Father Succumbs to the Same Disease That Claimed the Lives of His Three Children


A Brazilian father has tragically died from the same hereditary disease that killed his three children.

Régis Feitosa Mota, 53, was born with Li-Fraumeni syndrome, a condition that increases the chances of developing cancerous tumors, Jam Press reports.

People with the disorder may be stricken with more than one cancer in their lifetime.

Mota was diagnosed with cancer three times between 2016 and 2023. Then in January 2023 he was diagnosed of multiple myeloma.

“We discovered yet another disease,” he said at the time. “We have already treated lymphocytic leukemia and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which are now stabilized.”

But we have been treating them, they are not cured,” he continued. “This time, we discovered multiple myeloma, which even affects the bones.”

He tragically died on Sunday, August 13 in Ceará, Brazil — which is Father’s Day in the South American country.

“Our warrior went to meet his children exactly on Father’s Day,” mourned Mota’s brother, Rogério Feitosa Mota. “May God take you, my brother! We love you so much.”

“My friends, I never imagined making this post,” wrote Mota’s wife, Mariella Pompeu. “I never prepared myself for this moment because I was always convinced Régis would make a full recovery.”

“It’s an indescribable pain,” she continued. “The ground has opened up and I don’t know what life will be like without his affection, companionship and absolute love.”

Their son, Pedro died of a brain tumor in 2020 at 22, and daughter Anna Carolina succumbed to a brain tumor in 2022, at the age of 25, after previously beating leukemia.
