MANILA, Philippines—(UPDATE) The condition of former Philippine president Corazon Aquino, in hospital for colon cancer, has deteriorated, her daughter said in a televised interview Monday.
Prayers have been said across this mostly Catholic Southeast Asian nation for Aquino, 76, who has been hospitalized for the past month.
“This is the hardest time for all of us,” Kristina Bernadette Aquino told ABS-CBN television.
Aquino’s daughter wept as she outlined her mother’s condition.
“She is in pain already, so please pray for her so that it could be lessened.”
