Guam - This morning a check presentation was made to 15-year-old Rolfo "Julius" Dogillo. TakeCare Insurance Company partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to grant the teen the wish of visiting and spending time with family and friends in the Philippines.  Rolfo suffers from end stage renal disease and malignant hypertension, which requires him to undergo regular dialysis treatments.

Takecare donated $7,500 to fund his activities in the Philippines. According to TakeCare marketing manager Agnes Perez, this is the third wish that they were able to grant for the Guam Chapter.
