“Hey guys for those who don’t know we found out that Fata has taken a bad turn. His sister passed this message on.

The Specialists have advised the family that he’s now at a point where it’s unlikely he will pull through.  Even to be assisted with his breathing.

They have spoken to the family and Fata, and by Fata’s choice, he has asked that they stop giving him medication. He is now only being given morphine to help him with comfort, but he has made the decision that he wants to rest now.  He’s tired.  He’s fought an amazing fight.  We don’t know how much time he has left.

A man we all love and cherish so much”
