- Kris Aquino has an autoimmune disease.

- She disclosed Bimby offered her his own kidney.
Kris Aquino announced on Instagram that she has an autoimmune disease. She pointed out that she had lost fifteen pounds in one month reminding her what her mother, Cory Aquino, went through.
She felt scared that it may be a cancer diagnosis but it was discovered that what she has is an autoimmune disease.
Kris wrote how international celebrities such as Selena Gomez, Gigi Hadid and Wendy Williams raised awareness for autoimmune disease and chronic pain. Bimby who knew of Selena’s struggles with Lupus, begged Kris not to leave and even offered his own kidney.
“You prayed for us regardless of not knowing me personally. i waited for my Singaporean doctor to send my final diagnosis. Now i’m ready to open my heart… I’m sharing our story for you to understand THE PAIN MY FAMILY ENDURED… Ang hirap madiskubreng may malaking perang pinaghirapan kitain na ginastos ng walang pahintulot para sa luho ng taong pinagkatiwalaan mo- kahit na milyones na ang kinita nya galing sa yo.”
“Bumagsak po ang katawan ko, in 1 month i lost 15 pounds. i was SCARED, our Mom had unexplained weight loss before her cancer diagnosis. That’s why i had my series of blood tests. This is our TRUTH. My initial diagnosis indicated an autoimmune disease. Selena Gomez, Gigi Hadid, and Wendy Williams all raised my awareness. To be specific, we were afraid it was lupus. Kuya was anxious & confused. Bimb knew Selena’s journey. It was heartbreaking to see my 11 year old crying inconsolable tears and pleading, “please don’t leave me mama.” Bimb even offered me his kidney.”
Kris revealed that she can work hard for money. An extension for life, however, is hard to get. She then revealed that she has Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria which is an autoimmune disease. She listed down what she needs for her daily life to remain physically healthy.
“Ang pera magsipag ako, kikitain ulit. PERO HINDI PO MABIBILI ANG EXTENSION SA BUHAY. Kaya nagmadali kaming lumipad ng Singapore for me to get the most thorough medical evaluation. To be specific i now know i have Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria, and yes, mine is an autoimmune disease. I am now, and for the rest of my existence will be, on high dosage antihistamines and having the EpiPen will always be crucial. Severe allergies are life threatening because of anaphylactic shock. I disclosed that i started maintenance medication to control my hypertension in 2015; i also have ongoing treatment for severe migraines.”
Kris wanted to fight for her health just for her sons: Josh and Bimby.
“You know my life’s journey. Thank you for being with me through the tears and victories. I AM PROOF, LOVE MAKES US STRONG. Because we know WHY WE ARE FIGHTING…for me it’s for my health because 2 people i love more than life itself still need me for at least 10 more years. My prayer is simple, to raise my youngest son to become a responsible adult who’ll care for his kuya, then God already blessed me more than i deserve. #laban (October 11, 1954, 64 years ago my mom & dad got married. Heaven timed i’d get my medical answers now for me to remember BEING BRAVE is part of my DNA.)🌈”
