Their stories became our daily bread, something we look up and an ounce of inspiration to be courageous and determined in life. With that being said, a story of a girl finally met the doctor who saved her life for free when she was only a baby.
One Twitter user name Arabelle Garciano shared a photo of herself and the doctor who saved her life. When she was a sick baby and her mother had no money for her medication, one kind doctor from Cebu offered to help them for free.
“17, years ago, a sickly baby needed an operation because she has a cyst on her chest. The mother only has P40 in her wallet. But this doctor operated the child. For free.”
The doctor was identified as Dr. Maribel Du, a pediatric surgeon from University of Cebu Medical Center. Her kindness bare fruit to a fine lady who is motivated to do good toward others also.
“And that is why I need to become a doctor. I need to share the same kindness I was lucky enough to receive.”
Arabelle is now a senior high school student at the Tagbilaran City High School. Though becoming a doctor is a long way and not easy, she is determined because Dr. Du had motivated her to strive hard to achieve that dream.
