    On Facebook, the former Kapamilya radio and TV personality revealed that her 11-year-old daughter has agreed to shave her head following the effects of her chemotherapy treatments. Anthony said he could see the pain in her daughter's eyes as she tried to be brave.

    Anthony wrote, “Nakangiti siya pero alam kong durog na durog ang puso niya nung nag umpisang malugas ang kaniyang buhok dahil sa chemotherapy. Nung pumayag si Zoey na magpakalbo at nalaman kong papunta na sa ospital ang misis ko kasama si Ate Tet, umalis na muna ako."

    The emotional father said he couldn't help his tears fall as he watched his daughter lose her hair. Anthony shared how proud she is of Zoey's courage.

    He wrote, "Akala ko ay malakas na ako. Marupok pala. May video habang kinakalbo si Zoey. At tuwing makikita ko iyon, hindi ko mapigil ang pagpatak ng aking luha. Ang wala o maikling buhok ang isa sa dahilan ng insecurity ni Zoey."

    "Pero nung makita kong ipinost niya, nagpaalam ako na ipo-post ko rin. Hanga ako sa tapang ng aming panganay. I love you, Zoey" he added.

    Leukemia diagnosis

    Anthony shared that Zoey was diagnosed with leukemia a year ago. He recalled how they woke up at 2:00 in the morning after Zoey was crying due to pain on her legs.

    "Eksaktong isang taon na pala mula nung subukin ang aking pamilya ng isang karanasang hindi namin makakaya kung kami lamang. Bandang alas dos ng madaling araw, ginising ako ni Zoey na umiiyak dahil napakasakit daw ng kaniyang mga binti hanggang sa kaniyang hita," he said.

    After being referred to a specialist, their world stopped when Zoey was confirmed to suffer from a bone marrow disease which later on was identified as leukemia.

    “Parang guguho ang mundo naming mag-asawa lalo’t si Zoey na noon ay 11 taong gulang pa lamang, ay nakikita naming nahihirapan," Anthony said.

    Since then, Anthony and his family have been praying fervently for Zoey's healing. He admitted that there are good doctors and facilities but without God, Zoey's recovery would be impossible.

    "Walang tigil ang aming pananalangin, kahit gusto sana naming ikubli sa aming anak ang pagluha upang ipakita sa kaniya na kami’y matapang at malakas subalit tuwing kami’y dudulog sa Diyos ay hindi maiwasan na kami’y tumangis," he said.

    “Ang pangunahing laman ng aming ang mga pagdaing - alisin ang kirot at hapdi at kung puwede ay ako na lamang bilang ama ang magdanas para sa aming anak," he added.

    In the end, Anthony wrote a short uplifting message for her daughter Zoey as she continues to battle against leukemia.

    "Salamat sayo, Anak... Zoey... inspirasyon ka namin dahil sa yong katapangan at lakas. Wag kang mag-alala, maganda ka pa rin! Mahal na mahal ka namin ng Mommy mo at ni Helga," he wrote.

    Hindi ko akalain na papayag si Zoey na ipakita sa madla ang larawan na ito. Nakangiti siya pero alam kong durog na durog...
