Anthony Taberna, his wife, Rossel Taberna, were interviewed on the GMA program, “Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho.”
KAMI learned that they talked about the recent revelation that their 12-year-old daughter Zoey is battling leukemia.
According to Rossel, she feels proud that Zoey has finally accepted that she has leukemia after a year of feeling scared of her condition.
Rossel also added that Zoey felt depressed and cried hard when she finally learned about her diagnosis.
“Sabi niya, ‘I’m ready. I’m not afraid anymore.’ Nagulat na lang ako na pinost talaga niya yung pagri-razor nung hair niya.
“Marami na rin kaming episodes in the past na talagang umiiyak siya, nadi-depress siya kaya po we’re proud na na-accept niya na po yun," Rossel said.
Furthermore, the scariest experience of the family happened when Zoey got hospitalized and lost a lot of weight because she could not eat.
“Kasabay nung kasagsagan po ng COVID dito sa Pilipinas, halos isang buwan po kami nasa ospital. And dun niya po naranasan yung pinakamahirap.
“Na talaga pong buto’t balat na po siya, almost a month po siyang walang solid food. Nagkaroon po siya ng singaw from outside the mouth hanggang throat, so hindi po siya nakakakain, puro yelo lang po.
“Talagang hindi na po namin siya makikilala, sobrang itim niya po. Natakot po talaga kami nung time na yun,” Rossel shared.
Despite their terrible experiences, the Taberna family remains strong and hopeful that Zoey will fully recover soon.
Anthony Taberna, also known as Ka Tunying, is a well-known journalist and radio commentator in the Philippines. He is best known for his radio program Dos Por Dos and Umagang Kay Ganda.
In a previous report by KAMI, Anthony had no choice but to transfer to DZRH from DZMM due to the shutdown of ABS-CBN on television and radio. Bianca Gonzalez, Karen Davila and Amy Perez were among the celebrities who congratulated Anthony on his transfer to DZRH.
On a more light-hearted note, Anthony went viral months ago due to Amy Perez’s blooper on “Umagang Kay Ganda.” Amy apologized for photobombing news anchor Anthony Taberna during his interview segment.
