Doris Bigornia’s daughter gives update after broadcaster’s heart surgery


Doris Bigornia’s daughter Nikki took to social media to relay the news that her mom’s open heart surgery was successful.

Nikki shared her mom’s health update via Twitter on Tuesday, March 2, more than a week after the 55-year-old broadcast journalist suffered a heart attack. 

“Maraming salamat po sa lahat ng nagdasal at patuloy na nagdarasal para kay mommy. Natapos na po ang surgery niya nung isang araw at successful po ito,” wrote Nikki.

The younger Bigornia also expressed her gratitude and asked for more prayers for her mom’s full recovery. 

“Subalit, patuloy po kaming humihingi ng inyong mga dasal para sa tuluy-tuloy na recovery ni mommy.

“Naiparating ko na rin po ang inyong mga mensahe at pagmamahal, at siya po ay taos-pusong nagpapasalamat sa inyong lahat,” said Nikki. 

It was last February 22 when Alvin Elchico, Doris’ co-anchor on the DZMM Teleradyo program SRO, revealed that the “Mutya ng Masa” was in the Intensive Care Unit and scheduled for an open heart surgery after suffering a heart attack.

Colleagues in the media industry such as Karen Davila, Korina Sanchez and Jeff Canoy sought prayers and expressed support for Doris.
