Teacher Who Lived A Super Clean Lifestyle Dies at Age 33

 

Matt Meads, 33, a health-obsessed teacher, ironically dies despite living a clean lifestyle, reports Sam Corbishley of Metro, the UK’s highest-circulating newspaper. Matt avoided alcohol, smoking, junk food, and anything unhealthy. He also strived to eat well and exercise because he wanted to live a long life. For weeks, Matt suffered from stomach pains, night sweats, and fatigue. He and wife Abi, 27, dismissed the symptoms as “general end-of-term tiredness.” A blood test revealed that the 33-year-old had a rare and aggressive form of blood cancer: acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Matt “did everything he could to try and prevent anything from happening to him,” Abi states. 

Unfortunately, he was rendered helpless as his health rapidly deteriorated. Matt died from a pulmonary embolism after three chemotherapy sessions 20 days after he was diagnosed with leukemia. Abi was devastated with Matt’s death, urging people to have themselves checked and tested if they possess the same symptoms as her husband’s.

She describes Matt as a happy, kind, funny, and loving individual. Abi continues, “He loved his sport. He would go to the gym, he loved being outside and walking. He liked cycling. He was careful about what he ate.” Matt always applied sunscreen because he was paranoid about being afflicted with skin cancer. 

Matt was initially diagnosed with constipation, but a second blood test revealed he had leukemia after returning to the hospital a second time. Abi wished it was spotted sooner. However, she believes that the hospital did everything they could for Matt.

“We never expected it would be that. We had thought worst case scenario it was gallstones or an impacted bowel, so when he came and said leukaemia it was just unexpected,” Abi says.  Apparently, the symptoms are vague and it can manifest “within days.” Abi explains, “It doesn’t have to be something that has been happening for weeks or months.”
