It must be very difficult for a child to experience a very serious illness earlier on in life. I can only imagine what they have to go through + what their parents have to go through to make sure they stay healthy + well. Having a sick child can be very taxing + heartbreaking to any parent or family. That is why it is a must that we do our share to help them in what little way we can. Mum came across Carlisle + his mum through their common friends online. He was diagnosed with brain tumor + to help fund his treatments + medications, her mum thought of putting up the Dinner For Carlisle event on 27 September, 2014. Buffet 101 Eastwood branch will be hosting a dinner-for-a-cause event for Carlisle. The #DinnerForCarlisle buffet is priced at Php 1,100 for adults and Php 600 for kids 3.5 ft and above. Children below the height limit is considered free of charge. Part of the sales will be for Carlisle’s hospital funds. Dinner starts at 5:30 PM.
If you have no plans for the weekend, make sure to go there + help Carlisle’s mum.

You can also read about his story here:
Carlisle Von Patrick was born as a healthy bouncing baby boy on the morning of March 31st, 2012. Being a single mom who carried him for the whole nine months by myself, I was so overwhelmed that he came out as healthy as I prayed for. Crying out loud, rosy cheeks, birthmark. Everything seems to be perfect. I make sure that he’ll not be hurt, no insect will bite him. He was present on monthly check-ups, up-to-date with his vaccines.
On his fourth month, my world froze when we rushed him to ER due to viral meningitis. I thought that would be the end of my unexplainable happiness in life, but thank God that my boy survived.
Series of follow-ups and tests were done and since then, we were in and out of the hospital due to his inconsistent nausea, vomiting, and fever. Doctors thought that his meningitis came back, until one decided to do cranial ultrasound on him, and everything weakens me after that.
Carlisle Von Patrick has been diagnosed with Craniopharyngioma (brain tumor) last February 2013 after his MRI procedure and went on brain surgery to remove the tumor last June 2013 at University of Santo Tomas Hospital. His life was saved, but his eyesight wasn’t. He’s undergoing constant follow up checks to maintain healthy living. Last update that we had is he needs to go for another surgery because the tumor is getting bigger again.
#WearGreyForCarlisle shirts can also be ordered for P400. Sizes ranges from XS to 3XL.
