Gary V now cancer-free
MANILA, Philippines — Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano is finally free of cancer.
Valenciano disclosed Thursday he underwent surgery to remove cancer from his kidney just a few weeks after his bypass procedure last year.
“It was May of last year that I was given a life-changing diagnosis of cancer in my right kidney. This was revealed to me as I was healing from a bypass procedure done last May 6, 2018. A few weeks later, on June 13, 2018, I underwent surgery to remove the cancer from my kidney,” the singer wrote in a video over Twitter.

Valenciano expressed “awe” of how he is still alive despite battling diabetes, a bypass and kidney cancer.
“A little over a year later, I’m still in awe at how God kept me on the palm of Jesus’ hand through it all. You know my friend? There really is no safer place to be than in His hands,” the singer said.
“Battling with type-1 diabetes, then a bypass, and kidney cancer… I’m still here. And He has been as faithful as ever. Indeed there is absolutely nothing impossible with God,” he added.
After undergoing his annual checkup, the 54-year-old singer found out that he is cancer-free.
“There is a deep gratitude in my heart; for my family, the doctors, my relatives, my closest of friends, the various churches and the fans. Those prayers have once again have been answered because today after seeing the results of my annual checkup … I am cancer free. God is good,” he said. (Editor: Mike U. Frialde)
