During her appearance on “Tonight with Boy Abunda” last week, Jona could not help but cry as she talked about her family.

At that time, the singer said his father had been confined at the hospital for over a month after fungus was found developing inside his head.

Jona said that due to the rapid growth of the fungus, her father's vision was also affected, making him blind.
