It All Began with a VOW...
In November 2012, Fred’s father passed away due to stomach cancer. Before he was laid to his final resting place, while standing in front of his father’s casket, Fred made a vow to himself that he will do whatever it takes so that no other son would bear the same pain of losing his father to cancer.
He knew from then on that life would take him to a different path. He had long been an advocate of natural healing, having himself recovered from chronic illness after being diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism in 2007. But it wasn’t until the passing of his father (the “wake-up call”) when he fully embraced his calling to help people deal with their health challenges.
Heeding the call, the idea of building a place where people can find true healing and transformation dawned on Fred. The goal seemed so far-fetched and he had no clear picture yet of how it’s going to happen. Still, he believed he had to do something with what he knew in his heart. Thus began the journey of chasing the I’m-possible dream and fulfilling his vow.
In the following year, he founded Friggies, a social enterprise based in the Philippines whose mission is to instill a healthy lifestyle through its products that are mainly fresh fruit and vegetable drinks.
In its early planning stages, his business partner once asked him, “Bro, you’ve got to show me the BIG PICTURE of your plan so I know where we’re headed and we can find ways to get there.”
The BIG Picture
The Great Calling is the healing center Fred was envisioning to be built where people with health challenges can come to heal themselves. They will have access to professionals and experts from different healing modalities that can equip them with tools and techniques that suit their needs.
What he initially thought of as a physical structure is turning out to be a virtual one – an online healing center, which you happen to be accessing right now – thepathtoawesomeness.com, based on the book he authored that chronicles his own journey of healing.
