PETALING JAYA: Fatin Nursyahirah Yusuf, 24, died less than 24 hours after her marriage. The Universiti Malaya student was suffering from stage four sarcoma cancer.
Shukur Yusuf, 30, documented his sister's battle with the disease and her recent marriage on Facebook.
"My younger sister, who my family affectionately refers to as kakak (big sister), was diagnosed with stage 3 Sarcoma cancer in 2017 and had undergone various radiotherapy sessions and two surgeries since last year," said Shukur.
She was told that that the cancer reached stage four sarcoma last Ramadan.
Fatin was engaged to Azzam in June last year. They married last Friday after agreeing to expedite their marriage which was set on Aug 18.
Shukur said his family was deeply moved by Azzam and his family for accepting Fatin as their own despite her condition.
"The wedding was extremely simple with no colours or excessive festivity as it was only attended by family members, witnesses, and the kadi," added Shukur.
Fatin was rushed to the Jitra Hospital later that evening after complaints of shortness of breath. She took her last breath at 5.20am last Saturday.
