Raising money for Doc Poch

It was recently brought to our attention that our beloved Dean, Dr Poch, was recently diagnosed with tibial bone tumor (osteochondroma with malignant potential) of his right tibia.  I’m appealing for your kind generosity once again to help me raise funds to help with his treatment in the Philippines.  Please know that no amount is too small. Thank you in advance for your continued generosity and support. Much ❤️!

Please see post below from one of the EAC faculty member Dennis Tongko.

“I would like to request for your humanitarian and financial assistance and your fervent prayers in behalf of Dr. Pocholo Trinidad. I would like to appeal that he has recently been diagnosed with tibial bone tumor (Osteochondroma with malignant potential) of his right tibia. I am strongly appealing for your kind generosity in helping me raise funds for expenses which his treatment will incur with the cost of surgery, post-op surgical rehab. and post-op treatment back home in the Phil. His university in Bahrain has just retired him from his academic duties at the same time the diagnosis was given last August. He is determined to fully recover and the financial assistance and collective prayers will enable him to fulfill this goal while in the Philippines where he will be staying for good. I appeal for your whole-hearted support and generosity in his personal journey as he starts his surgery, oncology and rehabilitation treatment in the Phil. Please get in touch with me through my FB and Messenger for details. You can also personally message him directly.Thank you in advance and God bless!”
