Married couple Randy and Marilou Santiago has released an official statement regarding the death of their son Ryan Santiago, who died on August 13 at the age of 24.
KAMI learned about their statement from PEP.ph.
The grieving couple revealed the medical history of their beloved son in their official statement.
"The whole Santiago family is deeply saddened to pass on the news that our son, brother and nephew Ryan Leonardo Coronel Santiago has met our Lord and Creator at 2:56 pm on August 13, 2017. We find comfort in knowing that he is no longer in pain.
"He was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2013 and suffered from Demyelinating Disease (damage of the protective covering of the nerves of the brain).
"These led to a condition called Hydrocephalus. He underwent a major brain surgery to insert shunts in order to drain the fluid out.
"Given that a shunt is a foreign object, it could cause infections, which the doctors tried to address through medications.
"His health started to deteriorate because of loss of appetite as a result of the medications.
"Ryan was born on November 9, 1992 to Randy and Marilou Santiago.
"He was a true-blooded Lasallian having gone to school at La Salle Green Hills from grade school to high school before going to college at College of St. Benilde.
"He is survived by his parents, Randy and Marilou, and his brothers, Raphael and Raiko Santiago.
"Even at a young age, his passion for the creative arts was evident just like his uncles and grandparents. He had a great fashion style, considered to be an influencer and was a blogger.
"Ryan’s family and friends will sorely miss his infectious smile, humor, vibrant personality, humble demeanor and caring ways."
KAMI is hoping that Randy and Marilou will be comforted in this time of grieving!
