I have some friends and acquaintances who are suffering from cancer. Some have gone and some are still struggling to live the good life they deserve. It is always puzzling to me how people get cancer. I would always wonder what if I already have it but still not aware that I have it. It is dangerous to think of the possibility because study would say that cancer strikes at the most unexpected time and place. There would be cancer of which the causes are evident, like something related to smoking, drinking, stress, environment, virus, etc. But there are cancers that hit even the healthiest, liveliest and nicest individual. Nobody can really tell. Perhaps only God knows the reasons behind every person's story.

One pastor in our church even said in one Sunday service about 4 years ago, "The reason why you are sick is not because you have committed a sin or did something wrong." I held on to that statement because some people believe that committing a sin equals sickness/suffering.

It is also heartbreaking to see kids, in their innocence and at a very young age, to be stricken with cancer. I would always shed tears whenever a story on this subject would be featured on TV. I would think that life is sometimes unfair. They have not enjoyed life to the fullest and now, their days are numbered. I just wish that there would be a definite cure for all kinds of illnesses, and that treatments would be very affordable for everyone.

How can we show love and care to kids with cancer? You can do your part by clicking LIKE on the Real Love Campaign's Facebook Page. For every LIKE the page receives equals 1 sandwich to be given to the kids. The target is to hit 10,000 LIKEs so that 10,000 sandwiches can be prepared by Unilever Foodsolutions.

This Real Love Campaign is being supported by Kythe Foundation. Its vision is to improve the quality of life of pediatric patients by uplifting kids' spirits and empowering hope in this children and their families. Kythe Foundation also specializes in promoting optimum growth, development and helping the kids cope with the challenge of hospitalization.

I will share my love to the kids of Kythe by being an inspiration to them and other people as well. I will share the Real Love campaign to everyone, praying that more donors and volunteers will open themselves to this cause. I would be a PhP100 Miracle Worker!

I would also take time to listen to the kids’ hearts and hold their hands. I’ll read with them stories filled with acceptance, hope and happy endings.

All I have is a camera and could capture smiles, and hopes of this little children loved by God.

Also, my teaching skills will be a good helping hand too.

It would be my pleasure covering your events by contacting me through my FB account (

“I will share my love to the kids of Kythe by VOLUNTEERING, because it gives me an opportunity to change lives, including my own. If I’d like to support a cause but can’t afford to donate money, I can donate my time instead. I will show my love, my emotional caring and support to give the kid a secure base from which to explore the world, I will pray for them for their healing. Children fighting for their lives have very little to smile about. Sending words of encouragement and support to a cancer patient of any age can make a difference in their life, and have a beneficial effect on their recovery.”


keep on spreading the love guys! keep on spreading the real love campaign!

I will share my love to the kids of Kythe by increasing cancer awareness among my friends, peers and relatives. I believe that knowing cancer symptons, risk factors, undergoing early screening treatment will save lives.

I will share my love to the kids of Kythe by giving them what they need, TIME. This is the best opportunity to know more about these kids and spend quality time with them. It can be a simple story telling or a day out at the mall, not that expensive but I think they will like the experience since these kids don’t deserve the hardship they endure at a very young age.

They deserve to feel how to be a kid. Just like what ‘Kayth’ means (where they derived Kythe) it means healing through simple sharing and togetherness [Real Love Campaign]

It was kind of difficult to choose the winner because submitted entries are really good. And I think some have won already in this same Real Love campaign in other bloggers' contest.

So, I'd like to announce that the winner of my Real Love campaign is (drum roll)..... EMILIANA SISON (a.k.a. Luckyfinds):

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in this advocacy campaign. :)
