Former “Pinoy Big Brother” housemate Kisses Delavin always seems to be in such a good mood that you would not think that she had been through a near-death experience.
KAMI learned the story about her frightening childhood illness from Rated K via ABS-CBN Entertainment.
The only child suffered from Encephalitis – an inflammation of the brain due to viral infection – when she was just six years old.
For this reason, she fell into a comatose and was brought to a hospital.
“Yung ginawa ng parents ko, nag pa air lift pa sila nang two planes kasi super worried sila kasi sabi ng doctors na if siguro hindi matagalan ng 15 minutes na hindi ako madala sa reliable na hospital, wala na talaga,” she told Korina Sanchez on Rated K.
When Korina asked her about being given a second chance to live, Kisses had this to say:
“I have a mission in my life. Kaya lagi akong binubuhay. Kasi sabi niya ‘I should always fight.’ I was blessed enough so I think na my struggle is to share the blessing to other people.”
In a Philippine Star article by Boy Abunda, Kisses also talked about her terrifying experience.
“Parang 5% lang ‘yung chance na mabuhay, or kung mabuhay ka man, you will be gulay. Parang hindi na magpa-function properly… Pagdating namin sa Manila, sabi ng doctor kung mga in the span of 10 to 15 minutes, hindi ako nakarating, or maybe 5 minutes, maaaring wala na ako… No’ng nakarating kami, comatose agad ako. So sabi ng doctor, within 24 hours, kung hindi ako magising, hindi na talaga.
“Sobrang laking miracle pero no’ng nagising ako, wala akong maalala. Disoriented, parang may amnesia. That lasted for like two weeks, tapos ‘yung pinakamalaking miracle is sabi ng doctor, kasi pinresent niya ‘yung case ko sa buong hospital kasi first case na nag-survive ng 100%. Sabi niya, ‘This is your second life. So many chances na mabuhay ka ulit,’” Kisses revealed.
KAMI wants to remind you to never lose hope even if you are in a dire situation. Miracles do happen in real life!
