Actor O’Neal Nyanje and his wife Jenna are mourning the death of their baby girl, Etana.
The actor, who is well known for popular TV shows including Saida and Wash and Set, lost their baby girl on Wednesday, October 21.
According to the Fox River mission’s website, the parents of the girl had left her in the care of a babysitter as Jenna and O’Neal went for chemotherapy in the hospital.
Etana wandered away from the babysitter to a nearby pool where she fell in and passed away.
“THESE FIRST COUPLE WEEKS OF JUNE HOWEVER, WE’VE FACED SOME HEALTH DISCOVERIES THAT HAVE BEEN HARD, HEARTBREAKING AND HAVE CAUGHT US SHORT OF BREATH.”
“A BONE MARROW BIOPSY CONFIRMED WHAT WE COULDN’T AND DON’T WANT TO IMAGINE… O’NEAL HAS BEEN DIAGNOSES WITH MULTIPLE MYELOMA. A CANCER ATTACKING HIS BONES.”
Our deepest condolences to the family as they mourn the passing of their little angel. May she rest in peace.
