Showing Real Love in our fight against Cancer

By Sai

Cancer is a very painful disease. I remember my Lola Mamay's suffering when she had Cirrhosis. Our whole family stood by her side. We can't show an ounce of sadness and pain in front of her because we're all trying to be strong for her. She died last August 2, 2010. I was on my way home when my Mama Nang texted me, "Wala na si Lola" (Lola's gone) and I cried. I know how painful it is to lose someone who's really dear to you.

We are actually fortunate these days that various cancer awareness campaigns are everywhere. We get to know how to prevent Cancer and some information about the disease. I was lucky to attend a seminar before about fighting Cancer. I actually felt so bad when I saw kids with Cancer. Their innocent smiles carry hope and inspiration for all of us.

WE NEED YOUR HELP TOO!

Ms. Janette Toral of InfluentialBlogger.net asked me if I can help her spread Real Love's Campaign. Of course, I said yes. This is the least that I can do to help and we need your help too!

Kythe Foundation was founded by Maria Fatima Garcia-Lorenzo and Icar Castro, both psychology graduates from Ateneo. It is a non-stock, non-profit organization that provides psychological support to pediatric cancer patients. It spearheaded the Child Life Program, which aims to uplift and give hope to kids with cancer and their families through education and developmental activities enable them to be more knowledgeable of their illness and experience different hands on activities.


In partnership with Unilever Foodsolutions, Kythe provides fun activities to pediatric cancer patients. There are different sets of activities prepared for every outreach program. It's a good thing Unilever Foodsolutions give hope to these kids. It helps them fill their hearts with joy, fun and courage to face every challenge they'll meet in their own fight against Cancer.

Unilever Foodsolutions also partnered with Team Manila to design a limited edition shirt, which will be available in Team Manila outlets in Rockwell, SM Mall of Asia, Trinoma and in Team Manila's website. The Real Love shirt is priced at Php550. Part of the proceeds of the sale will go to Kythe Foundation. This will help kids in their medical operations.
