Lawrence already had his corneal transplant and is recuperating very well. The eight year old boy is now having his preliminanry work-ups.

The president of Sta Lucia Eye Bank, Dr Menguita Padilla, expressed and lauded AJ's parents decision to donate their son's cornea. The same words of appreciation were heard from the recipients: " AJ may not be with us physically but his presence will be felt as he continue to touch the lives of these two special people.

For the record Miko Soto, Jay Ilagan and Angelo, (the son of Cesar Montano), Edward James (Toni Rose Gaida's son ) are among the famous movie personalities who died but donated their corneas to the Eye Bank. (all photos are copyright to its rightful owners.)
