‘Happy Battle’ ni Francis Magalona, inalala ni Pia

Ngayon mismong Ash Wednesday ang 10th death anniversary ni Francis Magalona.

Sa kanyang Instagram post, ikinuwento ni Pia ang mga nangyari nang ihatid sa kanila ng doktor ang balita na may leukemia si Francis M.

Ani Pia, August 8, 2008 nang ma-diagnose si Kiko na may acute myelogenous leukemia.

“On 08/08/08, Francis Magalona was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). I remember distinctly that we were both lying in his hospital bed, watching the opening ceremony of the Olympics, when a doctor came by and asked to speak to me in the hallway. She carefully broke the news, and my only reaction was ok… so what’s the method of treatment, and how long is he going to be confined? I even had a smile on my face, because I was just glad to know they had found out why he was having daily fever and was lightheaded. The doctor then said the dreaded words: it’s cancer. Oh… That was pretty bad news,” panimula ni Pia.

Matapos niyang malaman ay ipinaalam din nila ito kay Kiko at isa-isa rin niyang tinawagan ang kanilang mga anak para sabihin ang masamang balita at kada kuwento niya sa mga anak ay siya ring iyak niya.

“After that, I called my children one at a time, from eldest to youngest. The most difficult was telling the three youngest who still lived at home at the time, whom I told face to face. They were only 14, almost-9 and almost-8. I cried with them with each and every revelation, answering the same questions eight times over,” dagdag pa ni Pia.

Mahigit pitong buwan din umanong binigyan ng pagkakataong mabuhay ang kanyang mister kaya forever silang magpapasalamat sa mga pamilya, kaibigan, kapwa artista at mga malalapit sa kanila na sumuporta both financially at spiritually sa tinawag nilang “Happy Battle” ni Francis M.

Sa pamamagitan din umano ng mga kanta ni Kiko ay nananatili ang legacy ng Master Rapper.

‪Today is Ash Wednesday. We also commemorate the 10th death anniversary of FrancisM. ❤️ On 08/08/08, Francis Magalona was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). I remember distinctly that we were both lying in his hospital bed, watching the opening ceremony of the Olympics, when a doctor came by and asked to speak to me in the hallway. She carefully broke the news, and my only reaction was ok… so what’s the method of treatment, and how long is he going to be confined? I even had a smile on my face, because I was just glad to know they had found out why he was having daily fever and was lightheaded. The doctor then said the dreaded words: it’s cancer. Oh… That was pretty bad news. Next thing, we both went into the room to tell him about it. After that, I called my children one at a time, from eldest to youngest. The most difficult was telling the three youngest who still lived at home at the time, whom I told face to face. They were only 14, almost-9 and almost-8. I cried with them with each and every revelation, answering the same questions eight times over. Francis lived a total of 7 months more after that, and it was a whirlwind of confinements and discharges and treatments and test, after test, after test. Faith is really all we ever had, and still have for those he left behind. Our family will forever be grateful to family, friends, co-artists, companies and the Filipino people who supported us both financially and in spirit throughout the journey we called his Happy Battle, and even afterward. ?? Through his recordings, his legacy lives on. Now, more than ever, say a prayer and listen to FrancisM. Peace. ??❤️‬
