AJ Perez Eyes to Donate to Fatima Soriano!

Part of AJ Perez will still be alive as his eyes will be donated to a young girl and Marian devotee!

The family of AJ Perez has decided to donate the young actor's cornea to Marian devotee Fatima Soriano, who was born blind.

Fatima Soriano is said to be the 'sugo ng birhen'. Though she has a mission of guiding the people in the right path, it seems that she's not lucky physically. She was born blind! But still, she is blessed with a beautiful voice!

Fatima's mother, Fely Soriano, confirmed that she and Fatima, 17, have already talked to Perez's father, Gerardo, about the planned donation. Thess Gubi of Star Magic was the first to tell the family of Fatima about the decision of the Perez family.

"Noong Saturday nanonood ang mother ni AJ ng ‘Bottomline’ (a talk show on ANC) at si Fatima ang guest. So ‘yon, very fresh pa sa kanya ‘yong story ni Fatima. Tapos tumawag ang husband niya sinabi namatay si AJ," she said.

"We are very grateful na napili nila si Fatima na bigyan ng cornea ni AJ. It's good. I will be very happy kung anuman ang maging resulta. Thankful kami sa family ni AJ kasi una nilang napili si Fatima," Fatima's mother expressed!

According to Fely, they were not sure if the cornea transplant will be ok for Fatima. The checkup will be after the Holy Week. For the meantime, she said she advised them to deposit AJ's cornea in an eye bank at the Makati Medical Center.

We may recall that the eyes of another young actor Mico Sotto who accidentally died after falling from the top of his condo unit were also donated to a young girl. And this young girl was very thankful to the family of Mico specially to his mother Ali Sotto for donating the eyes of their beloved son.

Hopefully the eye transplant operation will also be successfully to Fatima! God bless! c",)
