    Mark Caguioa 's Letter To Commissioner Salud On Why He's Absent In PBA All-Star 2011 In Boracay: Let's Pray For His Father





    Manny Ginebra fans including me were wondering why Mark Caguioa was absent in the 2011 PBA All-Star Game in Boracay. I was informed by my friend that he has a family problem. I don't know the specific reason about his absence, but it must be so serious because I know how Mark Loves the PBA fans. He will do everything just to make them happy and well entertained whenever he's on the court playing for Ginebra. Being absent in any of the PBA's event, especially in the PBA All-Star game is not his thing because he loves his fans.

    Immediately, after he arrived in the Philippines last Monday, he made a letter stating why he was absent in Boracay. The primary reason is that, his father has a lump in his neck and Mark sensed that he needed to be with his family in Glendale, California. His father's ailment is a very painful thing for Mark and his family. That reason is really a valid and compelling one. I hope that everything would turn out to be fine for Mark and his family. Let's all pray for Mark's father. But before that, here's the letter of Mark Caguioa addresed to PBA Commissioner Chito Salud.

    June 1, 2011

    Mr. Chito Salud
    Commissioner
    Philippine Basketball Association

    Dear Commissioner Salud,

    Please kindly excuse me for missing the 2011 Hala Bola! PBA All Star
    Week in Boracay.

    I am also seeking your pardon for not informing your good office
    earlier because of some unexpected news that I received on day of Game
    5 of the Commissioners Cup Finals between our team Ginebra and Talk N
    Text.

    I received a call on that day from my brother who is in the States,
    informing me that our father, was getting tested for cancer because
    they found a lump on he's neck. Immediately after Game 6 of the
    Finals, I booked myself May 9th the following day to personally attend
    and facilitate the medical check-up my father would need. During this
    time I am still positive that I would and could attend the All Star
    festivities, In fact I was planning to return on the 16th of May,
    unfortunately it was in the best interest of our family that I stay
    with them until everything is secure with regards to the health of my
    father.

    This is when I realized that I can no longer participate in the PBA
    All Star event.

    I would like to apologize to the fans that trusted and voted for me to
    start in the All Star. I would also like to apologize to you and the
    PBA community, media, also to my team, teammates and SMC for being
    absent for a week of training camp to prepare for this coming
    Governors Cup.

    Rest assured that I will do my duties as a PBA player and do my best
    to promote the interest of the PBA as a whole.


    Sincerely yours,

    Mark Caguioa
