His Voice Sounded Like a Robot’s and His Story Will Inspire You

Many were surprised as a man whose voice sounded like a robot’s went up the altar during ABS-CBN’s Seven Last Words last March 25, 2016. The said man introduced himself as Engr. Emer Rojas, Global Cancer Ambassador and founder of New Vois Association of the Philippines (NVAP) Engr. Rojas soon explained why he had such a voice. He confessed that he lost his vocal cords due to stage 4 laryngeal cancer. He underwent an operation in 2003 and since then, he has used an assisting device that helped him have a voice. Despite everything, Engr. Rojas considered himself a lucky man. When he was diagnosed of cancer, he was told that he had only five years to live. He was also made aware that only 20% among stage 4 laryngeal cancer patients would usually survive.

Have you been thinking of trying Glutathione but are hesitant, wondering what its effect on your health would be? You have nothing to be worried about it, honestly.

It can also be used to treat and prevent alcoholism, asthma, cancer, heart ailments (including atherosclerosis and high cholesterol), hepatitis, liver disease, as well as diseases that attack the immune system.

REVIEW: The Body Spa and Waxing Lounge

Quezon City is always, always full of surprises. Apart from the restaurants along Maginhawa Street and the food stalls inside UP Diliman, Quezon City also doesn’t run out of go-to places for people who want to relax. In fact, we have found our new favorite spa in QC–The Body Spa and Waxing Lounge along Capitol Hills Drive. It’s a very cozy spa and it offers high-quality services at affordable rates. It also uses all-natural products, which are all proven to be safe and gentle on skin. Minette had the Premium Dead Sea Salt Therapy Treatment. This one-of-a-kind body spa treatment combined the luxurious scent of vanilla with the various skin care benefits of lavender and Dead Sea salt. It was also an intense exfoliation treatment paired with a premium mineral-rich marine mask that helped lighten, rejuvenate, and detoxified Minette’s skin. She also got a back massage after that treat. Meanwhile, I was able to try the Premium Signature Treatment. It was a 3-in-1 hand spa treatment that helped lighten, rejuvenate, and nourish my tired hands. …
