John Regala, suffering from liver cirrhosis; pleads for help

Former actor John Regala was in tears when he faced DZMM's Teleradyo's Julius Babao for an interview earlier today, July 29.

During his interview, John took the time to thank a food delivery driver named Carlo Clariza. He posted about his Pasay encounter with John in a Facebook post last July 27. In the post, we learned that they pair crossed paths in a pizza store. Carlo immediately recognized him and decided to stay with him until he has been attended to by barangay medical health workers.

“Carlo, actually nabangga ko pa 'yung motor mo kasi hilong hilo ako kasi 13 araw na akong hindi kumakain. Hindi mo ako iniwanan. Bihira 'yung ganoon kaya maraming-maraming salamat sa 'yo. Tinatanaw kong utang na loob 'yun,” the former actor said during the interview.

John then revealed that he is actually suffering from liver cirrhosis.

“[Meron akong] liver cirrhosis. Sugat-sugat ang aking atay at may tubig na ang aking tiyan. Kailangan matanggal 'yung tubig na 'yun,” he said.

 

The actor then took the opportunity to ask for help.

“Ako po ay nahihiya pero kakapalan ko na po ang mukha ko. Bawat tao naman po ay dumadaan sa ganitong sitwasyon. Sana po kung hindi naman kalabisan sa inyo, pakitulungan naman po ako. Nagpapakumbaba po ako ng labis labis. Gusto ko lang po talagang makapaghanapbuhay,” he said.

“Itong nalalabi kong buhay po, igugugol ko na lang po sa paglilingkod sa Diyos at sa paghahanapbuhay,” he added.

 

One of the actor's former colleagues, actress Nadia Montenegro immediately started an online fundraiser to support John.

"With the help of Nanay Aster A. Amoyo and Chuckie Dreyfus, we have created a 'Gava Gives Assistance Account' for John and are now waiting for APPROVAL for the account where in anyone who wants to help can send it through there. I talked to him this morning but can't hardly understand his words. I will be seeing him later together with a doctor friend that will take all the tests brother John needs urgently," she wrote.
