NCAA, UAAP communities send Jerrick Balanza well-wishes
Prayers up for Jerrick Balanza in these trying times.

Just like a tight-knit family, members of the Philippine basketball community sent their earnest prayers and sincerest well-wishes to stricken Letran Knight Jerrick Balanza, who was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor.

Messages poured through social media immediately after Letran requested Balanza to be pulled out of NCAA Season 94 due to his ailment.

Though adversaries on the court, NCAA players tweeted well-wishes for the veteran. 

Balanza's current and past teammates from Letran also expressed their sentiments towards Balanza's speedy recovery.

Even former Letran coach Louie Alas, who had not handled Balanza, sent out his best wishes for the former Squire.

Now UP Fighting Maroon and former Perpetual Altas Mythical 5 member Bright Akhuetie also wished the best of luck for Balanza.

Akhuetie's UP teammate Gelo Vito also sent a heartfelt message.

Balanza needs Php 500,000 for his brain surgery, and those who are interested in helping the father of two may donate in this account:
