Gigi De Lana has auctioned off some of her personal items to raise money for medical bills for her mother, who was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer.
The singer, who is currently on a two-month hiatus to treat lumps on her throat, has auctioned off two of the crop tops she wore in her viral performance videos, as posted on her Facebook page on Monday, June 19.
“Bid for a cause and get a chance to own Gigi’s iconic crop tops as seen on viral videos. These items will be framed and personally signed, plus a chance to meet Gigi De Lana and The Gigi Vibes” , he said, referring to the singer’s band, “All offers go directly to his mother’s medical fund.”
The clothes fetched 70,000 pesos each at the time of writing.
“Que mga bagay na mahirap i-let go pero kailangan. May the sentimental value matter, but may it matter, but may it matter,” she said in the caption. “Salamat sa mga nakabili na, and gustong tumulong sa amin to raise funds for my mother’s medical expenses.”
(There are things we need to let go even though it’s hard for us. These items have sentimental value but there are more important things to prioritize now. Thank you to those who have already purchased some of the items and to those who helped us raise funds for my mother’s medical expenses.)
In a separate post, De Lana addressed those who apparently mocked her auction while thanking her fans who came to her defense.
Besides clothes, De Lana also sells her luxury bag and her pre-loved high-end multi-hairdresser.
De Lana went public with her mother’s condition earlier this year after she cut her hair short to show his support for his mother who has undergone chemotherapy.
In May, the singer and her bandmates were involved in a road accident in La Union because their driver had fallen asleep. Fortunately, she did not suffer serious injuries.
De Lana started her singing career as a finalist in “Tawag ng Tanghalan” in 2016. /ra
