Muktamoni dies after battle with rare disease hemangioma
Sayeed Muhammad: After a long fight with an abnormal tumor on her right hand, Muktamoni has finally passed away yesterday at 6:45am.
She was diagnosed with a rare disease which caused her right arm to swell up. According to her father, her physical condition was critical and he has no grudges on the doctors regarding the treatment.
He also thanked Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for undertaking the responsibility of his daughter. She was buried beside her grandfather’s grave following a Namaz-e-janaza after the Zuh’r prayers. She caught the nation’s attention by her condition.
On August 12, 2017 doctors at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) removed a 3kg tumor from her arm after a biopsy showed the growth to be in the artery of her hand.
She later underwent three more consecutive surgeries on her right arm on August 29, September 5, and October 8 last year. “Muktamoni stopped eating and talking since Tuesday,” said Ibrahim. “But since she did the same thing twice before, we thought she would recover. But I did not think she would leave us.” said Police Superintendent Sajjadur Rahman.
