After Claudine Barretto updated her Instagram followers that she’s about to get a surgery, her nephew Cholo Barretto shared with ABS-CBN News the reason why Claudine is getting operated in her lower left leg.
He explained that Claudine’s blood is ‘prone to infection.’
“Her white blood cells are very high & her red blood cells are extremely low. Which is why she is vulnerable and prone to infection.”
Cholo also thanked the public for giving them privacy and is asking for prayers.
“We would like to thank everyone for respecting our family's privacy and for the love, most especially to her Claudinians and Palanggas.
We would appreciate your continued prayers for her full recovery. Maraming salamat po.”
The Optimum Star has been frequenting the hospital because of her illness.
