Actress Lorna Tolentino on Saturday admitted that her husband, action star Rudy Fernandez, is battling ampullary cancer.

Tolentino told Startalk co-hosts Lolit Solis and Butch Francisco that Fernandez is now undergoing a series of tests.

“Madalas kami sa ospital," she said, adding many of their friends already knew Rudy’s health condition.

Solis and Francisco said they noticed during Fernandez’ surprise birthday celebration, which was aired over Startalk, that the party has an emotional tone.

They said most of the guests wish for Rudy’s recovery to which the actor replied: “I ain’t gonna die yet."

“Alam naman ng lahat na me dinadaanan kami ngayon… alam nilang lahat na may sakit si Rudy ngayon," Lorna said.

The actress said what is important is that her husband is strong and able to bear his condition.

“Kung ano man yung pinagdadaanan namin nakakayanan niya and nalalabanan niya kung ano man yung sakit na pinagdadaanan niya," she said.

Lorna admitted there were times that they were down because of what they were going through “pero kailangan i-surpass mo yun."

She said she and their friends need to be strong for Rudy. - Amita Legaspi, GMANews.TV
