Child Saved by Doctor for Free, Now Aspires to Also Become a Doctor to Serve Others

She had been a sickly baby who was in and out of hospitals, but when a doctor operated on her for free, the child’s life became better and she’s now a teenager who aspires to also become a doctor to serve others.

The baby was identified as May Arabella Garciano, now a senior high school student at the Tagbilaran City High School. When she was still a baby, her parents had no idea where to find money to get her treated after learning she had a cyst on her chest.

Knowing they had nowhere else to turn to, Arabella’s parents prayed for a miracle – and the miracle came in the hands of a compassionate doctor who operated on the child for free. The operation saved the baby’s life, giving her a chance to live a better life.

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,” Arabella shared on Twitter, posting a photo with the doctor.

The teen was finally able to meet the kind doctor who saved her life 17 years ago.

A pediatric surgeon at University of Cebu Medical Center in Cebu City, Dr. Maribel Du took pity on Arabella when she was still a baby. While she could have told the parents that she would operate on the kid and let them pay later, she simply didn’t charge them anything for the service.

Thanks to this kind doctor’s compassionate deed, the baby grew up to be a kind young lady who also aspires to be a doctor. Just as a doctor had saved her life, Arabella hopes to also become one so it would be her turn to save lives. Isn’t that awesome?
