MOTLEY| Let’s Dance for Life!

“LET LIGHT shine bright on someone else’s life,” this statement rang loud last Saturday at the UM Embassy Gymnasium as the Cancer Warriors Foundation, Inc. – Parents Fellowship Mindanao in cooperation with the Mary Immaculate Health & Educational Family (MIHEF) and the University of Mindanao Community Extension Office organized a fund-raising activity for the benefit of the cancer warrior children of the CWF-Parents Fellowship Mindanao.

The charity activity started with a formal program recognizing the cancer warrior kids who were able to finish their medications successfully and became official cancer survivors. Parents and loved ones of cancer warrior kids were present to give their support for their children during the activity, which was likewise spearheaded by CWF-PFM President, Mr. Roland “Jappy” Fernandez.
