Real-life celebrity couple Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo, together with TV host TJ Manotoc, give support to Cancer Warriors—a non-profit organization that raises awareness and funds for children with cancer.
Judy Ann said that she wanted to help because of what she found out about the unfortunate Filipino kids who are fighting the Big C. She explained, "We were so shocked to learn that survival rates for childhood cancer is much lower in the Philippines than it is in developed countries. We only learned now that most cancers in children are treatable—kids here just don't have money for treatment."
The three celebrities will help in promoting the Bike for Life project—the flagship project of Cancer Warriors—through radio endorsements that are currently being aired on Radio Partners and Crossover stations (in these following 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 kind of courage these kids have," said Ryan.
Bike for Life is a two-week bike journey from Manila to Davao, which will be led by cancer survivors and parents of children with cancer. The said bike journey will make a stopover in 15 towns and cities to raise awareness on the importance of early detection and treatment for kids with such disease.
Registration will take place this Sunday, September 16, at 5:30 a.m. at the Alabang Town Center parking lot.
