A 17-year-old girl in the US has 3 times won the dangerous cancer, but then died from COVID-19 infection.
Aspen Deke (17 years old) living in Kansas City, Missouri (USA) was diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoblastic leukemia at 4 years old. At this point, Deke’s health is prognosis very bad and difficult to overcome. However, Deke has steadfastly fought the disease. She underwent 4 years of chemotherapy and bone marrow transplantation. Overall, she underwent 3 relapses and medical treatment. In the end, the girl overcame this monstrous disease.
However, in November 2020, Deke was diagnosed with COVID-19 and admitted to hospital almost 2 weeks before Christmas holidays.
Her parents said, COVID-19 was worse and more frightening than the previous cancer. For cancer at least, we already know a lot about the disease, while COVID-19 is the exact opposite.
Even on New Year’s Eve 1/1/2021, Deke was hospitalized in the Special Care Division for Children and used a breathing machine placed in the trachea to aid in breathing.
To date, there have been more than 100 million cases of COVID-19 infection and more than 2 million deaths from the virus.
