Despite all odds, Marlo Mortel chooses to hope – and he encourages his mother to do the same.
The Kapamilya star’s mother, Merilie Pamintuan, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014 and recently underwent a few surgeries. Unfortunately, the surgeries revealed that her breast cancer has reached stage four – the worst stage.
Nonetheless, Merlie – a true warrior – continues to fight. It’s her fighting spirit that inspires Marlo to keep going as he continues to work hard to provide for his family. Last July 26, Marlo dedicated a post on Instagram to his mother, giving her words of encouragement.
“You are so strong Mommy. Thank you for always fighting! We will fight with you all the way wag ka mapapagod. We love you so much,” he said.
The Kapamilya singer-actor, who usually keeps mum about his family life, shared on social media that this has been a tough season for their family. However, despite the ordeal, Marlo and his family continue to fight.
Many fans have expressed on social media that they’re sending their prayers and best wishes to the family, encouraging them to stay strong.
