Disheartened by the indifference of his showbiz colleagues, veteran actor John Regala expressed his disappointment in a heartfelt plea for financial assistance.
In an open letter, he reached out to his former friends in the industry, explaining his urgent need for an operation and hoping they would lend a helping hand.
Reminiscing about his significant contributions to the world of showbiz, he appealed to their memories, expecting them to recognize his past achievements.
“Mahal kung mga kapatid sa industria. Ito’y bukas na liham sanay ma unawaan niyo ang nilalaman ng liham na ito. Mahigit tatlong dekada naring akong artista at ng bigay ako ng kasiyahan at karangalan sa industria ng pilikula. Nag bigay karangalan sa pelikulang pilipino marami naring akong ibahagi sa mga bida at kuntrabida man ng pinilakang tabing . Kaya ako nmn po ang na ngangailangan po sa ngayon sana po wag namn akon ipahiya sa hihilingin sa inyo .ngayon namn po ako humingi ng tulong sa ating guild.” John said.
He emphasized the importance of receiving immediate treatment, stating his aversion to becoming helpless, especially in front of those whom he believed would support him indefinitely. He implored them to grant him a shred of dignity, as John deserved respect.
“Ayaw ko po pumanaw na inutil lalo na sa mga harapan ng mga taong akala ko ay habang buhay kung makakasama.bigyan niyo namm ako kunting dignidad ako’y nag susumamo don bilang john regala karapatdapat nmn akong sa respetong yan,”
Nonetheless, it appears that the actor failed to capture the attention of the showbiz community this time around.
Mga kapatid ko sa industriya ngaun ko napatunayan na wala kayong pag ibig sa akin,” he stated.
Thankfully, despite the lack of financial support, John revealed that he managed to undergo the operation.
It is worth noting that several showbiz personalities had previously assisted John, but the assistance was short-lived due to accusations that the veteran actor was misusing the money for vices.
