Singer-actress Gigi de Lana asked the public for prayers for her mother with Stage 4 breast cancer, who is fighting for her life in the hospital.

In a video posted on Lana’s official Facebook page on Wednesday, May 8, the singer took time during one of her gigs to share the condition of her mom and her wish for her recovery.


“My mom is at the ICU now. If you have seen my Instagram stories, meron doon prayer. If you want to pray for my mom, you can pray for her if you want. She’s fighting for her life now, and I don’t know if pag-uwi ko nandoon pa siya. But I really wish she would be there. I really want to hug her and kiss her,” she said, holding back her tears.


The 28-year-old singer underscored that she regrets not doing things with her mother and urged everyone to love their family, especially their parents, while they still can.

“Because, you know, hindi niyo alam kung kailan mawawala ‘yung taong mahalaga sayo, so spend the time sa kanila and love with all your heart. There’s nothing wrong with it. Just love para hindi ka rin mag-regret,” said de Lana.

“Because now, I am regretting things that I didn’t do with my mom. I love her so much. And please love your family kasi sila lang ‘yung nandiyan para sainyo. Trust me, they love you with all their heart. Mahal na mahal kayo ng parents niyo,” added the singer-actress.

De Lana first opened up about the health condition of her mother in February 2023, sharing that the reason she cut her hair short at the time was to support her mom, who was suffering from hair loss due to the cancer.

“I decided to cut my hair; sinabi ko na lang new look. The main reason was my mom. She is doing chemo. Ang gusto ko masabayan ko siya sa journey niya. I didn’t tell my mom the reason I cut my hair short. Siya kalbo na,” she shared at the time.


De Lana rose to fame when she competed in Tawag ng Tanghalan on “It’s Showtime.” She gained more recognition because of her viral cover songs on YouTube and Facebook. She made her film debut in the 2020 film “Four Sisters Before the Wedding.”
