At 20, the woman’s son Karl takes pity on his mom but knows that the only way he could help her now is to carry her to the dialysis center. What’s really sad is that even though the weather might be stormy or really hot, they have to regularly carry her using the makeshift carrier because their house is far from the highway.

There is no other way they can bring their mother to the highway. They also had to do this regularly or their mom would miss the schedule. If she does, she would have to pay a higher rate for special dialysis.

Kahit bumabagyo pa, kailangan namin buhatin si Mama para mapa-dialysis siya. Malayo kasi ‘yung bahay namin sa highway. Kailangan kasing sundin ang schedule ng ospital. Kung hindi, special dialysis ‘yun at mahal ‘yung babayaran namin,” Karl explained.

They had been doing this for a long time, but they really have no other choice. Karl promised to do his best in his studies so he could help his siblings and send them to school, no matter what might happen to their mother.

Kapag nakikita kong nahihirapan si Mama, naiisip ko na mas lalo ko dapat pagbutihin ang pag-aaral ko. Kasi kung one day, mawala nga siya, at least meron na akong maitutulong sa mga kapatid ko. Mapapag-aral ko sila,” the 20-year-old Karl said.

Natatakot ako na baka hindi ako makapagtapos at hindi ko maiahon sa hirap ang mga kapatid ko. Bilang panganay, alam ko na responsibilidad ko na pag-aralin ang kapatid ko. Pero siyempre, umaasa pa rin ako na gagaling si Nanay.

Many are hoping that their mother could still get better and they can find a more comfortable way to transport their mother.
