I’m just as baffled as everyone else how the beautiful Cebuana – a health professional no less – contracted the disease. But we all know that the dreaded Big C can afflict any individual. It is possible that she has a weak part in her system that might have led to the same.
This is the main reason why she was unable to crown Angeli Dione Gomez as her back-to-back country successor during Miss Tourism International 2013. Being the real trouper, she still departed for Kuala Lumpur. But then again, her health condition got in the way of fulfilling her responsibilities as the outgoing titleholder.
It is never too late to ask for a miracle. But for now, let us pray for the ease of constant pain. More than the fact that she has given honor to the country in the international pageant stage, Rizzini is like a sister to all of us.
