Palace holds thanksgiving mass for Cory’s successful colon cancer operation


On orders of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo from Syria, Malacanang held at 3 p.m. today a thanksgiving mass for the successful colon cancer operation of former President Corazon Cojuangco Aquino.

Cabinet Secretary Silvestre Bello III invited the members of the Malacanang Press Corps to the thanksgiving mass at Heroes Hall, which he said, is an indication that President Arroyo is very much concerned about the health of the former president.

Bello said President Arroyo also ordered that she be regularly updated on former President Aquino’s operation last Monday.

“The President is genuinely concerned about the health of the former President,” Bello said.

“I think that every freedom-loving Filipino should share the concern of President Arroyo for the former president. We could do no less,” Bello stressed.

The former president went under the knife for the second time for her colon cancer last Monday.

Former President Aquino was responsible for the restoration of freedom and democracy in the country.

“Aside from just thanking the Lord God for the success of her operation, we should appeal to every Filipino to pray that the former president will have a very fast recovery, Bello said. – (PND)
