Raised in a poor family with 12 siblings, Love had no choice but to start to work in a young age for his survival. Until he was inspired and found his passion, Mixed Martial Arts. He trained day and night and master his art, Yaw-Yan. As a result, he won medals in his prime age, such as:
2002 URCC : Universal Reality Championship - Light Heavy_weight Champion (Said to be the fastest knock out and win on that event)
1992 Camp Crame Open Karate - Heavy-Weight Campion
1991 16th South East Asian Games (Bronze Medalist)
1989 PopePius Karate Championship
He was also a good father. With his humble profession, he was able to make us, his two daughters graduate college. One was a teacher, another one was a mass communication graduate.
He had a healthy lifestyle with no vices. Even at his 50's, he bikes around everyday and teach at least 2 sessions per day.
He touches life of a lot of people around him. One was turning a yard boy into a coach. At times teaching out of school youths in our community.
At the age of 52, sadly, he was diagnosed with Throat Cancer Stage 3. The once robust body became frail in three months. We tried different herbal medicines, but alas, his situation is getting worse. Lastly we seek medical advice. As per the doctors, he needs to undergo 8 sessions of chemotherapy for him to get better.
Bills for his medical treatment is not an easy challenge. We are still trying to raise funds for my father. We are selling mugs and shirts, but it was not enough.
We are hoping to ask for help from everyone. Our family is not that financially stable, but we would like and hoping to extend his life. With your kind heart and generosity, help us make the once healthy sports veteran well again.
