MANILA, Philippines – After 3 years of battling breast cancer, the illness of actress Liezl Martinez has allegedly spread through her lungs, “Showbiz News Ngayon” (SNN) reported on Thursday.

In December of 2010, a lot of people felt relieved when Liezl told ABS-CBN News in an interview that she has recovered from the disease.

However, Liezl’s daughter, Alyanna, surprised the entertainment industry last Saturday when she posted in her official Twitter account that her mom is scheduled to undergo a biopsy.

SNN sought for Alyanna’s clarification but she refused to comment about the matter.

Liezl’s husband, Albert Martinez, also declined to say anything about his wife’s health.

In a text message sent to SNN by Albert’s road manager, he said “he will just wait until Liezl is ready to speak regarding her condition.”

Meanwhile, Liezl’s cousin Aga Muhlach gave a reaction about the condition of the actress.

“It’s all good. Ayaw ko sila pangunahan but we’re in constant communication so we’re all there. Matagal na iyan. Okay yan, kayang kaya niya yan. Only God knows. We’re here in this world to live life. So let it be. Salamat sa pag-aalala niyo. She’s gonna be fine. Masakit sa kanya yon but she’s gonna be fine. What we can all do is just really continue to pray for her,” he said.

SNN have learned that Liezl will be discharged from the hospital on Sunday.

Liezl will go directly to Muhlach’s rest house in Batangas where she will spend some time to rest.
