2 Aug – It is a sad day for Malaysian actor Arja Lee as his 60-year-old mother has just passed away at 4am this morning in Hospital Selayang due to oral cancer.
The 30-year-old actor, whose birth name is Azharudin Ramli, announced the unfortunate news of her passing on his Twitter.
His mother had been diagnosed with the cancer 13 years ago, and had been in a critical condition since three weeks ago. She was moved from Hospital Seberang Jaya, Pulau Pinang to the Palliative Care Unit (PCU) in Hospital Selayang since last December, when it was discovered that her cancer has spread to other parts of her body.
"Her body has just been bathed and she will be blessed after Friday prayers. Insyaallah, everything will go smoothly with God's will," wrote Arja.
Prayers will be held at Surau Al-Syakirin Seksyen 1 Bandar Mahkota Cheras, followed by a burial in Cheras Perdana today.
