Rene is now in remission and is ready and willing to help the Foundation in whatever way he can.
Rene has been true to his word and commitment when he recently joined the EPCALM event (see related article – EPCALM explores areas of collaboration with NCI) last February 7, 2013 at the 5th Floor conference room of the St. Luke’s Medical Center (SLMC) located in Global City, where Rene shared his experiences while battling Leukemia and how the Foundation journeyed with him during this period.
After the event, Rene joined EPCALM in their first leg of patient visits to the hospitals because he wanted to touch base, bond and give encouragement and assurance to fellow Leukemia patient Paolo Luces, who is currently admitted in the Makati Medical Center (MMC) for ongoing chemo sessions.
What a joyful and generous heart! Please continue to pray for Rene while he is in remission. Next step for him is to generate funding for his Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT).

EPCALM will be starting individual fund drives (through this website) for EPCALM patients in the near future.
