Jam Sebastian, of YouTube sensation Jamich, wants to give up cancer fight

Jam Sebastian, the fiancé of Michelle Liggayu, has been struggling with lung cancer for a year now. Mich posted this photo on Instagram with the caption: "Ngayon na lang kami nakapag picture ulit. Medyo okay kasi mood niya that time."


It has been a year since Jam Sebastian, one-half of YouTube sensation Jamich, was diagnosed with lung cancer.

Jam Sebastian and Michelle Liggayu—more popularly known as Jamich—earned a following for their viral videos about love and relationships.

In March last year, the couple opened up about Jam's battle with lung cancer.

Recently, Jam told his family that he wants to give up the fight against cancer.

"Dapat two weeks ago pa yung chemotherapy niya," disclosed Jam's mother, Maricar, in an interview aired on Startalk, yesterday, January 31.

"Sabi niya, gusto niya magpalakas muna bago siya magpa-treat.

"Until now, walang treatment na ginagawa sa kanya... kahit BP [blood pressure reading] o kahit vital signs o dextrose."

According to Jam's older brother, Yexel Sebastian, even the air from an airconditioner is too painful for the patient.

The pain has become excruciating for Jam, he sent a message to his family asking them to end his suffering.

“Nag-send siya ng text sa amin, sabi niya na i-consider yung mercy killing kasi nahirapan na raw siya," revealed Yexel.

"Meron palang ganitong klase ng buhay na hindi mo alam kung anong dasal ang gagawin mo sa panahon na ito."

Jam's mother was in tears as she recalled telling her son to continue fighting for his life.

"Noong nabasa ko yun, [the text message], umiyak ako.

"Sabi ko, ‘Anak, lahat ng gusto mo, dati hihingiin mo at ibibigay ko. Pero this time, hindi. Hindi ko ‘to ibibigay. Hindi tayo susuko.'

"Lagi niyang sinasabi, 'Ma, pagod na pagod na ko.'

"Gusto na niya manahimik. Gusto na niya magpahinga.

"As a mother, hindi mo naman puwede ibigay sa kanya...

"Sabi ko sa kanya, 'Anak, huwag tayo susuko. Laban lang tayo.'

"Ang Diyos, hindi napapagod sa pagbigay sa 'yo ng buhay," she said.

And when it came to Jam and Mich's wedding plans, Maricar was far from optimistic.

"Sa ngayon, parang mahirap mangyari kasi siyempre gusto ng anak ko, ikakasal siya, yung maayos yung sarili niya.

"At this time, hindi nga siya makatayo, e."

Last January 30, Mich posted a photo with Jam with the caption: "Ngayon na lang kami nakapag picture ulit. Medyo okay kasi mood niya that time. Baka umuwi na siya bago matapos yung week. Pero di pa rin siya nakakapag chemo kasi kailangan pa magpa lakas kahit konti. Thanks for the love and prayers everyone! God loves you."
