MANILA, Philippines – A determined netizen has been gaining praises online after launching a campaign for his ill brother who is currently in a sickbed in the province of Sorsogon.
Jessie Halig, who is from the town of Magallanes in Sorsogon, is currently on a biking trek from Pasig City and started his journey last January 18.
In his Facebook post, Jessie said he is doing this for his sick brother named Rham.
“Magba bike ako para sayo kuya rham..Gusto ko lumaban ka..kaya mo yan..kaya natin..gagaling ka.. Padyak ko ito para sayo…” he wrote.
[I will travel by bicycle for you, my elder brother Rhan. I want you to fight. You can make it. We can make it together. You will recover. I’m doing this for you.]
Jessie reached Alaminos, Laguna hours later after starting from Manila last Tuesday. There, he was assisted by a group of bikers and the Bicolano lad said he’s very grateful.
As of Thursday, around 1:00 pm, he reached Naga City in Camarines Sur for a short lunch break. (Click here to read more)
