Thanks ate morie for the comment. I change it already. Still hoping and waiting for others to come. In the meantime I have found this in my saved file. Someone sent it to me in my email. Thank You whoever you are.


I dreamed that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels. My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said, 'This is the Receiving Section. Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are received.'

I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps from people all over the world.

Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached the second section.

The angel then said to me, 'This is the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and blessings thepeople asked for are processed and delivered to the living persons who asked for them. 'I noticed again how busy it was there. There were many angels working hard at that station, since so many blessings had been requested and were being packaged for delivery to Earth.

Finally at the farthest end of the long corridor we stopped at the door of a very small station. To my great surprise, only one angel was seated there, idly doing nothing. 'This is the Acknowledgment Section,' my angel friend quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed 'How is it that there is no work going on here?' I asked.

'So sad,' the angel sighed. 'After people receive the blessings that they asked for, very few send back acknowledgments .'

'How does one acknowledge God's blessings?' I asked.

'Simple,' the angel answered. Just say, 'Thank you, Lord.'

'What blessings should they acknowledge? ' I asked.

'If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of this world. If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy .'

'And if you get this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity. '

'If you woke up this morning with more health than illness ... You are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day .'

'If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation ... You are ahead of 700 million people in the world.'

'If you can attend a church without the fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death you are envied by, and more blessed than, three billion people in the world! .'

'If your parents are still alive and still married are very rare .'

If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm, you're unique to all those in doubt and despair.'

Ok, what now? How can I start?

If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you as very special and you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.

Have a good day, count your blessings, and if you want, pass this along to remind everyone else how blessed we all are.

May all be loved.
May all be healed.
May all be sheltered.
May all be free from fear.

May I be loved.

A Poem for Dra. Eva

I cannot find the right words

To describe who you are

Because love and hope

Are hard to define.

Your courage is contagious,

Your selflessness inspires.

You give your heart and soul

For the good of everyone.

You are a light

At the end
of the road

        A  miracle of faith,

                                        A mountain of hope



I have found this news in Here's an excerpt in that news..

Since its introduction in 2002, GIPAP has provided the groundbreaking cancer therapy imatinib (Glivec) at no cost to more than 35,000 cancer patients in over 80 countries. Imatinib (Glivec) is a proven-effective treatment for Philadelphia-positive chronic myeloid leukemia (Ph+ CML) and gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST). This unique and direct-to-patient access program was implemented in more than 80 participating centers across the archipelago. In 2007 alone, the benefits provided by GIPAP to Filipino patients totaled more than P1.2 billion. There are now over 600 active GIPAP patients in the Philippines.

Today, GIPAP has evolved to the broader Novartis Oncology Access (NOA) program in the Philippines, an innovative shared-contribution access program that is addressing a huge need in a country with no healthcare reimbursement system and very limited healthcare support from the government. As a new and broader access model, the NOA program is benefiting more Filipino cancer patients and, with new approved indications for imatinib (Glivec), will provide effective treatment to even more patients. 

In 2001, Novartis partnered with The Max Foundation (TMF), a US-based non-profit advocacy and patient support group dedicated to improving the lives and survival rates of patients with blood cancer and rare cancers worldwide. TMF assists in the administration of GIPAP.

GIPAP patient-beneficiaries and their family recently joined cancer specialists and Novartis associates to celebrate the 6th year anniversary of the innovative program in the Philippines. Touched by Max president Rod Padua presented testimonials of patients who have benefited from GIPAP. Touched by Max is a core group of Filipino patients with CML and GIST. Padua’s son Maverick is a GIPAP beneficiary.

2002 – PGH Dra. Ellen Gatchalian informed me I have cancer (CML).

I pray and cried to our God, Jesus for complete healing and help support my daughter Ellen Andres to college, course BSN Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

I make a pushcart; we sell finger foods, chichirea in front of Caylaway Elementary School. We borrow money from Kabayan Bank, worth 5,000.00, which is three (3) months to pay 1 cycle, next cycle 10,000, next is 15,000, then 25,000, the next one is 35,000, present is 50,000. To be finished this January 16, 2009. I bought a motorcycle Suzuki 150cc in installment basis. I sell fresh fish, fresh eggs and nestle products.

And later on, I attached a sidecar to my motorcycle as a rolling store. Kabayan Bank nominates me to Citi Foundation because of my excellent record in paying my weekly payment. Luckily I won a special award worth 50,000, a trophy, and a 4 days stay in Orchid Garden Suite. Judges are Henry Sy, Lucio Tan, Governor of Banko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP). All of this blessings I claim are the answer og God to my prayers. As of now, I am a church board member and my daughter, Ellen, will graduate this coming March, 2009. My wife Magdalena Andres works as a family cook in Pasay to support the schooling of our daughter. I will continue to serve our Creator as my covenant to Him.

And we are also invited by the US Ambassador to the Philippines, Madam Cristy Cheeney at the Manila Hotel.


I wanted to share with you the story of Mang Elino Andres. This was publish on the 14th issue of our newsletter in time with the celebration of our 6th GIPAP Anniversary. Hoping to read your story here.


I made this blog so that our members and caregivers as well as our friends, share what they feel and how they deal with everyday life. If you want to write your poems or share your thoughts or jokes you encounter, your life story, feel free to publish it in our forum and I'll put it here too.

    Dear God
    Life Story
    Life Tips

    Semptember is
    Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

    It is an opportunity to

    Honor the courage of kids/teens with cancer and their families

    Offer much-needed recognition and support to kids with cancer and their families It is a reminder for everyone...

    Children can have cancer. Metro Manila cancer registry records in three hospitals, show that eight kids/one very 3 hours, die everyday.
    Many more cases and deaths remain unreported

    Childhood cancer strikes randomly, unexpectedly, regularly, sparing no age group, socioeconomic status, ethnic group or geographic region. Children as young as a few months, barely able to talk and walk, can already have cancer

    Children can survive cancer, with early diagnosis and prompt, adequate treatment. In developed countries, childhood cancer survival rate is as high as 95%.
    In the Philippines, sadly,
    it is only 10to 30%.
    Of ten who are diagnosed, only two/three will most
     likely survive. They die because they are poor,
     unable to afford the high costs of medication and treatment

     It is a call to action:
    Work Together
    to help neighbors, classmates, and colleagues whose lives may be burdened by childhood cancer

    Working together we can help them FACE and BEAT Cancer. We can give them the greatest gift of all ---
    a chance to live fully --
    to have a future

    So please,

    There are so many ways you can help.

    Post this message in your bulletin boards,
    in your churches, at school,
    at work, in your barangay halls/ community centers,
    in your blogs or home pages
    Pledge any amount to
    help buy medicines for kids with cancer. As little as
    P 250.00 will go a long
    way to save a life

    Let your church leaders, media friends and elected officials know. One child/teen die every three hours because they are too poor to afford the high cost of cancer treatment.

    Ask them to

    Sponsor a child for a minimum of P5,000 a month. You can do this with your family, group of friends or co-workers    

    Sponsor an event /
    Make CWFI your beneficiary
    in special events in your church, school or neighborhood

    Write an article,
    a story or a letter to the editor on the situation of
    kids with cancer –
    the forgotten, neglected children of our society

    Buy and/or sell
    CWFI love gifts
    (gold ribbon magnets,
    key chains, pins,
    eco friendly bags, t-shirts)

    Endorse CWFI to a
    possible sponsor.
     100% of funds raised go to treatment of poor kids
     with cancer

    Take time.
    Be a volunteer.
    Be a Cancer Warrior

    Help raise funds
    from others throw aways:
    old newspapers, used paper, toys, books etc.


    Request for your very own coin banks of hope
    (Alkansya nang Pag-Asa)

    Celebrate your special moments
    (birthdays, anniversaries, yearly employee events, school fairs)
    with kids with cancer.

    Moments of fun help bring some joy and relaxation in their pain wracked lives
