It has been about three years since the last time we saw Dick Israel.
The 57-year-old actor became famous for portraying mostly villain roles in more than 220 movies, and became part of 22 television shows.
In 2010, he suffered from a stroke, which left half of his body paralyzed, and affected his speech.
Lorna Tolentino, Christopher de Leon, John Lloyd Cruz, Bea Alonzo, Karylle, to name a few, gave him financial support then.
But not much can be heard about him after he was cast in ER Ejercito's Boy Golden, which became an entry to the 2013 Metro Manila Film Festival.
Yesterday, July 3, a certain Sidemiod Francisco Datanam posted an update about Dick's condition.
According to him, he is slowly recovering from a fire incident, and needs help.
