Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano is now cancer-free!
The veteran singer made the revelation through a video uploaded on his social media accounts yesterday, July 4.
“God blesses you in ways that will simply make you see just how good He really is,” he captioned.
In the video, Gary opened up about what he has been through for the past year. He shared, “It was May of last year that I was given a life-changing diagnosis of cancer in my right kidney. This was revealed to me as I was healing from a bypass procedure done last May 6, 2018.”
“A few weeks later, on June 13, 2018, I underwent surgery to remove the cancer from my kidney," he added.
Before being diagnosed with cancer, Gary battled Type 1 diabetes and suffered from coronary heart disease which prompted him to undergo a heart bypass procedure.
Gary remained faithful in spite of his health troubles. He explained, "A little over a year later, I'm still in awe at how God kept me on the palm of Jesus' hand through it all. There really is no safer place to be than in His hands. Battling with Type 1 diabetes, then a bypass, and kidney cancer...I'm still here. And He has been as faithful as ever. Indeed there is absolutely nothing impossible with God."
He also thanked everyone who supported and prayed for him all throughout his treatment, “There is deep, deep gratitude in my heart; for my family, the doctors, my relatives, my closest of friends, the various churches and the fans.”
"Those prayers have once again have been answered because today after seeing the results of my annual checkup...I am cancer free. God is good!"
Gary is a regular performer in “ASAP Natin ‘To,” and recently served as a judge in “World of Dance Philippines.”
