The younger Seko was diagnosed in 2012. In March this year he published a book titled, "Leading the Cancer Marathon - Paced by the Crazy Seko Family!" giving an honest look inside his and the Seko family's eight-year struggle against the illness. In a statement the elder Seko said, "Nothing could be more worthy of respect in the eyes of his parents than how he never stopped trying to give courage to others suffering from the same disease he himself was battling. It's my hope that he can now rest peacefully."
