Earlier, the veteran theater and film actor asked for prayers after doctors found a potentially life-threatening tumor in his pancreas
“Given my history of clinical depression and anxiety attacks coupled with a potentially life-threatening growth in my pancreas, it feels like it’s about time to call for support from FB Prayer Warriors,” he expressed.
“Last month, after a series of lab tests (including an ultrasound and CT Scan), my medical specialist friends at the UST hospital, a gastroenterologist and an oncologist, shared their findings: (in layman’s terms) my pancreas is swollen because of a tumor, possibly malignant, growing in the head of the pancreas. As it grows it begins to press on the bile duct and the pancreatic duct and with increasing pressure, the ducts eventually get pinched off,” he added.

While award winning novelist Lualhati Bautista expressed, “Love you, Bernie Bernardo Bernardo. Rest in peace now, my friend.”
