MANILA – Social media personality Emman Nimedez on Sunday revealed that he had acute myeloid leukemia.
Nimedez uploaded a 10-minute video on his YouTube channel, where he confesses his toughest battle yet. He also thanked everyone for their support.
In the video, Nimedez revealed that he was initially admitted to the hospital for a fever, which they thought was due to Covid-19.
“Siyempre noong una akala namin COVID siya, pero hindi eh. Iba ‘yong pinangagalingan noong lagnat.”
“So ‘yun hinanap nila at na-track nga nila na nasa bone marrow siya. So noong kinuhanan ng samples ‘yung bone marrow ko, ayun lumabas kahapon sa results na mayroon akong acute myeloid leukemia. Mayroon akong cancer,” Nimedez said.
He also took the opportunity on his video to unbox his Youtube Gold Play Button.
Nimedez, who started making videos on YouTube as early as 2011, became popular when his parody videos went viral on the internet. He currently has 1.37 million subscribers on YouTube.
