Nangangailangan ng tulong ang mga naulila ni dating Philippine Basketball Association-Purefoods (Magnolia na) at National Collegiate Athletic Association-San Sebastian College Recoletos star guard Ulysses ‘Buboy’ Tanigue.

Ayon kahapon kay NCAA Management Committee-University of Perpetual Help System Dalta representative Francisco Gusi, nagpapatulong ang asawa ni Tanigue na si Emelyn Tanigue dahil sa laki ng kanilang ginastos sa ­ospital.

“They desperately need money because of the bills that mounted when Buboy (Tanigue) was hospitalized because of leukemia, they despe­rately need help,” saad ni Gusi, retiradong athletic director ng Baste.

Si Gusi ang athletic director noong nagla­laro pa si Tanigue sa Golden Stags.

Nagsabi na si Gusi sa mga kaibigan at kaki­lala nila na ipadala ang tulong sa Land Bank of the Philippines Puerto Branch-Cagayan de Oro City na nakapanga­lan kay Emelyn at may ­account number na 3537-0196-29.

“For those with ge­nerous hearts, please help Buboy’s family,” hayag ni Gusi.

Nakilala si Tanigue bilang starting guard ng San Sebastian team, kasama sa NCAA five-peat feat mula 1993-97. Naglaro rin siya sa Purefoods.

Namatay si Tanigue sa edad na 43 noong Linggo, Enero 28.
