Christopher de Leon’s son in ICU due to testicular cancer

The son of veteran actors Christopher de Leon and Sandy Andolong is suffering from testicular cancer as it was confirmed by Ali Sotto. Prayers are asked to everyone for their cancer-stricken son Miguel, whom they visited in San Francisco a few days ago.

The announcement was made the couple’s friend, Ali Sotto through her radio program on August 7. Ali adds, that the family is asking for prayers for seriously ill son.

Miguel is confined at an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in a hospital which she did not disclose.

Testicular cancer occurs in the testicles (testes). Although testicular cancer is rare, it is highly treatable, even when cancer has spread beyond the testicle

This recent adversity our family had to face made our faith in our good & merciful GOD extremely stronger, our love for each other immensely deeper. It was one of the greatest challenge God allowed us to face as parents & as a tight family unit. And we wholeheartedly accepted God’s test, hard as it may be, & placed our full & complete trust in Him! Our faith never wavered or waned. Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Our son, Miguel’s testecular germ cell cancer w/c metastasized in his right lung is curable thru a series of chemotherapy : )) He had his 1st chemo early this evening. He is still slightly sedated often w/c makes it hard to for us to find the right timing to show him that we are beside him & to talk to him. But on the second day of our visit, he was a little lucid & the minute he heard my voice he reached for my hand to squeeze & I saw the most beautiful smile I’ve ever seen in him. When it was my husband’s turn he was just so overwhelmed to see his tatay who kept kissing him & broke into tears w/ no sound but w/ so much relief & love not only on his part but ours as well. I would like to thank our families, our very close friends, co-workers who prayed for us, showed us so much love & support & more importantly helped us get through this trying time. Thank you too to all the people who truly cared & prayed for our son. May our loving God bless you all! Thank you & God be w/ us always! Good night : ))
