Kris Aquino confirmed that her illness is already severe enough to threaten her life.
On May 15, the TV host shared a lengthy video explaining her current condition and treatment plans in her Instagram post.
“Yung chismis na na-confine ako, na nasa ICU, na nag-aagaw buhay, masyado kayong advance.
“Para klaro ang lahat and dahil gusto niyong patayin na ako – well, I am not yet dead. I am going to fight to stay alive,” she said in the video.
In her post, she said that she has three confirmed autoimmune conditions: chronic spontaneous urticaria, autoimmune thyroiditis, and Churg-Strauss Syndrome.
“Pasensya na, hindi po ako sigurado if my video made sense. Mula end of April, we found out life threatening na yung illness ko.
“I’ve always been proud of my honesty & courage. Ginusto ko na maka lipad sana ng tahimik pero utang ko po sa mga nag darasal na gumanda ang aking kalusugan ang mag THANK YOU & to tell the TRUTH.
“Kayo na lang please ang mag research- 3 ang confirmed autoimmune conditions ko: chronic spontaneous urticaria, autoimmune thyroiditis, and definitively confirmed after my 3rd skin biopsy was read by a pathologist here & in the 🇺🇸- meron po akong vasculitis, to be very specific – late stage 3 of Churg Strauss Syndrome now also known as EGPA.”

Kris then explained that her team of doctors, both in the Philippines and abroad, are worried because there is a risk of organ damage in her heart and lungs.
Kris then asked the people to spare her sons from bashing and criticisms online to end her post.
“Not for my sake, pero for my 2 sons, 1 in the autism spectrum & 1 only 15- kung balak nyo pong mambastos or mag comment ng masakit o masama, sa mga sarili nyo na lang pong IG, FB, or chat group sana gawin.
“Hindi nyo po ako kailangan gustuhin para magpakatao… please don’t punish kuya & bimb for being my sons. Hindi po masama ang maglakas ng loob at magsabi ng sobrang bigat na katotohanan.”
Accordingly, Kris is set to leave the country on Thursday, May 19, to seek treatment abroad.
