Actor and celebrity vlogger Chuckie Dreyfus has taken to Facebook to request for more prayers for his former onscreen partner, Isabel Granada.
“I myself woke up to this very terrible news. I have spoken to her husband and am currently keeping tabs on her status,” Chuckie wrote on his Facebook status this morning, Wednesday, October 25.
He added, “I would just like to ask everyone for prayers for Isa's quick recovery and restoration.
“Just a quick prayer. Anywhere you may be.
“Spare a minute of your time or perhaps just a couple of seconds.”
According to Isabel's friend, Bianca Lapus, the 41-year-old actress was rushed to a hospital in Doha, Qatar, after collapsing on Tuesday, October 24.
She reportedly suffered cardiac arrest caused by aneurysm and is in a coma.
On his Facebook post, Chuckie praises Isabel, who has been his friend since their long stint in That's Entertainment, the defunct youth-oriented program of GMA Network which aired from 1986 to 1996.
He wrote, “Isa is a really wonderful person. Very joyful, loving and truly passionate in everything she does.
“Walang masamang tinapay kahit kanino. Pala-bungisngis.
“She is also the person I've spent more than half of my life with in and out of showbiz.
“That's why it truly pains me all the more to know that this has happened to a person such as her.”
Chuckie also sent out a message for Isabel, “Isa, please be strong.
“You've always been a fighter.
"You're one of the strongest women I know, mentally, spiritually and emotionally.
“Sending you a deluge of prayers and ALL my love.”
Chuckie added sad-faced and broken-heart emojis to his post to express how he is feeling.
Isabel and Chuckie were reunited in GMA-7's reality show, Survivor Philippines Celebrity Doubles Showdown, in 2011.
