MANILA, Philippines - Miss World 2010 Alexandria Mills of the USA didn't miss out on the opportunity to help others when she, together with Miss World 1st runner-up Emma Wareus of Botswana, visited two kids with cancer at the Ospital ng Makati last Monday.
Mills and Wareus visited Richard Belmes, 7, and Kurt Durian, 6, who both have acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) at their tender age.
ALL is "the most common type of cancer in children," according to the medicinenet.com. It is cancer of the blood and bone marrow.
The two children have received support from the Makati Shangri-La Hotel, the beauty queens' official residence, through its Embrace CSR program.

Reto Klauser, general manager of Makati Shangri-La hotel, informed Mills and Wareus of the Embrace program, and invited them to visit the children when they have the chance.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity,” said Miss World chairperson Julia Morley, who accompanied Mills and Wareus as they toured the pediatric ward of Ospital ng Makati.
“Being at the children’s hospital is a good start to my first visit to the Philippines,” Mills said.
