When a food delivery rider saw former action star John Regala asking for help from strangers in Pasay City, he sought local barangay officials from the area who came to help aid the ailing actor who was last seen onscreen during his stint on FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. John had previously suffered a suspected heart attack or stroke in public in front of a supermarket in 2017. The rider posted about the actor’s situation online and it quickly went viral.

Last July 29, the veteran actor confirmed he is now living alone and currently suffering from liver cirrhosis. In an interview with local radio station DZRM, he shared, ”Medyo malala na ang aking liver cirrhosis pero hindi naman ako nainom ng alak ever since. Di ko alam baka sa fatty foods ko nakuha siguro. Tapos bukod dun, may tubig nga ako sa tiyan, kailangan butasin ang aking tiyan para mailabas yung tubig.”

On the same day, Nadia Montenegro shared an update on her Instagram account about an account they had set up for John along with other concerned showbiz personalities. She wrote, “UPDATE ON BROTHER John Regala. With the help of Nanay Aster A. Amoyo and Chuckie Dreyfus we have created a ‘Gava Gives Assistance Account; for John and are now waiting for APPROVAL for the account where in anyone who wants to help can send it through there. I talked to him this morning but [can] hardly understand his words. I will be seeing him later together with a doctor friend that will take all tests brother John needs urgently.” 

Nadia said the fund was set up to help John resume dialysis treatment which he had to stop due to lack of funds. She stressed that there is an urgent need for his health assistance which aside from dialysis includes a wheelchair and a budget for his daily food and medical needs. “To those who want to send donations and help of any kind to John pls send pm me. God bless you all! Thank you!  ️  We love you Brother John! #HelpJohnRegala” she wrote.
