Girl needs help
for eye operation

The cloudy right cornea of four-year-old Janelle Torres, of Bakyas, Brgy. Mansilingan, Bacolod City needs to be removed, and her parents are seeking help as they have no money for the operation.

Janelle is the daughter of Estenel Duremdes, 40, a jobless housewife, and Benjamin Torres, 39, a construction worker.

Her parents had earlier sought help from DAILY STAR readers for the head CT scan of their daughter. It was shouldered by the Dr. Pablo O. Torre Memorial Hospital in Bacolod City, and facilitated by Luisa Henares.

Results of the CT scan revealed increased density of the vitreous humor of the right globe with no evident calcifications within. The optic nerve-sheath complex is slightly thickened compared to the left, and the extra-ocular muscles on the right are not thickened, the CT scan results further showed.

Medical records also show that at four months old, the patient was noted to have a white yellowish spot on the center of her right eye pupil.

Any assistance for Janelle may be given through the DAILY STAR office.*

As the calendar marks the end of summer vacation, Western Visayas students excitedly returned to school this month.

With another cycle of exams, home works, and other school activities coming up, their energy is boosted with the newest chocolate powdered drink from Universal Robina Corporation, Captain Choco, a press release from the management said.

During recess, students can reach for their chocolate-y Captain Choco drink, and be energetic, alert and healthy throughout the day.

A mother from Barangay San Juan beams as she puts Captain Choco powdered chocolate drink in her shopping cart, the press release said.

“My kids have been drinking Captain Choco since we first saw it in the supermarket. They drink it during meals and even bring it to school,” Mommy Jade said.

“I have no problem because it is very affordable, P4 only! I can also easily prepare it for breakfast or for baon with its convenient 3-in-1 mix – no need to add sugar and milk. And the best part is, Captain Choco is flexible because it can be dissolved easily in both hot and cold water,” she said.

She also cited Captain Choco’s nutritional benefits as a great bonus for her kids, the press release said.

Captain Choco has VitaProtect, which improves vision, increases metabolism and helps the immune system. It also has Zero Gram Trans Fat for good cholesterol build up.

Captain Choco is already available with its 20g and 150g pack in leading groceries, supermarkets, sari-sari stores and public markets, the press release added.*
