The 53-year-old music icon underwent heart surgery in May, during which doctors discovered that he has kidney cancer, he told ABS-CBN News' Korina Sanchez in a report aired on "TV Patrol" Friday.

"Gaano katagal pa? Kailan ba matatapos itong lahat?" a devastated Valenciano said when asked about of his reaction to the diagnosis.

Though he did sound more hopeful in a tweet after the report aired, assuring fans that he is "now okay" and told them not to worry.


The report is a preview of Sanchez's "Rated K" program, with the full interview scheduled to be aired Sunday.

The singer first worried fans when he revealed that he had to undergo emergency open heart surgery after his anterior descending artery was found to be blocked due to diabetes.

In the days following the successful operation in May, Valenciano was optimistic in his message to his fans, promising them that "one day soon I will give my all on that stage again."

    2. Hi 1:24. Sorry but that’s wrong. Dialysis is for kidney failure not cancer.

    1. Kapag kasi may diabetes tinitira nun lahat ng internal organs ng diabetic patient. Kaya nagkakakaroon ng komplikasyon. Pangkaraniwang tinitira ng diabetes yung Lungs, heart at kidney. Yung kay Gary nag-umpisa sa diabetes lahat ng mahihinang parte ng internal organs nya magkakakomplikasyon gawa ng diabetes. Kapag yung blood sugar nya e hindi stable yun yung mabilis makasira ng katawan.

    2. Diabetes does not directly cause cancer though. More on kidney failure ang complication nuon.

  20. If kidney cancer, it can be removed and go through chemo. You can still live with one kidney basta walang problema sa isa.

    2. Anon 1:47, no, I'm not but I used to work for Urology Dept. and seen patients going this route. If both kidneys, then kidney transplant might be an option.

    3. 1:47 kahit di doctor alam yan. Kung parehas kailangan ng transplant.

    4. I have an uncle who has 1 kidney ok naman siya, mabubuhay ka naman ng matagal. As long as you do the dialysis even at home.

    5. I work sa hospital where we do IL 2 treatment for renal (kidney) cancer. I've had patients who underwent surgery, chemo and radiation therapy at ngayon nasa past medical history na lang nila ang renal cancer. Meron syang pag-asa.

  22. Pag matagal ka ng diabetic, usually, ang tinitira nito in the end, is kidney. Nakaka lungkot...

    1. Ang diabetes controllable dapat wag na wag kang titikim ng bawal kahit konti. Ang bawal, bawal! Karamihan sa diabetic di makatis dahilan nila konti lang naman. Nag ke crave kasi sila sa mga bawal na pagkain. Kailangan stable yung blood sugar nila pag baba taas yun yung malakas makasira.

    2. minsan kasi long term use of meds na malalakas nakaka apekto talaga sa Kidney. There are a lot of other factors.

      Delete
    3. True, one of the many complications of Diabetes is kidney failure. Always keep your blood sugar within normal limits. Diet and exercise are encouraged. And true din na, some medications like Metformin (drug of choice ng diabetes) can damage your kidneys (nephrotoxic) lalo na if long term use. Kaya nga, if you have diabetes, along with your heart, have your kidneys checked din. My mother has kidney complications because of diabetes, diagnosed in 2009. she’s not taking meds for that renal problem. And she’s not on dialysis either. Her creatinine levels are above normal but no too high and as per doctor, she just needs to maintain normal sugar to prevent the progression of nephropathy.

  28. Baka dahil marami siyang iniinom na mga gamot kaya humina yung kidney kaya nagka cancer.

    1. totoo din, sir Gary baka gusto nyo po try herbal naman. Masama po sa kidney mga malalakas na gamot.

      Delete
    2. Cancer is multifactorial, di lang naman gamot ang pwedeng sanhi nuon. Lalo na kailangan nya talaga ng gamot oara sa iba nyang condition. Pwedeng may lahi rin sila ng cancer sa family.

      Delete
    3. I think he meant yung meds being nephrotoxic, damaged the kidneys. Then cancer developed because of kidney failure.

  29. I myself have a kidney failure sir Gary. I am a fan sir!I have been since the 80s. Take me out of the dark" is the one song that gives me hope! I do pray all the time,sir!

  36. Kidney Cancer is one of the friendliest cancers. It does not respond to chemo and radiation. Surgery (nephrectomy) is the treatment of choice. He’ll be fine!
