2 kidney patients receive P20,000 financial support
by Ramon Dacawi

A miner’s son who grew up as a bootblack and golf  caddy in Lepanto Mines, Mankayan, Benguet last week reached out to where he spent his boyhood to prop up anew a miner whose family is beset with misfortune.

Now based in Germany as a leading instructor of the Japan Karate Association, Julian Chees last week sent P20,000, half of which was given to 36-year old miner Romeo Garcia who is facing medical and financial woes far beyond his capacity to handle.

The other half of the amount was given to the mother of 12-year old Evan Mike Bogsit who is undergoing expensive twice-a-week hemodialysis for life due kidney failure.

“I grew up in Lepanto where I shined shoes and dragged golf club bags taller than me and can easily relate with this miner whose suffering is beyond the ordinary,” Chees said last week when he sent the support amount through foundation secretary Renate Doth and this writer.

Earlier, Chees, a former world champion in kata, the formal exercise of traditional karate, sent an initial P10,000 after learning of the series of tests besetting Garcia’s family.

Earlier this year, Garcia lost his wife Jane (nee Lamlamag) to kidney failure after she failed to undergo dialysis due to fund lack.

Jane was buried in her hometown Bauko, Mountain Province. She left behind seven-year old daughter Princess Arcia, who is undergoing chemotherapy for leukemia (cancer of the blood), and four-year old daughter Cathy Sy, who is stricken with epilepsy.

She left behind husband Romeo who, a few weeks after her death, was also diagnosed for end-stage renal failure and is now undergoing twice a week hemodialysis.

Dialysis patient Bogsit, on the other hand, is a vegetable farmer’s son whose father was forced to bring the family of five children to La Trinidad, Benguet to be closer to where the kid is undergoing twice-a-week treatment.

People out there who want to take the cue from Julian may ring up Romeo through cell phone number 0910-111-6578 and Evan through his sister’s number – 0910-267-0269.
