Some stories are truly just amazing. While a simple photo shared by a young girl on social media merely shows the teen with an older woman, its caption reveals that the woman was the doctor who once saved her life when she was a sickly little baby. Amazingly, the doctor performed an operation on the baby completely free of charge.
Arabelle Garciano from Tagbilaran City in Cebu, Philippines posted the picture on Twitter. It shows the high school student with Dr. Maribel Du, a pediatric surgeon from University of Cebu Medical Center. Garciano revealed that she was once a sick baby who happened to have a cyst on her chest. Although Garciano’s mother didn’t have any money, Dr. Du agreed to operate on the baby for free.
17 years ago, a sickly baby needed an operation because she has a cyst on her chest. The mother only has ₱40 on her wallet. But this doctor operated the child. For free.
And that is why I need to become a doctor. I need to share the same kindness I was lucky enough to receive. pic.twitter.com/DBea1TXdNZ
