The nursing technician, who worked at the National Cancer Institute (Inca), did not resist the disease and died on Saturday.
Yasmin was already mourning her father’s death, Carlos Sarmento, 57 years old. The retiree even recorded an optimistic audio from the hospital, saying he was homesick and would return home, but was unable to keep his promise. He died on Tuesday (30), four days before Marisa.
“My father was a very important person to us, it was everything in my son’s life. I received an audio from him at the hospital [dizendo] that he was going to get better, that he was going to come back to us, but unfortunately he didn’t (…) Because of this accursed disease I lost my father on Tuesday and my aunt on Saturday.
