The Legacy of AJ Perez
To Commemorate AJ Perez's fifth death Anniversary, a book titled A Smile of Hope: The Legacy of AJ Perez is set to launch this April 17, 2016 at National Book Store, Trinoma at 3pm. The Book was written by his Mother Ma. Victoria Perez and Author Zenaida Roy-Almario under ABS-CBN Publishing.
Young Actor AJ Perez died from vehicular accident last April 17, 2011 in Paniqui, Tarlac. A 28-year-old Lawrence Villanueva and 8-year-old Daniel Delos Santos were the grateful recipients of AJ’s corneas after his family agreed to donate them to those in need.
After the late actor AJ Perez’s parents donated their son’s corneas to the Eye Bank, he also became the Eye Bank Foundation’s Poster boy on August 2011. Aside from that, his parents continue to support the foundation through helping in this advocacy.
AJ Perez was a member of ABS-CBN's Star Magic Batch 13.
