Who is deserving?

I didn't get into the top 12 ( very beauty pageant naman ang dating ) for the Lasik giveaway.. sad kasi I'm sure my dad would be really happy to get the surgery. But after reading through all the entries of the top 12 chosen entries , I realized na maybe they really need it more than me. Sabi din siguro ni lord.. hellooo anim kayong magkakapatid aba pagipunan niyo no! hehe

Here are the Top 12 candidates and a little insight of why they need the surgery..

Tia - second year medical student, she broke her eyeglasses and her dad had to fix it with a screw driver.

Elsie Quinto – she doesn’t have facebook and had hesitations of joining, but when I changed the mechanics she joined for her 56 year old social worker mother.

Ramon Monteclaro Sawit – now in his 50’s and would like to be able to say “why did I wait so long.” To prove that it’s never too late.

Lara Gozum – single mother of 7year old, wrote a short entry with no drama. She has astigmatism and her prescription goes as high as 875.

Cris Pablico-Alano – new mom to a 6 month old baby, she joined last year’s LASIK giveaway too, now trying her luck again. She wants to be able to breastfeed her baby without having to look for her glasses first.

Che – for her 59 year old father who she promised to help. They are now focusing on helping him get dentures.

Karla F Santos – she’s been wearing glasses since she was 6 y.o. and she has delivered 3 babies via CS while not wearing glasses. She wasn’t even able to see the faces of her babies clearly.

Hazel T – 33 year old mother of a 5 y.o. son. A recent cancer survivor.

Ria Cabral dela Cruz – for her husband she calls Mr Frugal. He hasn’t changed his eye glasses in over 8 years.

Gerry Torres – works in design and art. Has had many fears including LASIK. He just conquered his fear of driving and said “why did I wait so long?” Funny stories about contact lenses flying off and getting lost inside his eye. I can relate to everything he said.

Thysz – short entry but said he sees the world in “bokeh” haha.

Kristine Santos – OFW from Libya, now home after losing their work due to conflict in Libya.

Nakakalungkot kasi only one of them has the chance to win the 100k worth of Lasik Surgery ( sana ung cancer survivor ) but I really wish them all good luck!

As for me.. oh well.. better luck next time! :)
