Lost weight

“My sister has been sick for a while now I think we are talking about 4-5months. It’s been hell, it’s been crazy because of the emotion, there’s something it does to you. She started to have problems with her menses, shed cramp for 2-3 weeks and rapidly lost weight. She started turning white. Her fingernails, her eyes, her lips, her tongue, that’s when we knew something was wrong and rushed her to the hospital and they did a biopsy test and found out she had cancer," Cyco stated.

Upon returning home from the hospital, Joy asked her brother if she had cancer, Ben says he tried mumbling his way around but eventually said yes.

Currently, Joy is in India undergoing treatment.
