MANILA – Journalist Doris Bigornia will resume her work on TV Patrol, ABS-CBN’s flagship news program, on Tuesday, about three months after taking a hiatus due to a heart attack that prompted her to suffer a open heart surgery at the end of February.
“Work from home na ako. Kailangan ko ng maghanap ng storya. Pero, at least, officially, babalik na akó tomorrow,” ‘Mutya ng Masa’ said on SRO on ABS-CBN’s TeleRadyo, which she co-hosts with Alvin Elchico.
Bigornia underwent triple heart bypass surgery and said she needed regular dialysis due to kidney failure.
Just over a month after going under the knife, she appeared on ORS, thanking her family, doctors, colleagues and everyone who prayed and gave her all kinds of support.
Bigornia thanked her doctors for saving her life and the Lord for giving her a second chance.
Besides her heart problem and kidney failure, Bigornia said she also suffered from diabetes.
She began returning regularly to her ORS program on April 19.
Bigornia was the best field reporter at the 10th Comguild Media Awards in 2015 and at the 5th Paragala: Central Luzon Media Awards in 2018, among the accolades she received for her work in broadcast journalism.
