PARIT BUNTAR, Aug 15 (Bernama) -- Toddler Annas Mikhail Abdullah, three, a chronic leukaemia patient died early this morning at Hospital Pulau Pinang.
His grandmother, Faridah Wan Chik, 48, said the boy was admitted to the hospital at 9pm last night and died at 1.36 am.
Faridah who had taken Annas Mikhail to the hospital herself, told Bernama that he would be buried at the Kampung Tanah Kebun Muslim cemetery in Simpang Lima this morning.
The boy who was diagnosed with leukaemia since he was six-months-old, and is the eldest of three children, had been cared for by his grandmother.
On July 6, the Friends of Childhood Cancer Association (northern region), a non-governmental organisation, had enabled the child's desire to see butterflies and the stars at the Taiping Zoo and Night Safari, to come true after doctors had confirmed that his condition was deteriorating.
