Jamaican runner Twayne Wade has died from cancer

wayne Crooks dreamt of being the next big track star, but that dream was cut short last Sunday. The 23-year-old Jamaican athlete died from stage four stomach cancer in New Orleans, USA, and now his family is seeking help to bring his body home.
“The Saturday he said to me, ‘Mommy, God forbid anything happen to me, I want to go back to Jamaica, I want to go back to Jamaica to bury’,” his mother, Joy Garvey. She said that the family members are worried that they would not be able to honour his final request, so they created a GoFundMe account to help with the cost to bring him home.
“It’s going to be a lot [of money] especially because I spend a lot of money going up and down there, and the tests cost too,” she said.
Garvey said her son began feeling slight stomach pains since June of this year, but they didn’t see it as a cause for alarm.
“I went to his competition in May and Twayne was ripping up the track. Twayne didn’t look like somebody sick,” she added.
“He was feeling a little pain in June. He was on vacation in Jamaica, in July, and he went back up in New Orleans because he had to go to school. About three weeks ago, they called and said I had to come down because my son is sick bad,” she said.
