“To all our dear friends in theater, TV and film, our dear friend, Spanky Manikan needs our help.

He has been hospitalized 4 times already for various complications which has drained family savings (Spanky's loving wife, who has been by his side all this time is fellow actor Susan Africa-Manikan).
