After revealing last March that his father had been undergoing radiation treatment for prostate cancer, Ice Seguerra shared another update about his father Decoroso Seguerra’s condition in an Instagram post last August 4. The 36-year-old singer said the medical condition of his father has actually brought their family closer.

He wrote, “Siguro, if there's one thing na magandang binigay sa amin ang cancer ni Daddy; it brought us closer as a family. Kami kasi yung tipong pamilyang non confrontational. Lahat dinadaan sa biro. But like all families, there were unspoken things and old wounds that need to be mended.


“At first, sobrang awkward. Tipong hindi mo alam kung papaano ka magsisimula. Pero nung nag tuloy-tuloy na ang paguusap, the words started flowing. Yes, may iyakan nagkalabasan nang mga mga sama ng loob sa isa't isa. We all took turns, my dad, mama, and my brother. After that, pinatawad namin ang isa't isa at ang mga sarili namin.

“Of course, hindi doon natapos ang lahat. As with anything na matagal na hindi napagusapan, may mga nauungkat pa ring sama ng loob but it's easier to address it. We became more open, expressive, more understanding of each other's pain and journey. We hug each other more, give kisses spontaneously. We are happier.”

The former child star, who continues to remain positive about his father’s condition, also shared how despite the challenge their family is facing right now, they have chosen to look at the silver lining in the situation. He added, “It's amazing how the universe always gives us the opportunity to mend broken or strained relationships, you just have to be mindful and seize that opportunity when it presents itself to you.

“Compassion and love. Gratefulness and forgiveness. Freedom and happiness Nandiyan yan, araw-araw. Just be brave and grab that opportunity, while you still can.

“Have a great night. Love will always win.”

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Siguro, if there's one thing na magandang binigay sa amin ang cancer ni Daddy; it brought us closer as a family. Kami kasi yung tipong pamliyang non confrontational. Lahat dinadaan sa biro.
