DLSU table tennis star Yan Lariba has been somewhere at the back of every UAAP fan at the start of season 80.
After getting diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia early this year, the unbeaten UAAP paddler and Filipino Olympian has been receiving some calls of support from fellow Filipinos all over the globe.
This time, the Internationa Table Tennis Federation took initiative to help raise awareness, as well as money for the embattled athlete.
"The 22-year-old has already completed three cycles of chemo," the video read, "But her condition of acute myeloid leukemia needs even more treatment."
The short clip gives instructions about how to buy memorabilia signed by international table tennis stars Ma Long, and and Ding Ning with the benefits aimed at helping Lariba's recovery.

Back in May, the ITTF posted a touching video where other international paddlers came together to wish her well.
