Earlier today, the ever-feisty Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago announced in a press briefing at the Senate that she is currently battling a stage 4 lung cancer.
“I’m not afraid of cancer. There is nothing I am afraid of,” she says.
In the past months, there has been a strong clamour especially from netizens urging the senator to run for presidency in the 2016 elections. Will Miriam’s illness hinder her from running as the next presidentiable? Or will the fervent support of her followers just make her stronger and more courageous than ever despite her sickness to run for the most coveted political seat in the country?
Check out some of the posts of our fellow netizens who turned to Twitter to air their prayers and wishes for Senator Miriam:
