Despite cancer battle, Jamich staying strong through the holidays
Jam's family gives an update on his condition
MANILA, Philippines – The mother and brother of Jam Sebastian, one half of the popular YouTube duo Jamich, said that all they want this coming Christmas is for him to get well, months after his lung cancer diagnosis.

In an interview on Startalk Saturday, December 20, Maricar Sebastian and Jam’s brother Yexel said that they could not bear seeing Jam suffer from his condition.

“Everyday torture. Every minute may fear kasi hindi ko alam kung may surprises na nangyayari sa anak ko. Kung ano yung ayaw ko marinig, yung ayoko mangyari, iyon yung nangyayari sa anak ko,” Maricar said.

(Every minute, we fear because I don’t know what might happen to my son. What I don’t want to hear, what I don’t want to happen, that’s what happening to my son.)

Yexel on the other hand said that he grateful that Jam’s fiancee Paolinne Michelle Liggayu is there to support his brother. (READ: Jamich: A love story for keeps)

“Believe ako kay Paolinne. Malaking pasasalamat ko na na hindi niya iniwan. Although napapagod siya, tuloy pa din paglaban niya,” Yexel said.

(I really believe in her. I’m so grateful that she didn’t leave him. Although she does get tired, she goes on fighting.) 

Yexel said that as Christmas approaches, all they want is for Jam to get better. Maricar said that for them, they won’t be able to celebrate Christmas that much knowing that Jam is suffering. She said that Jam is set to undergo chemotherapy after the holidays.

Lagi na lang ako nagdadasal na sana magkaroon ng miracle na gumaling ang anak ko pero nandoon pa rin ang faith namin na gagaling siya,” Maricar said. 

(I’m always praying for a miracle for him to get well, but our faith is still there, that he will get well.) 

Meanwhile, Jamich continues to update their many fans on their social media accounts. Here’s a short instavideo from Jam:

The couple, who recently celebrated their monthsary (6 years, 7 months) last December 10, rose to fame after creating and starring in romantic short films such as By Chance, “Text” Story of Best Friends, and 5 Years from Now, among others.
