Alfred Vargas Talked About His Mom's Stage 3 Uterine CancerAlfred Vargas revealed that his mother, Ching Vargas, has stage three uterine cancer. He said though that his mother is showing signs of improvements, so he is hoping that she will still be able to survive the illness.
Vargas told PEP.PH that his mother was responding well to chemotherapy.
“Siyempre, hindi naman tayo nagkakampante, kaya patuloy lang ang radiation treatment niya,” the actor-politician told PEP.PH.
Vargas was not always vocal about his mother's illness, but he said that he wanted to let the public know about the situation now and ask for their prayers.
He said that his mother has shown great strength through the whole ordeal.
“I think malalampasan nya ‘to. Malakas ang mom ko, e. She’s the strongest woman I’ve ever known in my entire life," he said.
Vargas shared that his mom's illness has brought the family closer together. He said that him and his siblings are more concerned about the family than before.
He added that it was the only good thing that came out of his mother's illness.
Vargas revealed that he always makes sure that he has time for his mother. Although he is very busy in his district, he makes it a point to visit her as often as possible.
This is also the reason why Vargas chose to leave showbiz temporarily.
“Dumating sa point na kailangan ko mamili—either ituloy ko yung mga projects or spend more time with my mom. Ako naman, bilang anak, mas pinili ko na lang mas marami yung oras ko sa mother ko kesa sa mga projects," he told PEP.PH.
Vargas said that he is sure that he will be able to catch up with the project he has lost once his mom regained her strength.
