"Remigio Pereira reveals he’s on the mend after spending two weeks in hospital receiving treatment “for my ITP episode.”
In a Facebook post he wrote on Monday, the former singer for “The Tenors” opens up about what he’s been going through due to his ITP (Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura), a bleeding disorder in which the immune system destroys platelets and prevents blood from clotting.
“I’m so sorry I haven’t had the energy [to] write lately… I have been wanting to thank you all for your well wishes, but my health hasn’t been so co-operative,” writes Pereira."
