She went on to express her gratitude to the nurse for helping her during an extremely difficult period in her life.

“Maraming, maraming salamat Dianne sa pag-alaga, pagmamahal at pagsasabi lagi na, ‘Kaya mo yan, Ma’am Sylvia, ‘wag kang gi-give up. Laban po!’ Ilang beses kitang tinanong noon, ‘Mabubuhay pa ba ako, Dianne? Makakauwi pa ba ako?’ Sagot mo sa akin, ‘Opo, magkikita pa kayo ng mga anak mo. Hinihintay ka nila, kaya palakas at pagaling ka.’ Hahaha. Kaiyak maalala,” she said.
