The 14-year-old boy with a giant tumor on his face, who traveled from Cuba to Miami to have it removed has died.

Emanuel Zayas was diagnosed with polyostotic fibrous dysplasia, which reportedly replaces bones with fibrous tissue. At age 11, what physicians believed to be a pimple, turned out to be an ossifying fibroma- which has since grown into a 10-pound tumor.

According to reports, the tumor began to affect Zayas’ breathing, as well as the bone structure of his face. He lived with the illness for years and in September 2017, a Miami specialist offered to assist in the removal of the large tumor after learning of the young boy’s story.

Cuban doctors had refused to perform the risky surgery on the boy. But hope came in the form of the Miami specialist, who works at UHealth-University of Miami Health System. He offered his assistance and the boy’s family flew out to Miami for the surgery.

Unfortunately, Zayas died in the wake of the 12-hour procedure.

“I am saddened by the fact that we are losing him and that the physiological stress of the surgery was apparently too much for his compromised anatomy,” the chief of oral and maxillofacial surgery for the University of Miami Health System said in a statement to the Herald. “Our hopes of saving his life, and with that allowing him a better quality of life, were not realized.”

“Our condolences and prayers for Emanuel’s family and the loss of a very brave young man,” Marx said, according to NBC 6. “Another angel has arrived in heaven.

Lille’s Nigeria international Victor Osimhen has been named September’s French Ligue 1 Player of the Month.

The 20-year-old striker, who joined the club in August from Belgian side RSC Charleroi, scored twice and provided two assists in five matches last month as Lille climbed into the top five.

“It’s been an amazing time at this club and to get this award is surreal,” says Osimhen

“I’m grateful to those who voted, thankful to my teammates, our backroom staff and the entire Lille fans for the love.

“I never expected this to happen so soon but I guess this is what comes when you are surrounded by great players, loved ones and the blessings of God.”

Osimhen saw off the challenges of Monaco’s Algerian international Islam Slimani and veteran Nantes defender Nicolas Pallois to the monthly honour awarded by the Player’s Union (UNFP).

He succeeds Angola-born Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga, who won the August award and became the youngest ever winner at the age of 16.

An incredible two months for Osimhen in the colours of Lille has resulted in eight goals in 11 appearances for the northern club.

Osimhen was the top scorer as Nigeria clinched a fifth Under-17 World Cup title in 2015 with 10 goals in Chile, which saw him win the Golden Boot and Silver Ball.

He also scored on his full debut for Nigeria in a 2-2 friendly draw against Ukraine in September.
