Ateneo commit Yana Bautista, 17, passes away due to COVID-19

Women’s football lost another daughter.

Alyana Bautista (September 13, 2002-July 23, 2020) passed away on Wednesday due to complications from coronavirus (COVID-19).

She was just 17 years old.

Yana, sister of Philippine Women’s National Football Team standout Martie, was diagnosed with Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM) — a rare inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system.

Last Saturday, Yana was given a swab test that resulted positive for COVID-19.

She was under intensive care for the next few days, before passing away early Wednesday.

“These past few months have been difficult for Yana. She was diagnosed with ADEM that was further complicated by COVID-19. Many challenges continued to surface where much of them left us extremely exhausted — especially for my little sister,” read Martie’s post.

Yana had just graduated from Miriam College High School, and had just committed to play for the Ateneo Lady Eagles.

A defender, she also played for Nomads-Ateneo last year during the 2019 PFFWL season.

“She was a captain, teammate, friend, sister, and daughter. She was always lively, stylish, and comical,” continued Martie, host of Tiebreaker Vods’ So She Did!

Yana’s service will be this weekend.
