A heartbreaking photo of a 6-year-old girl manually using an air pump as a nebulizer to relieve the difficulty his dad is feeling. Her dad is suffering from Emphysema and due to lack of finances, they could not afford to buy a nebulizer.
A Daughter’s Love
They say that fathers are every daughter’s first true love. But in this modern and digital world that we live in, we seldom see children express their love for their parents. They may be busy with school and with their gadgets that they often forget to express their love for their fathers.
In a heartwarming photo shared by Ian Carlos Simbuyan on Facebook, we can clearly see and feel the love of a 6-year-old girl, Catherine, for her father. Her father is diagnosed with Emphysema, which makes it hard for him to breath easily and needs to be regularly given medications using a nebulizer. Due to their poverty, they could not afford to buy a nebulizer for him, instead, Catherine is using a manual air pump so that his father can be given the medications he badly needs for his sickness.
Help On The Way
The heartbreaking situation of the family caught the attention of GMA 7, where their story was featured in the show Front Row. Because of the exposure and also with the help of social media, there is an outpouring of offers to help the family of Catherine.
An Inspiration To Many
People were inspired by the love that Catherine has for her father. Despite her age, she already taught us a lesson about unconditional love, a love that is pure and selfless. By showing her love for her father, Catherine also reminded us to love our own parents, while we still can, while they are still here with us before it’s too late.
