Mother's Tears of Joy After Getting Help

By Bong Recemilla, with reports from Jun Gutierrez

A mother of a 16-year-old patient, who received assistance, sounded her heartfelt thanks over Station dyRD amid tears of joy.

Earlier, Teodora Cullamat, mother of patient Jerna Cullamat, announced live through dyRD’s Action Line her urgent need. She sought assistance to discharge her daughter from Bohol Gallares Hospital after nine days of admission due to a broken leg.

The elder Cullamat, who even hardly fends for a living, got weary over the P19,000 hospital bill. But a call or two by anchorman Chito Vissara relieved the apprehensive mother.

Following the call a discount stashed the bill, courtesy of the hospital’s social worker.

By the second call the rest of the bill was shouldered, courtesy of Provincial Administrator Tommy Abapo Jr.

As the mother came back to the station to give thanks via the Tagbilaran-by-Night program, an anonymous caller announced to donate crutches for the young Cullamat.

If the mother’s tears weren’t of joy, what were?
