Another heartbreaking news reached Dennis Thomas Tudtud today on his birthday. 
 
He was informed that his father and oncologist Dr. Dennis Tudtud has also passed away after his battle to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). 
 
It was only days apart when his mother, Dr. Helen Tudtud, passed away on Saturday. 
 
“My sister and I are in deep sorrow that God had to take both of them but I take comfort that they are happy together in their journey to paradise,” Dennis Thomas wrote on his post on Facebook today.

He said that he will miss his “selfless” father who has always put others before himself. 
 
In his post, he remembered how his selflessness also extended beyond their family. 
 
“As a doctor, he would even pay for the chemotherapy sessions of some of his patients just so their families could spend more years with them. He was generous beyond words, could even describe,” he wrote. 
 
Although physically, Dennis Thomas’ parents are no longer here to celebrate his birthday, he said he will celebrate their lives. 
 
“Please remember my parents, Doctor Dennis Ramon Momongan Tudtud and Doctor Helen Evangelista Tudtud. Please include them in your prayers as they journey together to heaven. Please also pray for those who are still fighting this battle. My parents may have lost but the Lord won two angels,” he said.

The Department of Health in Region 7 (DOH-7) has neither confirmed nor deny the deaths of the Tudtud couple due to COVID-19. 
 
Both doctors worked at the Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (VSMMC). 
 
Dr. Dennis was an oncologist, and Dr. Helen was a pathologist. 
 
Dennis Thomas said, in an interview, he is not sure how they both got the disease, but he suspected that it may have been somewhere in the hospital. 
 
Dr. Dennis was catering to cancer patients at that time.
