On his birthday, President Benigno S. Aquino III paid a visit to two of the patients admitted in the Philippine Orthopedic Center in Quezon City.
Jericho Navarro Rafols is a 15-year old boy who has been suffering from bone cancer. It was in 2010 when he had been diagnosed with the disease. “Importante nagdadasal tayo, tuluy-tuloy lang,” said the President as he encouraged the boy to not lose hope.
Mario Maniego, on the other hand, is a paralyzed man who had fallen from a wall back in 1996. After an operation, he had been solely dependent on mechanical ventilation.
