MANILA, Philippines – YouTube star Jam Sebastian, suffering from late stage lung cancer, is currently on life support, according to posts made on their Jamich Facebook page. Family and friends took to social media to ask for prayers
Here is a summary of the updates since Jam was placed on life support:
"Nakita ng dalawang mata ko nung isang araw na halos wala na si Jam, kahit mga doktor tinapat na kami na hindi na magtatagal. Makina nalang ang nagpa pump sa paghinga nya sa halos 90%.pero dahil sa tulong na dasal nang lahat ng ating mga kababayan.sa kahit anong relihiyon ay muling gumising si Jam, at ngaun po ay 40% nalang ng makina ang ginagamit at konti nalang tatanggalin na ito, at magiging normal na ulit ang pag hinga nya."
(I saw with my own two eyes that a day ago, Jam was not responding at all, and even the doctors told us that he won't last long. A machine was pumping him to breathe at 90%. But the help all of your prayers have given, whatever your religion may be, Jam woke up again, and now his machine is only using 40%. It won't be long until he will remove the machine, and his breathing will be normal again.)
Fans and celebrity friends took to social media to rally support for Jam. TV host and actress Kris Aquino dropped by the hospital to visit:

"It was a long day & night. I received several texts from @gretchenfullido regarding Jam. Immediately after Malacañang, I went to St. Luke's, I didn't want to waste time changing so I went in my gown because the texts' urgency was evident. Tonight I had the privilege of meeting a mother whose LOVE for her 2 sons mirrors mine. Mommy Maricar was so appreciative of my effort & I realized all of us mothers will be grateful for kindness shown to our children. I should be the 1 thanking her, for reminding me to continue prioritizing & treasuring my sons even more. My prayers are w/ her, their family, close friends and Jam- that God may ease his suffering. And that they will continue to have unwavering faith in our Creator's love," she wrote on Instagram.
