Mio The Artist

In 2009, little Mio (who was just 5 at that time) was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. His mother Jasmine, a makeup artist and stylist, was a batchmate of mine in Ateneo. News about Mio’s battle with cancer spread like wildfire through text, email, and facebook. And it was just so wonderful to witness such an outpour of support for this little fella, both emotional and financial, from all over the country. Two years later, his battle against the BIG C is still on..but each day, our brave little Mio is proving to the world that he is indeed a CHAMPION! You can read more about Mio’s amazing journey here.
One of Mio’s many talents, is drawing 🙂 With the help of my bff Alessa Libongco-Lanot, a freelance graphic artist, Mio now has a special art project called THE MIO ALPHABET. This art collaboration is a way for the Mendiolas to raise funds for Mio’s continuous medical treatment. Since the BER months are officially here and Christmas is just around the corner, maybe these  MIO ALPHABET Greeting Cards and Vinyl Stickers might just be the sweet, personalized gifts you’ve been looking for. These items are reasonably priced with 100% of the proceeds going to Mio’s cancer treatment.
