Kim Chiu says sister Lakam’s recovery is her wish on 33rd birthday: ‘She is my strength’
On her 33rd birthday, Kim Chiu only asked one wish from her fans — prayer for the recovery of her older sister Lakam.
Chiu made known to her fans her distress over her sister’s health as she posted on Instagram on Wednesday, April 19, a picture of Lakam while lying in a hospital bed.
The Kapamilya star also shared glimpses of her hospital visit in her post, saying that her birthday is “different” this year.
“Today is different. I wish it were different,” the actress began before thanking her supporters for the greetings and well-wishes on her special day.

“Before today ends, I want to say thank you for all your greetings and well wishes. Thank you for the flowers, cakes, and meaningful birthday messages you sent here online and personally. I’m sorry I couldn’t answer all your messages. I appreciate you all so much,” she said in the caption.
The “My Binondo” star then revealed that Lakam’s recovery is the only gift that she wants to receive from the heavens.
“Kung may hihingin man akong regalo sa inyo ngayon, ‘yun ay prayers para sa Ate Lakam ko. Everything happened in a snap of a finger,” she added, without disclosing her sister’s condition.
Chiu, who’s known to be close to Lakan, also described her sister as her “strength.”
“She is my strength, and now the word strength becomes blurry. Please pray for her recovery,” she wrote.
