Kris Aquino reiterated her gratitude for the love and support of her loyal fans in a message she shared on social media to celebrate the holiday season.
In an Instagram post on Christmas Eve, the former TV host and actress thanked those who keep her in their prayers amid her “seemingly endless battle” with her multiple autoimmune conditions.
“Gusto kong mag THANK YOU sa inyong lahat who still keep me, my sons, and my sisters & their families back home in your prayers. You all have your personal problems & heartaches BUT because of you, HINDI ito ang naging theme song namin nila kuya & bimb,” wrote Kris, before quoting lyrics from Ariel Rivera’s “Sana Ngayong Pasko.”
“We may be an ocean apart, BUT it matters so much to know that many of you who don’t even know me or my sons personally, care enough to remember us & want me to win this seemingly endless battle with my autoimmune conditions,” she said. “May God bless your kind & compassionate hearts.”
Discussing her health battle, Kris said two of her four autoimmune diseases are considered “life threatening.” She also said that there’s a good chance she would be diagnosed with a fifth condition based on her “distinct physical manifestations.”
“My Christmas wish is makabawi ako sa ginagawa niyong mabuti para sa ‘kin ngayon,” she then told her fans.
“My 1st cycle of immunotherapy treatment (same medicine as chemo BUT at a much lower dose given over a longer period of time) will take about 10 months… for now idadaan ko na lang po ang pasasalamat ko sa mga pinagkakatiwalaan kong mga kaibigan sa religious & medical communities.”
Kris and her sons have been staying in the US for her medical treatment. In her post, she shared that she has filed the necessary paperwork so they can extend their stay there legally.
Earlier, the country’s “Queen of All Media” said that she was on the first step of “what will likely be more than 18 months of diagnosis & treatment” for her multiple diseases.
“I’m signed up in a hospital’s Center for those with Rare & Undiagnosed illnesses. My last set of test results were conflicting; that’s why I chose to have my full diagnosis & treatment with a team of multidisciplinary doctors,” said Kris.
She added that she will be admitted in early 2023 to undergo “every imaginable test” her doctors will deem necessary.
Referring to her sons, Kris said, “They are my REASONS kung bakit TULOY ANG LABAN, BAWAL SUMUKO.”
“I pray for the blessing to be healthy enough to still be their mama – the one who would cook, travels for fun, goes to Church, and watches movies w/ them,” she wrote, adding, “All in God’s perfect time…”
