Actress Nadia Montenegro took to Instagram to appeal for financial assistance for veteran comedienne Evelyn Guerrero, popularly known as “Matutina” from the defunct comedy show “John and Marsha”, who is in critical condition.

On her IG account, Montenegro posted a collage of Matutina with text:

Matutina was the iconic maid of Dona Delilah (Dely Atay-Atayan) in the family comedy with late actors Dolphy and Nida Blanca.

Montenegro said that while conscious, Matutina could not talk due to the tube in her throat.

“She is dependent on oxygen support & without it, she cannot breathe on her own. The doctors found out that her thyroid mass is what’s obstructing her airway/causing her difficulty to breathe. She communicates by writing,” added Montenegro.

For assistance, Montenegro said donors could send their donations through the Damay Kamay Foundation, an organization composed of several actors whose aim is to help fellow actors in need.

She is scheduled to have a surgery (thyroidectomy) this week. We are just waiting for the result of her biopsy though she cannot be operated right away due many complications like Diabetes. Let us all include her in our prayers. Any help through #DamayKamayFoundation will be greatly appreciated.

She is currently conscious but cannot talk due to the tube on her throat. She is dependent on oxygen support & without it, she cannot breathe on her own. The doctors found out that her thyroid mass is what’s obstructing her airway/causing her difficulty to breathe. She communicates by writing. Thank you very much.
