"Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce myself to you as the only senator who has been diagnosed with lung cancer. I have come so you can see me personally before cancer ravages my body."

Oh, Madame Miriam, you just broke our hearts big time.

Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago shocked the nation last Wednesday, July 2, by announcing that she is suffering from stage four lung cancer of the left lung. But while her condition sounds very serious, the good news is the cancer doesn't seem to be spreading. Plus, she claims to have a "magic tablet" that will fully rid her of her illness in as little as six weeks!

"I don't know what the reactions of my enemies are," she told reporters during her press conference. "Maybe they will be happy because on one hand I might die and then they could get rid of me. But on the other hand I might survive and then I will get rid of them. I'm not afraid of cancer. There's nothing I'm afraid of." Please don't talk like that—it's like you're saying goodbye already!
