Known for voicing her struggle about being a moon child and raising awareness on her condition for years, public personality Fatima Zahra Ghazaoui has passed away at the age of 31 in Casablanca.
Being diagnosed with Xeroderma Pigmentosum made Ghazaoui, just like all moon children, very sensitive to sunlight and ultraviolet radiation.
With almost 80K followers on Instagram, Ghazaoui shared her daily life and health struggles for years, hoping to make others feel less lonely.
The news of her death is being mourned by Moroccans all over social media, recalling her relentless efforts and unwavering hope.
The disease Ghazaoui had manifests in serious sunburns even at the slightest sun exposure, which calls for taking extreme measures in order to live a healthy life.
Anything that emits lights, even some light bulbs, puts people with this disease at serious risk.
The normal life expectancy of individuals with this rare condition is 29 years. The longest anyone has ever lived with it is 46.
