On Christmas eve, Kris Aquino expressed her gratitude to those who are praying for her health. 

“We may be an ocean apart, BUT it matters so much to know that many of you who don’t even know me or my sons personally, care enough to remember us & want me to win this seemingly endless battle with my autoimmune condition,” she wrote on Instagram. 

“May God bless your kind & compassionate hearts…my Christmas wish is makabawi ako sa ginagawa niyong mabuti para sa ‘kin ngayon-my 1st cycle of immunotherapy treatment (same medicine as chemo BUT at a much lower dose given over a longer period of time) will take about 10 months,” she continued.  

“For now idadaan ko na lang po ang pasasalamat ko sa mga pinagkakatiwalaan kong mga kaibigan sa religious & medical communities #christmas2022 #thankful,” she added. 

The “Queen of All Media” also thanked Filipino call center agents for their prayers.

“A lot of times I’ve had to verify over the phone my identity & 80% of the time BPOs from back home handle the calls,” Kris wrote.

“It’s heartwarming to hear the agents who know the calls are being recorded be ‘Dedma’ & say- ‘ma’am, my family always pray for you because we want you to regain your health…’ others have said, ‘Ms Aquino, I hope your treatment is working & that you’ll be healed,” she continued.

The seasoned actress said that because of the people who are praying for her, Ariel Rivera‘s “Sana Ngayong Pasko” did not become her family’s theme song.

“Sana Ngayong Pasko” is about longing for someone you love on Christmas day.

Two of her four diagnosed autoimmune diseases are life-threatening, and a fifth is highly likely “because of my distinct physical manifestations,” Kris said.

The showbiz personality, who has been in the US for more than six months said that they are in a legal process to extend their stay abroad for her treatment.
