Kcat is one of my schoolmates in Don Bosco School, Sta. Mesa. She is a batch higher than me. She was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2) in August 2004 and from then on struggling with all the complications of her ailment. However, despite of these challenges she’s encountering in her life, she remains to be positive in life and believes that while there is life, there is hope.
Her article This journey called life was featured in Manila Bulletin who definitely inspired a lot of people all over the world. Because of this, she was on the top of the list of Manila Bulletin’s Top 10 who can and already a contributor of MB’s Students and Campuses’ special education (Monday) issue.
Today’s column, Bayanihan and Baby Liam shares about Baby Liam‘s condition and is helping them raise fund for his treatments. The baby was born prematurely with a severe chronic lung disease. His family is now asking for help buy his medications to be able to survive.
GRACE BE BORN
Kathleen is one of my schoolmates in high school. She is celebrating her birthday this September. She finds joy in giving to the needy through the small projects she has joined in, so she decided to celebrate her birthday by doing a worthwhile project.
Her chosen beneficiary is “Grace Be Born Ministries”. It is a non-profit shelter for unwed mothers to be and abandoned babies. Currently, the ministry is in need of diapers, formula milk, feeding bottles, maternity and baby clothes, toiletries, and other household items. You may donate in goods and in kind, just visit: http://birthdays.kathmadula.com
Truly, she continues to inspire people and even extends her help to those who are also in need. A remarkable act of generosity is only one of the many impressive traits that you can find in Kcat. May we all be moved and be influenced by her great love and compassion of life.
