KUALA LUMPUR – “I’m tired, I just want to be happy,” was the last request of Nur Syamimi Liyana Firdaus Estrop, 7, to her father, Firdaus Estrop Abdullah, 32.
Nur Syamimi who was suffering from Wilson’s Disease passed away by the side of her father and her sister, Nurul Fatihah Diana, 9, at the Selayang Hospital around 3.30pm today.
Nur Syamimi was diagnosed with chronic liver disease or ‘Wilson’s Disease’ in April and she was often moody, not active and had an enlarged belly.
Her case caught the attention of Umno Youth Community Complaints Bureau and it helped finance the cost of her treatment.
Nur Syamimi’s request was fulfilled with her birthday celebrations at the Selayang Hospital on Nov 27.
“Syamimi also asked me to bring her sister to see her as the ward did not permit under aged children,” he told reporters at the Raudhatul Sakinah burial ground, Taman Batu Muda, here tonight.
Firdaus said, Nur Syamimi had received a letter prioritizing surgery, but the hospital was unable to carry it out because of her unstable situation and weak condition.
“I want to thank everyone who provided assistance directly or indirectly to Syamimi when she was alive,” he said
Her mother Nur Syahidah Tan Siew Guat, 31, who was saddened by the death of her youngest child, said she was grateful that her daughter’s last wish was fulfilled.
Meanwhile, Chairman of UMNO Youth Community Complaints Bureau, Sheikh Nafiq Alfirdaous send his condolences to Syamimi’s family today.
Funeral arrangements were made by the Kuala Lumpur Immigration Department which had provided assistance since Nur Syamimi was hospitalised.
He said all parties, including the family, the hospital, bureau, Baitulmal KL and Department of Social Welfare had also assisted Syamimi’s sister and her family throughout her ordeal. – BERNAMA
