Selina Dagdag: 29-year-old Filipino sports reporter and newlywed has post-injection miscarriage, diagnosed with uterine cancer

Mrs. Selena Dagdag-Alas.MAKATI CITY
— A 29-year-old newlywed, sports reporter and product pitch woman has experienced the ultimate highs and debilitating lows in life all in a matter of 19 months.
Mrs. Selena DagDag-Alas is a courtside reporter for the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA). She’s worked as a sports and news reporter since at least 2014 based on her Instagram history. Mrs. DagDag-Alas started working at CNN Philippines on May 2, 2016 where she covered elections and other news. She also started covering the PBA later that year. There are photos of her with ESPN 5 microphones as well. But perhaps the greatest moment in her young career came in the summer of 2017.
Mrs. Dagdag-Alas was a PBA sideline reporter for One Sports. She was doing a post-game interview with NLEX Road Warriors guard Kevin Alas. Mr. Alas’ teammates apparently knew that he had a crush on Mrs. Dagdag-Alas. They kept smiling at each other until Mr. Alas leaned in and kissed Mrs. Dagdag-Alas on the cheek.
The moment went viral, garnering millions of views in the Philippines. The couple started dating immediately thereafter.
Two years later, on July 2, 2019, Mr. Alas proposed.
Both Selena and Kevin were at the heights of their careers. The Manila Bulletin
reported in May 2020 that Mr. Alas was about to sign a maximum contract with NLEX
, paying him P420,000 ($8,000) per month. Mrs. Dagdag-Alas established herself as an all-around, knowledgable sports reporter. She also began pitching numerous products on Instagram, including Lysol wipes when the so-called pandemic commenced in 2020.
Mr. and Mrs. Alas were married in a civil ceremony on September 9, 2020, which is a legal marriage in the Philippines
. A little over a year later, in October 2021, the couple had a church wedding.
Unfortunately the fairy tale life quickly morphed into a nightmare because of experimental injections.
“Help me, God.”
It’s unclear when Mrs. Dagdag-Alas received her first injection, or which brand it was. But she received her second injection on June 22. “Praise God for the gift of medicine,” she wrote.
Note that the Philippines vaccine mandate for all workers went into effect on November 30. Mrs. Dagdag-Alas suffered no immediate adverse effects from the injections. Again the couple had their church marriage in October, and celebrated Christmas with their family. Then Mrs. Dagdag-Alas shared some sad news after the New Year.
The couple learned that they were five weeks pregnant sometime in December. But soon after the discovery, Mrs. Dagdag-Alas suffered a miscarriage. She underwent a dilation and curettage procedure on January 21. Said procedure is done when a fetus dies in utero but does not completely pass out of the body
The couple received more grim news last week. The reason Mrs. Dagdag-Alas had the miscarriage was because of gestational trophoblastic neoplasia (GTN). The rare condition causes tumors to grow in the uterus shortly after conception. Essentially tumors form instead of a healthy fetus and placenta forming when the sperm and egg meet, according to the National Cancer Institute
. The disease happens in only about 1 in 1,000 pregnancies. Most of the time it is benign
. But the malignant forms are typically treated with radiation, chemotherapy and/or hysterectomy.
Mr. Alas posted an Instagram update on May 1, suggesting that Mrs. Dagdag-Alas will undergo chemotherapy.
A 2021 meta-analysis published in the International Journal of Gynecological Cancer
found that GTN patients treated with high-dose chemotherapy often develop permanent amenorrhea – cessation of menstrual cycles. Thus they can no longer have children.
We’ll follow up on this story in due course.
Carnage continues in the Philippines
We could literally write a story every week about the situation in the Philippines. It truly seems like that country is being hit harder by vaccine deaths and maimings than any other nation.
Mr. Zack Zaideen received a booster injection on or around January 18. He reported four-straight days of high fever thereafter.
By March 6, he was diagnosed with so-called COVID-19.
That condition then was dismissed as “long COVID” by April 15.
Mr. Zaideen passed away on April 26, with God know what from the shots.
Mr. KC Apolto David received his first Pfizer mRNA injection on October 20, 2021.
He passed away on or around April 23. Some of the comments suggest he had a sudden heart attack.
It seems almost mandatory for Filipinos to post the “I got my vaccine” photos on social media. Again, several Filipinos have told us that the social media band-aid photos serve as a fast and acceptable vaccine passport to enter indoor establishments.
The next official Philippines census takes place in 2025. The last one was in 2020, and counted a population of over 109 million people. Every census since the first official one in 1877 has recorded population increase. That trend is guaranteed to end in 2025.
Stay vigilant and protect your friends and loved ones.
