This is the cause of the death of Yasoda
Yasoda had been suffering from cancer for a long time. She was previously treated for piles. But, it later turned out that she had developed rectal cancer. When she was diagnosed, it was already too late. The cancer was in third stage.
That was 7 years ago. But, she fought with the disease. She lived this long because of the love of Madan Krishna and her positive attitude towards life. She went through multiple chemotherapy sessions. The cancer treatment by chemotherapy is a very painful process. It also has a lot of side effects to the body.
According to friends close to Madan Krishna, Yasodha had gone through 97 chemo therapy sessions. In her last stage, cancer was also seen in her lungs and in bone marrow of her spine.
15-days before her death, lower part of her body had stopped working. Because of the seriousness in her health, their daughter had also arrived from the USA. She was being treated at cancer hospital. It was more like waiting for her to die as there were no hope of improvement.
