ABS-CBN broadcaster Doris Bigornia returns to work on Monday, March 5, after heart surgery.
Last February, Bigornia suffered a heart attack. As a result, she was rushed to the hospital and was put in the intensive care unit.
The tragedy shocked her fellow journalists as the “Mutya ng Masa” is in need to go an open-heart surgery.
Months after the incident, Bigornia appeared on her TeleRadyo show, “SRO”, weeks after her successful heart surgery.
Bigornia, known as a very strong woman, shared on her show that she underwent triple heart bypass surgery. She also needs to undergo regular dialysis due to kidney failure.
Nevertheless, she emerged on her show, ready to work.
On Twitter, her fellow journalists have expressed their relief as the Mutya ng Masa is alive and well.
Bigornia’s co-host, Alvin Elchico, teased their supporters as he hinted that there will be a special guest whom viewers missed. And that is none other than Mutya ng Masa herself in Monday’s episode of SRO.
Sali kayo sa SRO, sa DZMM Teleradyo after TVPatrol.
Kasama ang Hiyas ng Batangas @sherieanntorres & may sisilip na "guest" na miss nyo na!😜
