IPINAGLULUKSA ng aktres at StarStruck council na si Heart Evangelista-Escudero ang pagpanaw ng kanyang isang kaibigan dahil sa sakit na Thalassemia.
Ang sakit na Thalassemia, ayon sa Wikipedia ay “inherited blood disorders characterized by abnormal hemoglobin production. Symptoms depend on the type and can vary from none to severe. Often there is mild to severe anemia (low red blood cells). Anemia can result in feeling tired and pale skin. There may also be bone problems, an enlarged spleen, yellowish skin, and dark urine. Slow growth may occur in children.”
Robert ang pangalan ng kaibigan na ito ni Heart na tinuring na niya, hindi lang bilang kaibigan kundi isang kapatid na rin.
Malaki nga raw ang nabago sa buhay ni Heart noong makilala niya si Robert, kaya sobrang nalungkot si Heart nang mamaalam na ito.
Sa kanyang Instagram noong nakaraang June 28, pinost ng Kapuso actress ang kanyang tribute sa pumanaw na kaibigan na una niyang nakilala noong 2013 pa…
“Remembering a special friend who was gone too soon, today. 🙏🏻 This photo was taken in 2013 with my dear friend, Robert. It was such a blessing to have met an angel like you and becoming like a big sister to you even just for a few years. I just wanted to thank you and let you know that you have opened my eyes and taught me so many things. Up to this day, you continue to inspire me to do more.
“I also just want to say sorry that I wasn’t able to do more for you at that time (including giving you the TV you wanted before your passing). But I hope you know that meeting you was truly life-changing for me and made me realize so many things. It pains me that you had to undergo so much pain and suffering as a Thalassemia patient, but it gives me peace knowing that you’re in a better place now. ❤ Know that I will strive to raise awareness about your illness in hopes that it could help save someone’s life. “Thank you, Robert. Your life truly touched mine. 💖 Say hello to the angels up there for me and I’m sure you’re having the best time. 😇“
