Most of us are tearing inside if we read or watch inspiring stories like these two siblings. Fourteen years old JM has been carrying her younger sister, Ella to school in the span of eight years.
What a gentleman! It turns out that Ella has a disability. She cannot walk. According to her mother, when she was 11 months old, she fell to the ground and suffered a trauma from the pelvic area. If only they have the means to treat the injured area, then she couldn't have suffered this sad fate.
JM carried his younger sister to school everyday for eight years. They can ride a jeep going to school, but the young boy prefers carrying her sister. The transport fare if saved, can buy them food to eat.
It's Graduation Day! The two siblings were all smiles to receive their diplomas. The young man is proud of carrying her sister around and vows that he will carry her even in college!
All their hope is not lost. The community of Asturias, Cebu where the kids live are now helping the family. They sent Ella for a medical check-up. Together with another younger sibling who has the same illness as her. They are both suffering from severe potassium deficiency, but still have a chance to walk.
Ella wanted to pursue her studies and take a Computer Course in College. JM has always wanted to be a Seaman. It's still a long shot! But, anything is achievable for these two young warriors who keeps moving on forward. Kudos to both of you!
