26 Sep / 8pm, SomArts Cultural Center, 934 Brannan St, San Francisco CA: Mae Cendaña's daughter, UC Berkeley junior Tallulah Danielle "Dae" David SPC Pasig HS'00 sang her original compositions to open Literary & Performance Night of Kearny Street Workshop's APAture '03. The intro below is from Kearny Street Workshop’s APAture 2003 Participating Artists page:
“TALLULAH DANIELLE C. DAVID picked up a guitar 3 years ago and has been writing songs ever since. She has sung at UC Berkeley events such as the Pilipino Association benefit concert, What's Going On? Annual Maganda Magazine publication launchings, and open mics hosted by Theatre Rice! and the Asian Pacific American Student Development organization. Aside from singing, Tallulah serves as the Youth Mentorship Co-coordinator under the Berkeley Pilipino Academic Student Services, extending mentorship programs to Pilipino Youth around the Bay Area.”
Berkeley Smash-hit SaturDae!
13 Mar 2004, Capoeira Arts Cafe, Berkeley CA: Dae Cendaña performed in "Where We Goin'" concert show presented by Cal Berkeley - Pilipino American Alliance to benefit Filipino-American WWII veterans. Scoop from Dae’s Mom, Mae:
Dae at the 2003-04 UCB PASS Staff Retreat.
“Dae's performance was a smash hit! She sang
three songs including her own composition, "Foolish”, a rendition of
"Come Away with Me" by Norah Jones and "Insensitive", which
she performed with another artist, PJ. He played the piano while Dae sang and
played the guitar. Dae announced that that she will not be around for next
year's "Where We Goin" because she will be in Brazil for a year as
part of UC Berkeley's Education Abroad Program and to fulfill requirements for
her major, Development Studies --- the study of developing countries. Prior to
her second song, Dae introduced me to the audience. Sus! I received applause
for being "Tallulah's Mom"! Pinky,
I'm sure you can relate.
Hi to everyone!

I find it hard asking someone to make a donation. I guess we all do. But, today I'm writing to you about a cause that's important to me and a cause that I know you will want to support. I have decided to take a role in the fight against multiple sclerosis (MS) by joining the MS Bike Tour and I'm asking you to join me in this important fight by sponsoring me.
MS is an unpredictable and devastating disease that can attack any of us in the prime of life. Imagine, one day you are ready to take on the world... and the next you are faced with the diagnosis of an incurable and debilitating disease. That's why I'm participating in the MS Bike Tour and asking you to help me make a difference.
MS researchers have made extraordinary progress these last few years searching for a cure and your contribution will help support these vital efforts. Funds will also be used to support local programs for people with MS and their families.
You can either ride with me and Team JSTB (Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley) or help me reach my fundraising goal of $200.00 by sponsoring me in the MS Bike Tour. It’s easy. Please click on the "To Sponsor Me" link below and sponsor me online today. You also click on "My Personal Webpage" for more information.
Your support will mean so much to me, and the over 400,000 Americans living with MS. Can I count on your help?

It was in May last year when I first heard of MS while attending an event sponsored by the MS Society. Back then, I was glad to help but prayed that no one I know personally would ever suffer from this dreaded disease. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is described in the Merriam dictionary as “a demyelinating disease marked by patches of hardened tissue in the brain or the spinal cord and associated especially with partial or complete paralysis and jerking muscle tremor.” It is a chronic disease for which we do not yet know a cure.
Czarina Janelle or Ging-ging (her nickname) is my youngest sister. She is 26 years old and spent most of her life in the East Coast away from most of her older siblings who reside in the San Francisco Bay Area. Ging learned to be responsible, independent and assertive. She finished her Masters in Hospital Management in 2002, and in November 2003 at a beautiful ceremony in Durham, North Carolina, she married her college sweetheart, Juan.
Three months after the wedding, she complained of her eyesight. Tests showed a lesion in her brain, and soon enough, she was diagnosed with MS. She will receive weekly injections starting next month to control the flare-ups. Despite the bad news, Ging remains positive and hopeful --- an inspiration to me and the rest of our family.
The Top Hat Classic will be my first bike tour experience. I’m a novice cyclist and have actually fallen from my bike twice last year. I am still recuperating from a frozen shoulder, but I hope that by taking this challenge I can support Ging and also emulate her unbroken optimism, which she maintains while meeting the challenges that she continues to face.
The MS Society provides directly to patients and their families --- 42% of the money raised from their cycling tours goes to help the nearly 10,000 patients in the local area.
While the MS Society is the single largest sponsor of research towards a cure, it is also the single greatest resource for patients and families suffering from the disease. You can make a pledge on-line by clicking on the link below, or you can pledge an amount and mail a check out to the National MS Society and send it to Mae David, University of California Office of the President, 1111 Franklin Street, 9th floor, Oakland, CA 94607.
Thank you very much for your help and support!
