.
