Real-life celebrity couple Judy Ann Santos and RyanAgoncillo, together with TV host TJ Manotoc, give support to Cancer Warriors—anon-profit organization that raises awareness and funds for children with cancer.
Judy Ann said that she wanted to help because of what she foundout about the unfortunate Filipino kids who are fighting the Big C. She explained, "We were so shockedto learn that survival rates for childhood cancer is much lower in thePhilippines than it is in developed countries. We only learned now that most cancers in children are treatable—kidshere just don't have money for treatment."
The three celebrities will help in promoting the Bike for Lifeproject—the flagship project of Cancer Warriors—through radio endorsements thatare currently being aired on Radio Partners and Crossover stations (in thesefollowing FM frequencies: 101.9, 88.3, 89.9, 99.5, 103.5).
"It's the least we can do. We can only hope to have the kindof courage these kids have," said Ryan.
Bike for Life is a two-week bike journey from Manila toDavao, which will be led by cancer survivors and parents of children withcancer. The said bike journey will make a stopover in 15 towns and cities to raise awareness on the importance of early detectionand treatment for kids with such disease.
