In a Facebook post of the administrator of "Hisham Go" page, it said that Moi died at around 9:00 p.m.

"His wake will be at St. Peter's Kawit, Cavite and public visit will be available by 6:00 PM today. His remains will be transferred to Oroquieta, Misamis Occidental this weekend, date to be finalized," the post said.

The Facebook page also shared appreciation for those who have helped them: "Tita Lorelie, Char and the entire family sends their thanks to everyone who fought with and for them in prayers and in giving."

Moi, who worked in a financial firm, was diagnosed with the same liver cancer his brothers Rowden and Hasset suffered from in February this year (READ: Man whose brothers died from liver cancer diagnosed with the same disease).

For several months, Moi has undergone some operations to treat his illness. His family and friends raised funds online and through concert for a cause.

Since his return from China for the medical procedures early November, Hisham's health was not in a good condition. "He is enduring from so much pain and he is having a hard time breathing." It was found out that the stage 1 cancer has progressed to a stage 4 cancer.

"Kapag inisip ko kung nasaan sila, lagi ko na lang iniisip na masaya sila at hindi na sila nasasaktan. Masakit pero sabi ko, darating din ang time na mawawala rin ako, makakasama ko rin sila. Hihintayin ko nalang 'yung time na 'yun para makasama sila. 'Yun ang nagbibigay sa akin ng lakas," the mother of Go brothers told Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho (KMJS).

Here's KMJS feature story for Hisham Go seeking for financial assistance:

In May 2014, Rowden, 29, was diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer and was only given three weeks to live. Since he didn’t experience any symptom weeks prior to the diagnosis, their family was caught off guard. Still, Rowden managed to fulfil his promise and marry his fiancé in the hospital. Merely 10 hours after they said their “I do’s”, Rowden passed away.

A video of the heartbreaking moment went viral on social media.

A month following Rowden’s passing, his family decided to undergo tests to screen for possible cancer or blood defect. Hasset, who was a 29-year-old chef at that time, was also found to have the same type of liver cancer. Although he went through surgery to have the tumor removed in his liver, it recurred prompting him to try alternative medication and eventually chemotherapy. But in October 2015, Hasset, just like Rowden, succumbed to cancer.
