Christian Cabrera Cause Of Death

He tested COVID-19 positive around the time of Christmas. Not long afterward, he was in an emergency room with pneumonia in both lungs.

Thanks for all the love and prayers everyone! I can hear all ya prayers in my sleep! Thank you and hope to see ya all soon!”

Jino, who received his brother’s text, revealed he wrote, “I can’t breathe again I regret not getting my vaccine, if I can do it all over again I would do it in a heartbeat to save my life. I’m fighting for my life here and I wish I have gotten vaccinated.”
