A college student from the University of Sto. Tomas took to Facebook last Wednesday to express his love for his girlfriend of six years, who is presently battling cancer.
Gab Sta. Ana devotes his now viral-post with a hashtag #LiveLifeToTheMAX for his girlfriend Maxine Blanco. In a series of pictures, Sta. Ana narrated the blossoming of his and Maxine Blanco’s love story in high school – how they grew as a couple, and how their relationship was tried, tested, and came out stronger than ever when she was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma last July 2018.
Blanco, who will be turning 20 in the coming week, is also a Thomasian taking up Legal Management.
Sta. Ana, whose birthday was last Thursday, only has one wish: For Blanco to live a long life!
He told INQUIRER LIBRE, through chat, that he desires for it to happen so that he can show his love to her much longer. “It felt like our story should continue much longer,” said Sta. Ana.
“Ang greatest sacrifice na kaya ko ibigay kay Max is my time and also my energy para lang bantayan siya. Right now kasi I can’t give something financially so I’m giving something that I can give but ten times more,” he added.
I really want to share things with all of you guys!! *Every picture may story so please read it okay?* Sooo here it gooess ♥️♥️♥️♥️#LiveLifeToTheMAX
The Thomasians’ touching story certainly reached the hearts of netizens with Sta. Ana’s post receiving 74 thousand reactions and 100 thousand shares on Facebook.
