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.

    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,
    GET INVOLVED.
    KIDS SHOULD NOT FIGHT CANCER ALONE.

    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
    DO SOMETHING TO
    STOP THE DYING

    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

    CWFI love gifts
    (gold ribbon magnets,
    key chains, pins,
    eco friendly bags, t-shirts)

    possible sponsor.
     100% of funds raised go to treatment of poor kids
