  • AprilBoyReginoIn an interview with GMA’s Startalk, ‘90s Jukebox King April Boy Regino revealed that after surviving prostate cancer, he is now suffering from diabetes. April Boy said he almost went blind and he underwent surgery to be able to see again.
    “Pumutok ang ugat ng mata ko sa sobrang taas siguro ng blood sugar. Isang taon din akong nawalan ng paningin. Natakpan ng dugo ‘yung dalawang mata ko tapos ‘yun, nag pa-opera ako. Hindi totally malinaw na malinaw, Malabo pa rin pero kahit papaano may pag-asa ako balang araw lilinaw din yan,” he said.

     

    After facing tough challenges in his life, he has embraced God and realized that wealth is nothing if you don’t believe in God. He used to think that when he retired, he’ll just be relaxing and drinking alcohol but everything changed when his health deteriorated.

    “Isang pitik lang pala ng Diyos sa ‘yo, isang palo lang wala na lahat. Akala mo kasi sa una ikaw ang Diyos sa buhay mo e, pala may Diyos palang totoo, ang Panginoong Hesus Kristo lang.” he reflected.

    While recuperating, he did a Christian album entitled Jesus Tanging Hiling under GMA records. He thanked them for giving him a chance despite his illness and he’s hopeful that he’ll eventually recover. (J. Leary)
