American rapper Latruth, born Robert Hampton, has celebrated becoming cancer-free after successfully undergoing a gastrectomy to remove his entire stomach.
Four years ago, the musician took a series of tests and discovered he had the CDH1 gene mutation after his sister passed from stomach cancer.
For Latruth, doctors caught his cancer at its early stage to prevent him from going through chemotherapy.
Recounting his journey
''I’m so glad I did gene testing four years ago and found out I had the CDH1 gene mutation after my sister passed away from stomach cancer and kept doing checkups.
