Content Creator Gabo Adeva Opens Up About Eye Cancer

She’s facing a new challenge.

Gabo Adeva is no stranger to challenges. Once, she even got caught in a TikTok Live issue. It involved Awra Briguela, Buknoy, and Vice Ganda. It was a blow most people assumed she wouldn’t bounce back from. 

But Gabo showed genuine remorse and picked herself back up. Putting in the work paid off; she started getting cast in projects like Momshies! Ang Soul Mo’y Akin. That flick starred Jolina Magdangal, Karla Estrada, and Melai Cantiveros.

Gabo Adeva opens up about eye cancer

Last September 17, Gabo shared a lengthy post on Instagram along with a photo of an eye ultrasound. It read, in part:

“I HAVE CANCER. Yes! You read it right, stage 2 Eye Cancer. First strike sa right eye, mabubuhay pa naman but it doesn’t change the fact that I’m diagnosed with cancer. From several optemetricians down to oncologists. Pumunta pa nga ako sa Shinagawa, same findings at ito na nga…cancer cells that could spread throughout my sexy ass kung hindi ko ipapatanggal ang right eye ko at papalitan ng artificial eye. I’m perfectly functioning as normal, not bed ridden or anything. (Not yet at least wag na sana tayo umabot dun 20 years young palang ako haha!)”

The influencer also shared about a major eye surgery set for last September 23rd. Her “enucleation surgery” will prevent the cancer cells from spreading to the rest of her body.

Pumayag na agad ako sa eye removal…para hindi ako mapaaga jusko gusto ko pang umarte sa harap ng camera at mapanuod sa bigscreen noh! Ano yun nalang yon? Aayaw pa ba ako? Artistang may artificial eye haha!”

She went on to say that she’s already undergone several tests. Her results show that the cells haven’t spread to her liver and other body parts yet.
