April Boy Regino was one of the country’s greatest singer in the 90’s. His songs “Paano ang Puso Ko,” “Umiiyak Ang Puso,” and “Di Ko Kayang Tanggapin,” still live in the hearts and minds of his fans. Fans of the singer were surprised when he revealed something about his condition during his recent guesting at Willie Revillame’s variety show, Wowowin.
In 2013, the singer decided to leave his showbiz career to migrate to the United States and receive treatment for an uncontrolled growth of malformed cells in his prostate area. He successfully recovered from this illness and became healthier.
Two years later, the OPM singer revealed that he is also suffering from diabetes. Furthermore, his rising blood sugar ruptured on of the veins in his eyes and made him blind.
April Boy Regino revealed that he didn’t have enough money to pay for his medicine. When his condition got worse, he turned to Willie to ask for help. In turn, Willie lent out a helping hand to his friend without hesitation.
“Napaka buti pong tao nito… Ngayon lang kami ulit nagkaharap pero nung nabulang ako, sya kaagad ang una kong tinawagan.”
The singer thanked his dear friend onstage as he broke down in tears. He said that the TV host was the one person who helped him finance his eye operation. He added that Willie’s help was his motivation to fight his condition and continue living.

In response, Willie Revillame said that it doesn’t matter who the people that helped April Boy recover were. He added that what’s more important is that the singer is now trying to recover from his fall.
The audience couldn’t help but shed tears from the inspiring story the OPM shared but the Wowowin host didn’t want to end the segment in such a manner, so he tried to cheer them up with a joke.
