Dialysis patient does not share opinion on Kalayaan Run mess
ATTY. ROLAND SALAZAR, Baguio City

This has to do with the letter allegedly sent by the BGH Dialysis Patients, Watchers, Doctors and Nurses, which appeared in the Aug. 26, 2018 issue of the Courier.

I am also a dialysis patient of Baguio General Hospital, but I do not share the same opinion as the one who wrote that letter.

First of all, the generalization that all the BGH dialysis patients signed the letter is erroneous. I did not give my consent to the writing of that letter. Whoever wrote that letter should not make it appear that everybody (BGH dialysis patients and watchers) participated in the writing of that letter, when in truth and in fact, neither me, nor my wife’s, who is also a watcher, consent were obtained, so as to generally include us as signatories to that letter. 

I am not like the other BGH dialysis patients, who are bitter and sore losers because they did not receive a single centavo from the proceeds of the Kalayaan Trail run organized by the P7 group. “Saanac nga agraraman ti kuwarta nga diak nagrigatan.”

The one who wrote the letter about the P7 group should have obtained the consent of all the patients before signing the letter as “BGH dialysis patients, etc.”

Worse, they managed to get my wife to sign the letter by making it appear that it was a petition for free dialysis. They did not tell her that she was signing a letter that was to be published in the local papers, the Courier included.

To my fellow patients, move on. There is no use being bitter and crying over spilled milk. The fact that you have been griping over not being able to receive any money from the proceeds of the Kalayaan Trail Run, is already a source of embarrassment because people are beginning to think that “sobra namang kapal ng mukha natin pagdating sa pagpapalimos ng pera.”

As I always say: ”Ipagpasa Diyos n’yo na ‘yan.” Karma always balances out injustices.

To make things clear: Not everybody shares the bitterness and opinion of those behind the letter.
