Even the fittest sportsmen are not immune. When Financial Planning in Dubai, this Insurance Broker in Dubai says make sure you have enough Critical Illness Benefit! In such a case, at least Omar would have had enough money to do what he wanted for himself and those he cared about……………….
UK boxer Omar Henry, who was 12-0-1, was supposed to fight on November 16 last year. But he didn’t feel well a few days before the fight, went to see his doctor and was diagnosed with Stage 4 gall bladder cancer.
He posted a series of heart-wrenching messages on his Facebook fan page in which he pleaded for prayers and support. Perhaps the most tragic was his January 9 post, when he said he hoped to live to celebrate his 26th birthday on February 8.
Sadly, he fell a week short of that goal.
After being diagnosed, Henry also did a series of interviews with reporters from boxing websites in which he expressed optimism that he would survive the deadly diagnosis.
In an interview with FightHype published on December 12, Henry said he felt blessed but was struggling to think of the future.
