MANILA – After performing at “The Music of Rey Valera” earlier this month and at ASAP 20 this weekend, Megastar Sharon Cuneta succumbed to her persistent coughs and was then brought to St. Luke’s Medical Center where she has been confined.

In her post on Facebook yesterday, Sharon admitted experiencing a persistent cough in the past three weeks. She then took antibiotics and experienced temporary relief, which allowed her to sing at the tribute shows.

“I sang at “The Music of Rey Valera” with the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra led by Maestro Gerard Salonga and with some wonderful singers at the Solaire on August 1. The next day, I was so sick I couldn’t get up [and had] major congestion and still, a cough,” her status read.

“Last Sunday, I sang in ASAP… Both times, I was able to sing because my doctor gave me medicine with steroids to open up my breathing and somehow temporarily stopped me from coughing,” her status further said.

Still having the relentless cough after weeks, Sharon finally decided to consult a doctor and was later on confined. She now asked for prayers for her quick recovery.

Aside from her Facebook post, the Megastar also shared a photo of her receiving medication through infusion therapy and another photo of her with daughters KC and Miel.
