Here is the latest fund-raising update

From the admins of the Facebook group:

An unaudited count of Iggy’s transplant fund reveals that we have already raised PHP2.5 million! Combined with a surplus of PHP500,000 from the NKTI/chemo fund, the Villanuevas have PHP3 million to use for the transplant. Barring a protracted search for a marrow donor (and more chemo sessions), we only have PHP2 million more to go!

Despite the progress, all seems disturbingly quiet in the fund-raising front. With the exception of two (maybe three) separate efforts to hold benefit concerts, not much else is happening.

May we remind all those who had finished their fundraisers to finish their auditing and turn over the proceeds to the Villanuevas?

Can we also get updates on the other teams, like Team USA and Team Dumaguete?

In the meantime, if you are connected with companies like San Miguel, PDI or ABS-CBN, we encourage you to help us get drink sponsors for the concert/s. If you’d like to volunteer for the production and coordination, let us know, too. This is your chance to be a groupie for a cause.

Iggy is getting out of the hospital!

Great news indeed.

Occasionally, he will report to NKTI (or St. Luke’s) for outpatient treatment. One such procedure will probably be chemotherapy, which Iggy will continue to receive every month, until the doctors find a new bone marrow donor.

Essentially, from here on, it’s a waiting game for Iggy. The best we can do is to pray that a marrow donor is found soon, and to keep up the fundraising efforts.

Fundraiser info: The Business Management Society of DLSU is organizing another garage sale. If you would like to support their event by donating new or pre-owned items, please get in touch with Alex (09063425616).
