- Kris Aquino gave her Instagam followers an update about her health.
- She said that she took tests to determine tumor markers in her body.
Fans were alarmed when the Queen of All Media revealed her drastic weight loss in the past weeks.
In a lengthy Instagram post on Monday, October 1, she explained that she underwent tests for tumor markers as “some tests done in the Philippines last week had results no longer as good as those from San Francisco in March 2018.”
I’ve shared my life by courageously sharing my trials without hiding the painful truths. And i decided that this chapter will be no different.
Bimb & i read through several medical terms i googled so he’d understand what may lie ahead. These are from medical tests we’ve treated since September 2015 but unfortunately some tests done in the Philippines last week had results no longer as good as those from San Francisco in March 2018. My 11 year old needed the assurance that his mama would fight bravely because my tests start tomorrow.
She added that they decided to fly to Singapore as she knows many Filipinos there working in the medical field.
We flew to Singapore because i know how many Filipinos work in the medical field here & i wanted to lessen my family’s burden by choosing transparency.
Kris then revealed that all of her tests for any tumor markers are all negative, however, she’s still experiencing hypertension, severe allergies, and migraine, amid a business dispute.
Let me be categorical: all tests for any tumor markers were negative. Because of my very evident weight loss i had tests done to specifically answer that fear. Atty Fortun’s statement about my treatment w/ prescription medication for hypertension, severe allergies, and migraine remains true. But we flew to Singapore to see one specialist for 3 areas of my health that needed to be immediately addressed with appropriate treatment for me to have the best chance to regain my health.
The words our Mom said near the end of her life are vividly recalled in my mind “i fought for my life because i knew you weren’t ready.” Our mother braved the surgeries, treatments, and extreme physical pain of terminal cancer because she loved us so much that she wanted to give us what our dad’s assassination stole from us- enough time to prepare and accept God’s will.
Her mother, the late former President Corazon Aquino, died of colon cancer nine years ago.
