All smiles as we honor our angel the best way we can imagine. Together with our family, we started the Luna Isabel Magalona-Bacarro Memorial Fund and we launched our first project with @kythefoundation’s Child Life Program today. Kythe’s long-time partner hospital, Quirino Memorial Medical Center, has named their pediatric playroom after Luna and the fund will help pay for the staff and materials to make sure the children get ample play time. Volunteer and/or donate in cash or kind (toys! activity books! coloring materials!) by visiting kythe.org ❤️
