No. 105: Biel Liam E. Parol, 3, Congenital Heart Disease, Philippine Heart Center
Little Biel was born with Congenital Heart Disease. It was always difficult for parents to learn about the ill-condition of their children, with their unconditional love, enough to move forward and push hard for the sake of the children no matter what it takes. The father is a tricycle driver while the mother is focused on taking care of her sick child. Both the parents are doing hustles (legal ones) just to make ends meet, and provide whatever they can for the need of the sick little Biel. No matter how much they do, it is still not enough to cover all the basics for the family, more so the medical management of Biel, who is awaiting the schedule of heart surgery.
The Chummy Chum team as per the wish of the head of the foundation, immediately arrange the delivery of the help to the sick child. Little Biel received cash assistance for his medical management, formula milk for his nourishment, and grocery items to share with the family. The team also gave Biel a set of coloring books with crayons, Chummy Chum stuff toys and wristbands. This will make Biel remember that once upon a time, Chummy Chum had been a part of his journey.
