Joey Albert remains positive despite ongoing battle with colon cancer

OPM singer Joey Albert on her battle against colon cancer: “I do try to keep positive, because I feel it’s really the best medicine.”


“Time is the most important thing in life, not money, not career… nothing, time talaga.”

Ito ang pahayag ng OPM icon na si Joey Albert kaugnay ng muli niyang pakikipaglaban sa colon cancer.

Ito ang ikatlong pagkakataong na-diagnose na may cancer si Joey.

Matatandaang noong 1995 ay matagumpay nang nalabanan ni Joey ang cervical cancer.

Ngunit noong 2003 ay na-diagnose naman siyang may colon cancer.

Gumaling siya matapos ang isang matagumpay na operasyon noong Hulyo 2013.

Pero noong January 2015 ay nag-recur o bumalik ang kanyang colon cancer, at muling inoperahan noong Marso.

Pahayag ni Joey tungkol sa kanyang panibagong pagsubok, “Scared and disappointed because I really thought that the last time was the last na.

“And I do get scared still if you really think about the longevity of your life here, the realization you’re not as strong as you think you are.

"But I do try to keep positive, because I feel it’s really the best medicine.

“I think if I lend myself to all this fear, I’ll slip.”

Matapang namang ibinabahagi ni Joey ang pagsailalim niya ng gamutan laban sa kanser sa pamamagitan ng kanyang Facebook account.

Aniya, ito ay paraan upang humingi siya ng dasal at upang ibahagi ang kanyang karanasan sa mga taong may parehong pinagdadaanan.

“I share my battle, my journey with people, first of all, I need prayers and I’m not gonna pretend I don’t need help, because I do.

“And the other thing also, I feel that if I share my journey, there might be other people going through the same thing and I might be able to inspire, para naman may purpose ang pagkasakit ko,” saad ng singer.

Ilan sa mga pinasikat na awitin ni Joey ay ang mga sumusunod: "Tell Me", "A Million Miles Away", "Points of Views" (duet with Pops Fernandez), "Yakapin Mo Ako", at "Ikaw Lang Ang Mamahalin."
