Kris Aquino isn't letting her medical condition stop her from extending a helping hand to her fellow actress Miles Ocampo, who is battling thyroid cancer since late last year.
Earlier this week, Miles opened up about how she was diagnosed with Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma, a common type of thyroid cancer that affects people of any age, and how she has struggled in dealing with it.
"I feel like it was an endless blood test, ultrasound to biopsy, then the decision to remove it ASAP. We found out it was Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma,” she recalled. “I had to undergo Thyroidectomy surgery to remove my thyroid glands. It all happened in an instant."
After she revealed this in an Instagram post, Kris left her a heartwarming message of support, "We love you Ate."
The Queen of All Media is currently striving to stay strong in her own battle against her four autoimmune diseases and is now living in the US to seek treatment. A day after Miles revealed her thyroid problem, Kris wrote a lengthy post on her Instagram page where she thanked her "excellent team of doctors."
In the comments section, Miles left a message that is similar to what Kris wrote to her, "I love you always, nanay."
Knowing how hard it is to have to deal with risky diseases, Kris offered the young celebrity a helping hand in case she needed anything from the US.
"Praying for you. Do you need anything from here? Please message me," she wrote.

It's no secret that Kris has fostered a motherly relationship with Miles. They two have gotten close ever since they starred together in the 2013 Philippines drama television series, where Miles played as the daughter of Kris' character.
In fact, Miles referenced this in an Instagram post when she visited Kris back in February 2021, writing, "From being my nanay Roxanne eight years ago 'til now, thank you for loving me. Thank you very much for everything, tita Kris. I love you always."
As of now, Miles is recovering from her operation and has urged others to be kind, addressing concerns against body shaming.
