YouTube star Emman Nimedez revealed in his latest vlog entry he is battling acute myeloid leukemia.
Nimedez, who has over 1.3 million subscribers on his channel, said he felt he had a responsibility to share the news to his viewers.
“Ito na siguro yung pinaka-malaking hamon na binigay sakin ng nasa itaas. Mahaba-habang pakikipagtalo sa sarili bago ko tuluyang mai-post 'tong video na to. Pero sa napagtanto ko, kailangan niyo rin talaga 'to malaman,” he wrote in the description box of the video.
“Masyado nang malayo yung pinagsamahan natin para hindi ko kayo isama sa byahe na ito. Medyo malubak lang at matarik kumpara sa mga naunang byahe. Pero kapit lang. Makakatawid tayo,” he said.
At first, he thought the fever he suffered from was due to COVID-19, but later turned out to be due to cancer.
“So 'yun hinanap nila at na-track nga nila na nasa bone marrow siya. So noong kinuhanan ng samples 'yung bone marrow ko, ayun lumabas kahapon sa results na mayroon akong acute myeloid leukemia. Mayroon akong cancer," he shared.
Below is the full vlog of Emman, which is currently the number one trending entry on the video-sharing site with almost 3 million views in 12 hours:
James is everywhere. He is so busy, but he never fails to make time with friends. He loves all types of music. He loves food. He loves to travel too, if time permits. James is everywhere and what he sees is what you get.
