MANILA – Marlo Mortel took to social media to share a sweet birthday message for his mom who he considers as “the most beautiful woman in the planet.”
On Instagram, Mortel posted a snap of the two of them with a birthday cake on the table. He then expressed in the caption how grateful he is for being blessed with a tough parent.
“You are my Wonder Woman, everyday I thank the Lord for giving me the toughest Mom anyone could ever have,” he wrote. “You are so strong and selfless, fighting this battle like a true warrior princess!”
Mortel also reminded his mother to keep the faith as “God’s miracles are on its way.”
“We'll be with you every single day ok? I Love You Always & Forever Mommy,” he said.
Stricken by stage four breast cancer, Mortel's mom, Merlie Pamintuan, has been in and out of the hospital.
Last year, Mortel sought for prayers as his mom went through grueling surgeries. It was in 2014 when Pamintuan was first diagnosed with cancer.
