26 Mar – Former Filipino TV personality Jaymee Joaquin recently admitted that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer anew.
The former "Shake, Rattle and Roll 9" actress took to social media to share the news, saying, "I don't want to disclose specific info right now but one thing's for sure... the recurrence was detected super early and medical team are still doing more tests to make sure all bases are covered."
She also expressed hope that people will not pity her, as she plans to fight her condition and win again like she did before, saying that it is highly treatable.
"For now, all I ask is your continuous virtual support, healing prayers, well wishes and hopeful outlook as I embark on this uncertain yet awakening journey. I've also decided to lie low on social media for now because I choose to cope with everything in an organic way by truly living and appreciating life as it unfolds right before my very eyes and surround myself physically with people who love and care for me," she wrote.
"This is [going to] be an epic battle. And with God's grace, my medical team, my loved ones and your support, I'm a WIN the second time around. Let's keep the faith and hope for the best."
Joaquin was first diagnosed with early stage of breast cancer in late 2016 and had been on remission since June 2017 prior to the latest development.
