Raquel Tolitol and Celenia Espinar are proof that there’s nothing more powerful than a mother’s love. Raquel, an insulin-dependent diabetic, had her medical assistance from Tzu Chi transferred to her youngest son Raymond, who was diagnosed with X-Linked Dystonia Parkinsonism. (Her second son Rusty was also later diagnosed with XDP.) As for Espinar, whose son Argie is bedridden after being electrocuted in his effort to put out a fire in their neighborhood, no task is too difficult or tiring. Medical assistance from the Tzu Chi Foundation somehow gives these mothers strength and keeps them going for the sake of their sons.
