MANILA -- Former actress Jackie Forster is asking her friends and followers to pray for her young daughter Caleigh.

In her official Instagram account, Forster revealed that her daughter is battling leukemia.

Forster and her family are now in Malaysia, where Caleigh began her chemotherapy sessions on Tuesday.

"My family and I want to express our gratitude to all of you who standing in prayer with us for our beautiful #kikayCaleigh she is doing very well today. Remarkably well. I believe our good Lord is healing her through all of your prayers and with hands of His blessed angels- doctors and nurses here in Malaysia," Forster wrote.

"Our dearest Caleigh has leukemia and she has started chemotherapy yesterday, this will be a long battle but its a battle We Will Win! She has been through a series of tests and transfusions the past 3 days so I would just like for us to pray together for her journey to be as easy as possible on her and that Victory will be ours! In Jesus name. The enemy doesn't realise all Glory and Honor will Always be Given to our Lord. Caleigh belongs to our Abba Father and He has great plans for her (love) I already started calling her #superCaleigh she says she likes #superKikay lol #prayersForKikayCaleigh please #prayerWarriors #GodisGood #AllGloryBeToGod," she added.

In her earlier posts on Instagram, Forster also asked for prayers after her daughter, who was suffered from high fever, bruises and blood clots.

Last year, Forster made headlines when her sons with former PBA star Benjie Paras, Kobe and Andrei, spoke up against her.

After first lambasting his sons' stepmother, Forster eventually said she will give the space her sons are asking from her.
