MANILA, Philippines—Malacañang urged the nation to pray for comedy king Dolphy who is fighting for his life in the hospital.
“We enjoin the Filipino people to pray for Rodolfo Quizon Sr., whom the entire nation fondly knows as Dolphy,” presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said in a text message he sent in the early hours of Thursday.
Lacierda said President Benigno Aquino’s “thoughts are with Mr. Quizon and his loved ones.”
“We are united in our intentions for our revered icon of the Philippine entertainment industry,” he also said.
Dolphy, who will turn 84 years old next month, has been confined at the Makati Medical Center for two weeks now and is in critical condition.
