Philippine National Museum and Beyond

How many of us have ever been visited our National Museum? I've been to many museums in our country and in some foreign museums but I must confess, I am one of those who have not been to our National Museum.

I once watched on television the GMA7's TV documentary about National Treasures. I thought to myself, why I haven't visited the National Museum of the Philippines ever? Curiosity got me and I told myself that one day I will  go and check what's inside. Opportunity came when the National Museum administration announced that for the whole month of October, the museum will be  open to public for FREE. This opportunity should not be missed. 

On October 26, 2012, I visited the National Museum of the Philippines and the Luneta which I discovered for the first time that there was a big Magellan's statue in the park (lol!) and the actual execution site Dr. Jose P. Rizal. (pasens'ya, tao lang. limitado ang kalaalaman sa sariling bayan, hahaha!)

Livestrong Day Philippines: Believe in Life

In the Philippines, cancer is the third leading cause of death. Yet there are very little cancer prevention programs or consciousness programs. What does this mean? With little awareness or concern, for your relative, friend, officemate or you, this may mean, recognizing it too late, diagnosing too late or less chances of surviving. In the Philippines, cancer survival rates are low.

Team Philippines Benefitting LIVESTRONG works to change these facts because we know we live in a society where change can easily be done. But we just need your support. In our society, spreading knowledge is about creating the numbers, coming together as one group of individuals who empower each other, and demand change.  Think about your friend or family member, or that story you heard from someone else – those people who have faced cancer, are fighting cancer or whose lives were forever changed by cancer. They are the people we are coming together for.
