Emanuel Zayas, 14, had surgery in Miami to treat the benign tumor, but he later developed kidney and lung complications.

While the operation was effective, the 14-year-old Cuban kid endured kidney and lung confusions days after the fact, as indicated by the Miami Herald.

Emanuel Zayas was born with a rare disorder called polyostotic fibrous dysplasia, a condition that replaces multiple areas of bones with fibrous tissue and may cause fractures and deformity of the legs, arms and skull.

The tumor had been growing since he was 11, when what he thought was a pimple on his nose was actually skull bone growing from his upper jaw. "If nothing is done it will cause a fracture of his neck or it will suffocate him from breathing, just by its physical size".

What is Polyostotic fibrous dysplasia? Said Marx in a statement: "After visiting Emanuel last night and observing a ray of hope from his pupillary reflexes and the muscle tone of his face, I was informed this morning that his condition had turned grave".

But on Friday, Marx announced on his Facebook page that despite early glimmers of hope, Zayas did not survive long after the surgery was completed.

"Our hopes of saving his life and in doing so would allow him a better quality of life have not been realised".
