PBA rivals overjoyed as LA Tenorio now cancer-free

PBA rivals overjoyed as LA Tenorio now cancer-free

Six months ago, LA Tenorio announced he was taking a sabbatical from basketball due to stage 3 colon cancer.

 Now, the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel leader is cancer-free after a long battle that saw him get chemotherapy sessions in Singapore. The 39-year-old had his last session at the Mt. Elizabeth Hospital back in September 6. 

This is good news to the Ginebra faithful, who have bee yearning to see the “GINeral” return to PBA action again.

His rivals in the PBA shared the same excitement. 

San Miguel Beermen playmaker Chris Ross and Terrafirma Dyip aces Alex Cabagnot and Juami Tiongson were thrilled to hear this latest update, which came just a few weeks before the league unfurls.

Cabagnot retweeted Tenorio’s post on X (formerly Twitter) and laced it with prayer emojis.


Tiongson posted the same on the comment section.

Ross, who was called to serve Gilas Pilipinas once more, this time in the upcoming Asian Games, tweeted an Iron Man gif, an ode to the league’s very own Iron Man in Tenorio.

“Let’s gooooooo!!!!!!! @LA_Tenorio,” he wrote. 

Tenorio is concurrently an assistant coach of the Gilas squad gearing up for the Hangzhou Asian Games. With the latest development about his health, it seems fans will see him in action again sooner than later.
