Kyle Echarri has sought the prayers of his friends, fans, and followers after his younger sister Bella was diagnosed with a brain tumor.
The “Lyric and Beat” star opened up about his baby sister’s diagnosis in an Instagram post uploaded today, June 22.
Kyle shared that he was informed of Bella’s condition just yesterday, June 21, as his sister chose to keep it a secret first because she didn’t want to burden the singer-actor.
“My baby sister Bella has been my world since the day she was born. Just yesterday I was told by my family that my little girl was diagnosed with a brain tumor on May 2nd and she wanted to hide it from me because she said she didn’t want me to get stressed while I was working. To say it hurts is an understatement,” he wrote in the caption.
The “Pinoy Big Brother: Kumunity Season 10” alum then called on everyone’s help by asking for prayers of healing for his sister.
“I love this girl 10x more than I love myself. She has finished her radiation treatment and now I’m asking for everyone’s prayers for my baby sister,” he added.
Kyle continued to speak of Bella, “She’s the most beautiful, smart, and amazing little kid that I will love forever. We have all high hopes and I’m hoping everyone can help pray for complete healing for my little girl.”
In the comment section, celebrities including Marjorie Barretto, Ria Atayde, Sylvia Sanchez, Jed Madela, Maymay Entrata, Darren Espanto, AC Bonifacio, Cassy Legaspi, Zephanie, Angelina Cruz, and Luke Conde extended their support to Kyle and prayers for Bella.
On the same day as Kyle’s post, Bella took to her own Instagram account to pen a heartfelt birthday tribute for the actor who turned 19 last June 20.
“Happy Birthday, KAYULLL!!! I know I’m really late but happy birthday to the best brother everrrrrr. I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything. I’m so proud of you and the man you’ve become. I hope you continue to follow your dreams and passions. I LOVE YOU so much and I’m gonna miss you so much again. I wish you the best. Happy Birthday!” she dedicated the post to Kyle.
