If you want to donate, pwede po pumunta sa Cardinal Santos Medical Center between 7am to 7pm. Punta lang po sa blood bank sa Cardinal, sa may laboratory office located then sabihin donating for Erwin Scharnberg Garcia," her post read.
"Thank you in advance for your help po. We will highly appreciate it especially A+ donations which he badly needs right now. but of course any blood type is also a great help. And prayers, too. Thanks again!"

“It’s very sad that after two years, sumunod na si Erwin kay Tito Eddie,” said he, relating that he and the second born of the late seasoned actor - the longtime partner of his mother Lilibeth Romero -- were close.
"Komedyante kasi yon," he related.
Then he revealed that all three children of Eddie are now gone.
It was reported that Erwin’s older brother, Eddieboy, died in motorcycle accident in the 1970s while younger sister Elizabeth passed on in the ’90s due to heart disease.
