When former President Corazon C. Aquino was diagnosed of colon cancer it was already on stage four. Before this, she suffered from high blood pressure, cough, lost her appetite and weight. March 2008 when her family made the public announcement of her real health condition. They requested the public to respect their privacy and asked prayers for her recovery. May 3, 2008 when he made her public appearance at the Pink Sisters' Convent in Quezon City at a mass held on her behalf. On October 2008, Cory was experiencing some side effects of the chemotherapy so she failed to witness the unveiling of the historical marker "Jose C. Cojuangco" at their ancestral house in Malolos, Bulacan.
Recently (May 4, 2009) a team of doctors led by French surgeon Joel Leroy performed surgery (laparoscopic colectomy) on her to remove parts of her colon. After three days she was discharged from Makati Medical Center, but she was confined again last June 24 due to poor appetite. Until now she is still struggling in pain and Kris Aquino was asking for our prayers that the pain would be lessened. With the Divine intervention, I know one of these days her pain and agony will disappear. Let us offer her prayers.
