Kris Aquino asked the public to continue praying for her healing, saying she is still determined to live for a longer time despite the odds not being in her favor.

After her “Fast Talk with Boy Abunda” interview on her 53rd birthday on Wednesday, Feb. 14, Aquino shared her message of gratitude to Abunda, the GMA Network, her loved ones and supporters via her Instagram page.


“Yes, because of Churg Strauss, I now have cardiomyopathy. This means my heart muscles are having trouble pumping blood due to inflammation, and because of that inflammation, it’s exhausting my heart and causing it to begin to fail and ultimately, please pray with me—sana hindi tuluyang sumuko or mag-cardiac arrest,” she spoke of her condition.


The Queen of All Media underscored how the public has been generous with their prayers for her, being the reason why she gives them the “truth” regarding her health.

She also asked them to include in their prayers her friends and loved ones who are battling illnesses as well.

“Just in case this is the last birthday I get to celebrate here on earth, thank you Kuya [and] Bimb for the most precious privilege of being chosen to be your mom,” she continued. “Thank you to my sisters for their love [and] generosity. Thank you to my small but very close circle of cousins [and] friends who have shared my life and their lives with me. Thank you to all of you for making all my childhood dreams come true.”

“I still want to live. I know the odds are against me dahil ang puso hindi pwedeng diktahan, pero sana sa tulong ng dasal niyo mabigyan pa ko ng konting extension,” she said. “You have my love [and] eternal gratitude. Happy Valentine’s Day.”

Aquino, who is in California for her medical treatment for her five autoimmune diseases, revealed during the interview that the next six months will be very crucial for her as she will take a new drug that would weaken her immune system.

“I hate to say it, but I’ve always been very upfront and honest. Hinarap ko na ‘to, especially na birthday ko, pahiram na lang ‘to ng Diyos. Binigyan na ako ng bonus. Whatever days are left, it’s a blessing. But I really want to stay alive,” she said.
