Senator Juan Edgardo “Sonny” Angara took part in the ice bucket challenge and filed Senate Bill No. 2383, which aims to provide patients with rare diseases and their families better access to adequate medical care, health information and healthcare products needed for their condition.
Angara, who was nominated by Cebu Rep. Luigi Quisumbing, dared Senator Pia Cayetano and Gilas Pilipinas coach Chot Reyes to do the ice bucket challenge.
Senator Bam Aquino accepted the ice bucket challenge and said he will donate an entertainment system to the neurology ward of the Philippine General Hospital where there are ALS patients confined.
Aquino nominated Education Secretary Armin Luistro, Social Welfare Secretary Dinky Soliman, the band Eraserheads, and the main trio of the defunct TV show “Palibhasa Lalake” – Richard Gomez, John Estrada and Joey Marquez.
