Celebrating Christmas at the National Orthopedic Center

 Every year, my friend, Eric, invites me to join his Christmas party.  He has such a kind heart for doing this for the kids every year. Thank you Eric for making many kids happy every Christmas

I was never able to make it till this year.  I have not given much time to my foundation, so I took advantage and joined him in his celebration at the Philippine Orthopedic Center!
