AWCP Halloween Event

 

Dear Friends of Kalipay and AWCP,

 

 

The 2017 AWCP annual charity event is guaranteed to be a "spook-tacular" evening with a Halloween Charity PARTY! on Saturday, October 14, 2017 at the Fairmont Raffles Makati Hotel. We anticipate over 225 attendees who will enjoy dinner, dancing, a silent auction and raffle, along with Halloween entertainment and prizes for the best costumes.


 

In addition to a fun-filled evening, the 2017 Halloween Charity PARTY! will support the Kalipay Negrense Foundation, an organization working to improve the lives of disadvantaged children including those who are homeless, physically and sexually abused, malnourished, victims of child trafficking and labor, foundlings. Based in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental, Kalipay offers hope by providing shelter, food, healthcare, counseling, and education.

 

Thank you and we look forward to your anticipation in the 2017 AWCP Halloween Ball.

 

 

 
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

 

 
Gerald Medical Bulletin 4

 

Dear Friends,

 

I am rejoicing to share with all of you that after 16 days of admission at Corazon Locsin Montelibano Regional Hospital, our dear Gerald has finally been discharged. Everything seems to be very well with him. He is very much ambulatory and able to take care of himself. He was prescribed to continue his anti-biotics for 7 more days. Since the doctor did not provide diet restrictions, Gerald can now finally enjoy eating his food (burger).

During his admission, his older brother (Rojun) and younger sister (Gerren) have really been helpful in taking care of Gerald.

 

Thank you very much for journeying with us in bringing joy to Gerald. I am still at awe with your kind help and generosity of spirit. Please continue to be hopeful with us for a favorable biopsy result for Gerald.

 

Love, Anna

 

 
Gerald Medical Bulletin 3

 

Dear Friends,

 

Four Days after the operation, Gerald is doing well. Last Friday, his Intravenous Line was changed to heplock but he is still on Epidural Catheter with Ongoing drip of Ropivacaine to control pain with the attached Chest Thoracotomy Tube (CTT). Dr. Manlapao initially planned to remove his CTT last Saturday but he postponed it given that there were still secretions being drained.


Though he had a low fever last Friday, but it was managed well. He has no diet restrictions and is encouraged to ambulate time to time. As per our inquiry, the Biopsy result will be released within 7-14 days.


Let us continue to hope for best for our dear Gerald.

 

Love,

Anna

 
Gerald Medical Bulletin 2

 

 

Dear Friends,


I am deeply humbled from all the support you have extended to Gerald. Our dear Gerald had his surgery earlier today at 7:30 am. He was placed under general anaesthesia through inhalation. The surgery was originally scheduled last Wednesday, but due to unavailability of the room to be used post-operatively, the doctor recommended to postpone the procedure to today.


The pulmonary mass has been removed without the need of lobectomy. We are very thankful to the professionalism extended by Dr. Norman Manlapao and Dr. Dominador Nalumen and the team of nurses of CLMMRH who are taking care of Gerald.


Presently Gerald is in the Recovery Room attached to a Chest Thoracotomy Tube. Let’s continue to pray Gerald’s Recovery and for a favorable biopsy result.

 


Love,

Anna
