Kris Aquino recently revealed that her youngest son, Bimby, was instructed to keep mum on the extent of his mom’s health issues in fear of losing her endorsement contracts.
In her Instagram post last Tuesday, on Christmas Day, The Queen of All Media said that her child was told this by a someone who is no longer part of their family’s lives.
“It’s an unfair world when an 11-year-old feels he needs to be the protector and guardian of secrets for his mama. Someone no longer in our lives had told Bimb that if our endorsements knew the extent of his mama’s health worries, she’d lose her contracts.
“At that time, we had no definitive prognosis but I know many of you, my followers, are in the medical field and all pictures in the video I edited are from August to December 2018. It’s Christmas, I pray you’ll be kind,” wrote Kris.
While she initially wanted to keep out from discussing her current health condition, the I Love You, Hater star said that she did so in the hopes that her loved ones, especially her dear children, will be relieved of the burden of what should be her battle alone.
“Trust me when I say [that] thanks to my team of doctors, the bad days are fewer, but unfortunately this is a progressive illness,” continued Kris, who assured fans that all her organs are still in good condition for she was diagnosed early.
The mother of two said that, overtime, she has come to accept her health’s situation and just go with what her doctors advise her.
“My doctors have reassured me for as long as I am obedient about taking all my medication, religious about not exceeding my allowed work hourse, and choosing our shoot locations carefully, I can still look forward to a fulfilling life,” said Kris.
