Joy Chico Ejiro buries 7-year-old son who died of cancer
Filmmaker and fashion designer, Joy Chico Ejiro, has laid her little boy, Eloviano, to rest in the United States where he passed on due to cancer, yesterday.
Before he was committed to mother earth, a memorial service was held in his honor in the early hours of the day.
The little boy had lost to cancer at the end of 2021, barely 11 months after his father, Chico Ejiro who was also a film producer, died.
Eloviano was survived by his mother and two older siblings.
In a Facebook post, Joy wrote;
“First I want to thank GOD for Strength, Grace, Merc,y and Favour. Eloviano was a brave boy, he kept fighting till I told him it was OK to let go that I will be fine, I will miss him but I know where he is going is peaceful without pain, needles and medications. Words cannot express the overwhelming support I got from my siblings and friends. They supported me spiritually, financially, emotionally. I can’t thank everyone enough, people that were there through my struggle and grief, alot didn’t leave my side, they stood like they were positioned by GOD to constantly lift me when I fall. Thank you all for the overwhelming phone calls, whatsapp messages, DM and Facebook messages. GOD bless you all @eniliseceo@kateimafidon@row_lo74 @edith_iwi @annasoroirorere.
