Go ‘ninong’ to separated conjoined twins in CamNorte

By: Mar Serrano

 

DAET, Camarines Norte — Former Special Assistant to the President Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go stood as one of the principal sponsors in the baptism of separated conjoined twins, Divine and Mercy, at the Most Holy Trinity Cathedral here on Sunday afternoon.

Go, Camarines Norte Governor Edgardo Tallado and four others became godfathers in the christening rites officiated by Father Fidel Era of the Diocese of Camarines Norte.

The six-month-old twins underwent a successful separation surgery at the Philippine General Hospital with the assistance of Go last January 31, Tallado noted.

Before the operation, the twins were discovered by the local Brigada station here, which came out with a feature story about their plight.

Divine and Mercy were born on September 5 last year. Their parents are Edmund Cerillo, 38, fisherman and his live-in partner Ravelin Guinto, 31, residents of Barangay Sabang, Vinsons town.

The governor, upon learning about the difficulty of the parents in raising funds for the operation referred the case to Go, who, in turn, endorsed the case to the PGH.

The twins were sent to the PGH for medical study and later, underwent a procedure to separate their conjoined stomachs.

Go, who flew in on Sunday, also joined his fellow PDP-Laban senatorial candidates at a campaign rally in the Provincial Capitol Gymnasium. (PNA)
