Pascual first met Espina in August 2018 while she was staying in Ospital ng Makati. “This is what she has to live, this is the life she has to live and yet she chooses to be happy, she still chooses to fight,” the singer said of her in a video posted by One Music PH.
He also organized a star-studded benefit concert for Espina held at the Historia Boutique Bar and Restaurant in Quezon City last January. JB
