Marlo Mortel asks for prayers as mother’s cancer fight worsens


MANILA — Faced with unforgiving odds, Marlo Mortel isn’t losing hope. 

On Instagram on Monday, the television host revealed that a pair of grueling surgeries his cancer-stricken mother had to go through has not had the effect his family had hoped for. 

In his moving post, Mortel asked for prayers as he shared that latest tests showed that his mother’s stage three breast cancer had grown. 

“I am quiet when it comes to my family, but these past few months has been really hard for us,” he said, adding that it was back in 2014 when his mother, Merlie Pamintuan, was first diagnosed with the terminal illness. 

He continued: “Last December, she had to do a lung operation and recently she went through an open heart surgery because there’s a huge cyst that needs to be removed or else her heart will fail.” 

And despite both operations being successful, Mortel went on to share the bad news that his mother’s cancer is now at stage four –the most advanced stage. 

“My mom is still recovering from the surgeries and has no voice but she needs to face another set of treatments again so Lord please give her strength,” he said. 

Sharing a photo of him and his father rallying at his mother’s bedside, he said: “Me and daddy will fight with you all the way. I’ll keep working extra hard for us and we will get through this okay? Nothing is impossible with Jesus. I love you so much!” 

It was back in 2015 when Mortel first opened up about his mother’s battle, saying that he will do everything to provide for his family, especially for his mother’s medical needs.
