Actress Liezl Martinez Succumbs to Cancer at 47

Veteran actress Liezl Martinez, the wife of veteran actor Albert Martinez, succumbed to cancer at 6:15 AM on Saturday, March 14, 2015, at the Medical City in Pasig City.

Liezl was diagnosed with cancer in 2007 and has been in and out of the hospital for treatment. According to her uncle Cheng Muhlach, she was admitted at the Medical City since Monday because of her Stage 4 cancer but sadly passed away this morning.

The 47-year-old actress’ battle with cancer was not a secret but the family chose to stay out of the limelight and the media circus, not releasing photos of the actress in her possibly emaciated condition.

Two days before her death, celebrity columnist Ogie Diaz released a blind item pertaining to an actress whose impending death is already accepted by her immediate family, including her actor husband, and kids. Her cousins and the rest of her extended family could not yet come to terms with her condition but closely finding they just have to deal with it. Many of those who read the column commented that this actress was surely Liezl.

Sadly, it really was Liezl. The actress is an only child, so her mother finds it difficult to deal with the thought of losing her. However, her long battle with cancer has taken a toll on her body. The blind item revealed how the actress already had a bloated body because many of her major organs have stopped functioning.

Liezl’s wake will be held Arlington.

The family, however, remains steadfast about not releasing photos of her as a sick person. We greatly appreciate that…for we can all remember Liezl as the beautiful woman, the lovely wife of Albert Martinez.

Rest in peace, Liezl Martinez…
