Veteran actor Nanding Josef broke the sad news on his Facebook account and confirmed that actor Spanky Manikan is diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and is asking for financial assistance.
“He has been hospitalized 4 times already for various complications which has drained family savings (Spanky's loving wife, who has been by his side all this time is fellow actor Susan Africa-Manikan),” he wrote.
“Though Spanky is slowly getting better, he needs 6 more cycles of chemotherapy. He is still confined in the hospital for pleural (lung) fluid drainage,” he added.
Nanding also added the details where to send help in his post.
