Making Miracles Happen for Mikhail

 

 

Mikhail lives in one of Kalipay Foundation’s adopted communities, the Alberto Balcells Hope Village- Gawad Kalinga in Talisay City, Negros Occidental. Despite being born a normal kid, at the age of three, Mikhail slowly deteriorated physically. He was not able to walk properly from then on and was confined to a wheelchair most of the time. Eventually, Mikhail lost his eyesight, too. After several consultations with neuropediatricians in the city, Mikhail remains in this debilitating state.


What makes us fight for Mikhail is his happy disposition notwithstanding his condition. He remains positive in his attitude and behavior towards people, greeting them with a ready smile even though he cannot see them. He communicates by touching.


Mikhail is well-loved and well-cared for by his family, especially his grandmother, Rosalinda. Lola Rosalinda has been Mikhail’s source of strength, and in turn, Mikhail is Lola Rosalinda’s life. One can see the genuine and selfless love that this grandmother has for her grandson, so moving that it has encouraged Kalipay to do everything to save a beautiful soul, that it might live a beautiful life.


With the help of kind and supportive volunteers like Gonzalo Erize from Argentina and his friends, Mikhail and Lola Rosalinda have been brought to Manila so that Mikhail can undergo various medical interventions to determine what really is his illness. At present, Mikhail’s working diagnosis is Neurodegenerative White Mater Disease probably Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis Versus Adrenoleukodystrophy cannot totally rule out Mitochondrial Disease. This disease has a ratio of 1:10,000 making it very rare.


Aside from this diagnosis, Mikhail’s doctors are now treating his pneumonia. A nasogastric tube (NGT) has also been inserted to prevent aspiration and to facilitate feeding and medication.


Kalipay Negrense Foundation is now asking your kind hearts to help Mikhail. It is a long road for Mikhail but with your help, his pain will be alleviated. Any assistance will be very much appreciated.

Vice Ganda brings joy

 

 

 

Vice Ganda brings joy

By Carla Gomez

 

Box office star Vice Ganda staged a three-hour concert filled with nonstop laughter and music before a c rowd of about 6,000 at the University of St. La Salle Coliseum in Bacolod City Sunday night.

 

The performer sang to an appreciative and cheering crowd, and stopped for selfies with the audience without missing a beat.

 

The “Vice Gandang Ganda Sa Sarili sa Bacolod!” was staged for the benefit of Kalipay Negrense Foundation Inc., a non-profit organization that provides disadvantaged children with shelter, food, healthcare and education.

 

Anna Balcells, Kalipay founder and president, said she did not realize that Vice Ganda, aside from being a comedian, also has a beautiful voice. She said the songs he sang were geared towards inspiring people to believe in their selves.

 

Before the show, Vice Ganda asked to meet with the people behind Kalipay, its volunteers and children.

 

He was very loving, cool and kind to the children, and showed that he really cared, Balcells said.

 

Balcells said they are thankful to the comedian for being a truly loving and caring person.

 

Also performing with Vice Ganda were comedians MC and Lassi and performer Rayver Cruz.

 

The Negros producer of the show brought to Bacolod City by ABS-CBN, JCI, TSE Live and Valley of Peace was Mhel Sillador. *CPG
