Cheryl’s Dream Come True

Life is not easy. We all know that. And it is more difficult when you’re a person with disability.

It is undeniable that in this world, people who have disabilities have been a subject of bullying in so many occasions. However, these people live life to the best of their abilities. And this girl in our story is one of the most amazing people we’ve ever met.

Christmas Gift for Cheryl

Cheryl is a very smart girl. She supported her education thru college in spite of her condition. She was born with an incomplete left leg and malformed hands. But she was able to teach herself, through the help and encouragement of Marites, to write. And now, she writes beautifully. She is now in college, taking BA in Psychology.She was having a hard time walking with her old prosthetic leg as it had been repaired a couple of times already and it's really old and broken. So we asked for help in order to give Cheryl a new prosthetic leg. And some generous and kindhearted sponsors responded. This video is the first day of the fitting for her new prosthetic leg. There are some materials that needed to be ordered and so the prosthetic leg will not be ready until the next month. But Cheryl is really happy because it is her dream to have a new prosthetic leg that is bendable as her leg was cut off just below the knee cap. So she wanted to be able to bend her knees, which she cannot do with her old leg.To the sponsors, thank you so much for helping this smart and brave girl. You have definitely made her happy.Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!Updates to follow!

Cheryl Angot was born without hands and one leg. But it never stopped her from pursuing her dreams. She is now studying psychology in one of the universities in Cebu.

Cheryl is the 5th in a family of seven children. Her parents don’t work anymore. Her father has to retire because of a stroke while her mom is a housewife. So, Cheryl has to support herself. She works part time as a CCTV assistant in one of the companies here.

Growing up, Cheryl shared that she has been bullied a lot. But she was grateful that her mom is always there to encourage her.

“Sometimes I’m crying. But it’s okay because my mom will fight for me,” Cheryl said.

She also shared that she feels fortunate that her condition is inborn. She has learned how to manage things since she was little and didn’t need to adjust so much. And she even learned how to write! Oh, her handwriting is beautiful.

Just recently, Cheryl went to Elisabet to ask for help regarding her prosthetic leg. She was suffering from pain on her hips wearing the old leg because it’s already so torn. Elisabet asked her friends for help in sponsoring Cheryl’s leg. And a group of very generous people responded positively.

Last December, Cheryl went in for the first fitting of her new prosthetic leg. And she was so happy. She told us that it is her dream leg. She always wanted to have a leg that she can bend. The old leg was made with cheaper materials and so it was not the best of quality. But it’s all they can afford.

To LuckyChap Entertainment, you helped Cheryl’s dream become a reality. Thank you so much for your generosity. 

Together we can make a difference!
