Jam Sebastian, one-half of the YouTube couple “Jamich,” is now on life support. The 28-year-old, who has been suffering from stage 4 lung cancer since early last year, was placed on a ventilator machine as his health rapidly weakened during the past weeks.

Surrounded by both his and girlfriend Mich Liggayu’s families, Jam woke up briefly to write the words “I love you” on Friday evening.

“Biglang nagising si Jam ngayon. Naging malinaw yung eyes niya,” recounts Liggayu on her Facebook post together with a picture of ‘I love you’ scribbled on paper. “Tinanong ko siya kung anong feeling kung parang bagong gising lang ban a biglang may energy, nag nod siya. Oo daw. Di pa siya makasalita kaya humingi kami ng pen and paper. Kasi baka may gusto siya sabihin. Ayan sinulat para samin lahat.”

Liggayu’s father also posted on his own Facebook account about Jam waking up. “He is awake now. Interacting to all that’s around him. My God! He is saying he loves us. He is now wide awake. Looking at us one by one. He looked at me with both eyes opened and smiled. Tears poured out but I’m happy.”
