What is a perfect birthday gift to oneself?

Celebrating birthdays is one of the most welcome and exciting milestones in a person’s life. You can celebrate in a fancy restaurant with family, or buy the latest electronic gadget. There are many choices for sure.

Kythe Vice-president Mr. William Bayot chose to celebrate his birthday on August 17, 2019 with our patients and their families. Sir William’s wish was to give hope and joy to our patients during his special day.

Sir William’s birthday also marked the grand launch of Kythe’s newest merchandise called “Caps of Courage. ” All proceeds of the sale will be used to assist patients for their medical treatment.

We hope Sir William’s birthday-celebration story inspires many people who wish to help, and make an impact in the lives of pediatric cancer patients.

Ang Chinitong Superhero
sa panulat ni Bec Aguilar

Pag binanggit ang salitang superhero
Agad nakasuot ng kapa ang naiisip ko
O di kaya may matipunong katawan na nakamaskara
Pwede din naman na may sasakyang magara

Ang superhero para sa mga bata sa Kythe ay kakaiba
Ito ay ang mismong mga magulang nila
Ang mga ate at kuya sa ospital na nangangalaga sa kanila
At higit sa lahat ang mga taong nagbabahagi ng kanilang biyaya

Ngayon naturuan ako ng mga bata
Pwede palang ang superhero ay walang kapa
Kahit karaniwang tao na handang tumulong sa kapwa
Higit pa kay superman na ating kilala

Gusto kong ipaalam may superhero akong natuklasan
Wala syang sapot o letrang S sa katawan
Handa syang tumulong kaninuman
Sekreto lang natin ito.. Sir William ang kanyang pangalan…

Saturday fun day with our PPD Pharmaceutical Devt. Phils. friends

One of our sponsors, PPD, spent a day full of giggles, laughter and high energy with our Kythe kids and their parents. There were food booths like the traditional taho and sweet corn, which fueled our kids with energy for the morning activities. The event was not just a simple gathering. It was also an opportunity for PPD employees to engage and experience our advocacy: to make room for happiness and bring healing through simple sharing and togetherness.

As we know, events like these are a welcome break for the Kythe kids and parents. This is a break from their usual routine of being hospitalized, undergoing treatment, check-up and procedures. People with positive energy alleviate the stress of kids and parents.

We thank our PPD friends for a day filled with happiness and positive vibes.
