TONY DEZUÑIGA Still Unconscious in Las Piñas Doctors Hospital

Tony DeZuñiga has remained unconscious (but not in coma) since suffering a mild stroke two weeks ago, his wife, Tina told Flipgeeks.

In a message sent through Facebook, Mrs. DeZuñiga said she is struggling to pay the medical costs.


Hi Jerald,

We’re in Las Pinas City. This is our second week sa ICU. Tony’s still unconscious. The problem is we don’t have insurance and we never had this experience dito sa Pilipinas na lahat cash —-the medicines are so expensive. There’s some people who told us they will help but until now, wala pa rin. Anyway, would be nice but in Manila, I know everybody’s having hard time here. No harm in trying pero ok din siguro kung hindi na. Thank you very much for the thoughts.



The Jonah Hex co-creator is being monitored 24/7 in the intensive care unit of Las Piñas Doctors Hospital. He is also suffering from pneumonia due to stroke. If you would like to help in anyway, or if you would want to know how to contact Tony’s family, please don’t hesitate to ask us.
