  • His daughter is suffering from a kidney disease, doctors said

Parents are willing to take greater heights just to do everything for their children. And this driver is one testament to that.

While on her way to Marilao, Bulacan, Facebook user Josie dela Cruz noticed a frail person at the passenger’s seat beside their driver.

When she asked the driver, named Rey Lemon, he said that she is her daughter who is suffering from a kidney disease.

Lemon said he takes his 16-year-old daughter to work because no one would look after her. He said his wife have left him and their three daughters.

“Kailangan niya kumayod para may pang-kain at pang-diaper ang anak niya. Gusto niya mapagamot ang nak niya kaya nakiusap siya paki-picture-an ang anak niya para makarating sa Channel 7. Kay Miss Mel Tiangco,” dela Cruz said on Facebook.

ABS-CBN, in a feature it posted of Lemon, said that he rents the vehicle daily so he only earns P200 to P300 a day.

The post has since gone viral with more than 205,000 likes and over 252,000 shares as of posting. Hopefully, this can reach kind-hearted individuals who can offer help.

For anyone interested to help, dela Cruz said Lemon may be reached through the number 0948-861-8629. They live in Barangay Cacarong in Pandi, Bulacan.
