expressions of impressions

Dra. Mae gratefully receiving the donation
from Bobong Cutiongco
Last October 21, I was blessed to be part of a team of wonderful people from GRoUP Singapore (GRaduates of UP), Bobong Cutiongco, Joni Ferrier and Joyce Gicanal. 


Documenting their tour of  Southern Phils. Medical Center (SPMC) & turnover of the donation from GRoUP, Espesyal Pinoy, and Triskelion Singapore to the Kids of Hope in the SPMC was an amazing experience for me. 
 
What moved me were 1st: the stories of Dra. Mae Dolando on the fortunate current condition of the cancer patients from the hospital’s private supporters compared to years before. 2nd: on how slowly but surely her dream of improving the lives of the children and teen-agers living with cancer is coming. 3rd: the children, their doting parents and relatives.  

Dra. Mae
Dra. Mae is the lead paediatric oncologist at Davao Medical Centre who is also the project leader of the funding programme to improve survival rates of children with cancer. She is one of the founding members of Kids of Hope. Not an easy task but her passion to make a difference in the lives of the children, parents, team and supporters propels her.

Yes, there is still a lot of funding and volunteer work that needs to be done but through collaboration with different supporters, we will get there faster. Kids of Hope is an information education project of the Davao Children’s cancer Fund Inc. Do contact them

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a
40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely
off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Definitely consider that which you stated. Your favourite justification seemed to be on the web the easiest thing to be
aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed even as people think about concerns that they
just do not realize about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and outlined out the whole thing without having side effect , other
folks could take a signal. Will probably be back to
get more. Thank you
