Francis M. (R.I.P)

My country, the PHILIPPINES, just loss a TRUE PINOY CULTURAL ICON last MARCH 6,2009 at 12:20pm when FRANCIS DURANGO MAGALONA aka. "FRANCIS M.",THE MASTER RAPPER, passed away due to severe complications after waging a battle from LEUKEMIA specifically Acute Myelogenous Leukemia or simply A.M.L. at THE MEDICAL CITY HOSPITAL. I have some patients before having the same Medical Diagnosis and I have to say in practice that it has a very poor prognosis. So when I got the news last August, 2008 of FRANCIS M.'s medical health condition I was really saddened because majority of my patients with the same diagnosis sadly didn't lived that long. Though, there are treatments indeed in this kind of leukemia, It's is still the "BIG C." (Cancer) and definitely due to some proliferative mutations the patients can have a poor immune system thus leading with other complications. I personally shot this photo of the HEADLINE NEWS that would really start this blogspost tribute of mine.

A lot of TRIBUTES has been made already in the WEB, Television, Radio, and other MEDIA FORMAT, but here's my own tribute giving my last respect to one great FILIPINO ARTIST .....and that's FRANCIS MAGALONA. From the RAPublic of the PHILIPPINES!!


Last weekend, I was able to tune in to the TRIBUTE done by EAT BULAGA for the FATHER OF PINOY RAP and was really touched on the production. GALING!! Like me, FRANCIS M., is also an advocate of "PROUD TO BE PINOY" theme and the MAN FROM MANILA would always be forever in the hearts of every FILIPINOS. As you have noticed, ever since I've started this little BLOG wayback 2007 and entitled my very first blogspost as "BIG NEW BEGINING", I have already placed the PHILIPPINE FLAG on the right side of my blog to remind everyone that this blog is definitely "MADE IN THE PHILIPPINES". YUP!! Francis M. is very nationalistic and patriotic too and that reflected a lot on his songs for the entire generation to keep. One very key person to be missed in the PHILIPPINE MUSIC INDUSTRY and the NATION itself. This reminds us that life is indeed very fragile and we have to make the most out of it. Our stay here on earth is only temporary and everytime we breathe that's a major "THANK YOU" to our creator. We may be here today...and gone tomorrow. HEALTH IS WEALTH!! We will miss you FRANCIS M.!!!

Here are some VIDEO CLIPS from
the FRANCIS M. EAT BULAGA TRIBUTE!!
