We should have posted this sooner. One of our own has fallen seriously ill and needs all the help he can get.
About a month ago, Vergil Espinosa
was diagnosed with kidney failure and now needs to undergo dialysis four times a day. His cousin, Etey Buendia, has organised a fund-raiser for him called "Superhero Run for Daverge."

Another way to help is to send Verge comics to read or sketchpads to doodle on during his difficult treatment. Packages can be sent directly to his address: 78-B Don Ramon St., Talayan Village Q.C
Other artists, including Gerry Alanguilan (see www.flipgeeks.com/pinoy-komiks…
), are doing what they can to lend a hand. If you have other suggestions on how to help Verge for the long haul, we would be more than happy to hear them.
It's going to be a difficult and painful road ahead for our friend and colleague. Anything that would help Verge know that he's not alone, we would all be deeply grateful for.
