In a lengthy Instagram post on October 1, 2018, Philippine Queen of All Media Kris Aquino (age 47), assured her followers that she does not have a tumor.
Kris Aquino categorically stated : “all tests for any tumor markers were negative.”
Currently in Singapore, Kris is scheduled to see a specialist for three (3) areas of her health that “needed to be immediately addressed”, so she could regain her health.
Kris said that like her mother, the late Philippine ex-President Corazon Aquino, she will brave everything when it comes to her health because she loves her children and will fight for them unconditionally.
She asked for prayers not for herself but for her sons, James Carlos “Bimby” Aquino Yap, Jr. and Joshua “Josh” Aquino Salvador, because she does not want them to get hurt, taken advantage of, or suffer.

I’ve shared my life by courageously sharing my trials without hiding the painful truths. And I decided that this chapter will be no different.
Bimb and I read through several medical terms I googled so he’d understand what may lie ahead. These are from medical tests we’ve treated since September 2015 but unfortunately some tests done in the Philippines last week had results no longer as good as those from San Francisco in March 2018. My 11 year old needed the assurance that his mama would fight bravely because my tests start tomorrow.
We flew to Singapore because I know how many Filipinos work in the medical field here and I wanted to lessen my family’s burden by choosing transparency.
Let me be categorical: all tests for any tumor markers were negative. Because of my very evident weight loss I had tests done to specifically answer that fear.
Atty. Fortun’s statement about my treatment with prescription medication for hypertension, severe allergies, and migraine remains true. But we flew to Singapore to see one specialist for 3 areas of my health that needed to be immediately addressed with appropriate treatment for me to have the best chance to regain my health.
The words our Mom said near the end of her life are vividly recalled in my mind “I fought for my life because I knew you weren’t ready.”
Our mother braved the surgeries, treatments, and extreme physical pain of terminal cancer because she loved us so much that she wanted to give us what our dad’s assassination stole from us- enough time to prepare and accept God’s will.
I am my mother’s daughter because I strive to be the mother I had growing up – someone who loved and fought for her children unconditionally.
I don’t dare ask you to pray for me- I now completely surrender to God’s merciful care.
Pero kakapalan ko po ang mukha ko at makikiusap: please pray for my 2 sons, Josh and Bimb…kahit sinong magulang maiintindihan po ako, gagawin natin ang lahat wag lang masaktan, ma-agrabyado, o mahirapan ang mga pinakamamahal nating mga anak. Isasakripisyo natin ang lahat masiguradong okay sila. That’s what happens when you become a parent, you wholeheartedly surrender being number 1.
On September 22, 2018, Kris has revealed on social media about financial problems she has been facing in her company, the Kris Cojuangco Aquino Productions (KCAP).
Kris Aquino said that the person whom she trusted to manage her company and to negotiate her endorsements, had financially abused and betrayed her. The problem has caused her weight to drop under 54 kilos.
The unfortunate matter is now in the hands of her legal team, Atty. Florin Hilbay and Atty. Sig Fortun.
