“Mga mahal kong kababayan
“Ako po ay nag aalala kay ms Kris Aquino bilang isang kaibigan, katrabaho at isang Pilipino.
“Nais ko po makiusap sa mga patuloy na bumabanat kay Ms. Aquino na magpaka-makatao muna po kayo.
“Hindi naman po tayo bulag para makita na may dinaramdam po siya at sa kasalukuyan ay dumaraan sa gamutan.
“Bigyan po natin ng kapayapaan at tamang pansin lalo ng moral support ang taong may karamdaman.
“Ano man po ang ating religion o ang ating political affiliations ay ipagpanalangin po natin ang kanyang kalusugan.
“In shaa Allah.”
On Jan. 12, Kris shared an update on her health that left her fans worried.
Kris was alarmingly thin in her latest photo and video uploaded on social media.
Fans prayed for her fast recovery.
“Mahaba pa ang laban ko to strengthen my body & heal my broken heart. But from childhood I already knew, for me weakness could never be an option, especially now because I have kuya josh & bimb who still need me to love, care, and provide for them. Para sa dalawang pinakamamahal ko, hindi ako susuko,” wrote Kris on Instgram.
Kris has been diagnosed with rare autoimmune disease. The clevelandclinic.org defined autoimmune diseases as:
“Your immune system is made up of organs and cells meant to protect your body from bacteria, parasites, viruses and cancer cells. An autoimmune disease is the result of the immune system accidentally attacking your body instead of protecting it. It’s unclear why your immune system does this.
“There are over 100 known autoimmune diseases. Common ones include lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
“Autoimmune diseases can affect many types of tissues and nearly any organ in your body. They may cause a variety of symptoms including pain, tiredness (fatigue), rashes, nausea, headaches, dizziness and more. Specific symptoms depend on the exact disease.”
