Jan 24, 2022: On the social networking site Twitter, a board member of the Mersin Industrialists and Businessmen’s Association (MESIAD) confirmed the tragic news of the 51-year-old actor’s death, writing: we have lost Pekcan.
He also prayed for the forgiveness of the actor. It is to be noted that the actor was suffering from cancer. He had complained of back pain in October, after which it was found out during the hospital treatment that the tumor had spread to the liver and adrenal glands. He was undergoing treatment for the cancer.
The actor was just 51 and his friends supported him well in his constant struggle but he could not make it unfortunately.
Pekcan will be sent off to his last journey in his hometown Mersin tomorrow.
Pekin had earlier said on social media that his biggest support is his family and close friends. I will do my best to restore my health. He asked the fans for prayers.
He wrote, “Dear friends… The process that started with the doctor I went to with a complaint of back pain has come to this point today. I have lung cancer. The tumor has also spread to the liver and adrenal glands. Unfortunately, this disease did not show any symptoms in its initial stages. The first day of chemotherapy… My biggest support is with my family. So are my friends nearby… I will do my best to regain my health. Keep your health wishes and prayers with you. Stay well…”
