Cancer patient allegedly sneaks out of the hospital to drink and smoke

Reports reaching Legit.ng claim that a terminally-ill man identified as Derrick Tembo snuck out of his hospital bed to hit a joint for a session of drinking and smoking.

Tembo who has been told by his doctors that he might not survive the cancer that is gradually eating him up decided he would rather spend his last moments enjoying the frivolities of life rather than lay on his hospital bed in pity.

Derrick who seemed excited to be hitting the joint shared photos on his social media page while announcing that it might be his last moment since his doctors have said he will not survive cancer but rather than wallow in pity, he stepped out of the hospital to enjoy drinking and smoking for possibly the last time.

His photos have gone viral on social media with most people agreeing that humans live once and something must kill a man. Some praised him for his courage instead of being down trodden over the condition of his health, he is managing to live his best life.
