Leonardo G. Taysa, 58 years of age, from Baguio City, has been a teacher for more than 35 years. He is Sir Taysa to us & Sir LGT to his academe colleagues.
Sir Taysa as a Physics’ teacher knows how to make everyone tremble & forget his/her name after an hour of lessons like “… if force vector has a magnitude of xxx pointing in the -z-direction & vector f2 has a magnitude of yyyy…" He was tough. But surely does know how to have fun with us, his students.
Sir Taysa was more than just a teacher way back then. He taught us wonderful morals that shaped our visions and helped us realized our dreams with utmost commitment & dedication. He was our second father then & we will always be his children.
“A good teacher is like a candle - it consumes itself to light the way for others.” - Mustafa Ataturk
In 2017 Sir Taysa was diagnosed with the big C – cancer of the bladder.
He fought it bravely, silently, and secretly. He did not let anyone of us know because he did not want to worry his “anaks.” But like what Stefanos Livos has said, no secret can remain hidden forever.
Today, we found out that while he already survived the critical stage, he is struggling financially to cope with his maintenance. He may have the tenacity to battle the disability, but the fact remains the same, financial support is paramount. He is already a retiree & does not have a source of income.
We, from the Batch 2001 (IV-LGT) humble ourselves and seek everyone’s help.
Help us, help our Sir Taysa thrive his fight. He needs a constant supply of Urostomy bags, access to his medicines (maintenance) and healthy foods. We aim to raise P120,000 to finance his one-year medical supplies & we will figure out the year after.
NOW is the time for us to pay it forward.
He took care of us when we were so naïve about life. Sir Taysa, please keep that smile on your face. Be braver. Know that you are not alone, we will always be behind you. Not the nuisance chikitings anymore but able adults who will fight side by side with you.
