According to WBRZ, he underwent a total of 47 chemotherapy treatments.

The treatment seemed to work efficiently until the family received a very heartbreaking news.

The doctors said there are no more medical procedures that are available to hopefully restore Jerome's normal life.

Though chemo would help for a matter of time - but the cancerous disease won't be permanently removed.

The devastated family told the school afterwards that Jerome wouldn't make it to the graduation ceremony.

The school decided to make a 'special' graduation ceremony - just for Jerome.

Teachers, friends, faculty and nurses went by his side and congratulated him for receiving his early diploma.

After happily receiving his diploma, Jerome peacefully passed away at their home.

His father said,

“The closer you are to your kids, the more you can accept the bad things if they get worse. Because you know that you did everything you could for them, and you won’t have any regrets.”

KAMI encourages extremely ill people to not lose hope - especially when you are diagnosed with a serious sickness. Stay strong and believe for better days ahead!
