Pacman ‘cures’ cancer patient
THERE was an unbelievably touching episode when Manny Pacquiao visited Chicago for a get-together with the media and a Pep Rally at the Federal Plaza in downtown Chicago, alongside World Boxing Council lightweight champion David Diaz on Wednesday.
One of Pacquiao’s ardent fans, who somehow made it to the event, was 78-year-old Filipino Placido Dosdos, who had undergone chemotherapy, radiation and surgery for colon cancer. Dosdos was formerly a Customs appraiser/examiner at the Mactan Airport in Cebu and has lived in Chicago for the past 15 years.
An e-mail from Gigi Dosdos-Jardine, the cancer patient’s daughter sent to Viva Sports special correspondent Romy Sajer, a former news anchor/reporter of NBN, wrote her father was homebound after weeks in the hospital on a wheelchair, but was determined to see Pacquiao.
“He was able to walk with a cane, ride a blue line with his daughter and waited for one hour to get a glimpse of his no.1 idol Manny Pacquiao,” reported Sajer.
Gigi wrote her father was “proud of Manny representing the Philippines. He waited more than an hour to see his idol in cold weather despite a runny nose and feeling floaty from his condition, but this motivated him to get out of the house to see his idol.”
She concluded her e-mail in caps: “MANNY P. CURED MY DAD. HE IS BACK TO HIS NORMAL SELF NOW.”
Gigi thanked Sajer for talking to her father and listening to her story. She said she was a fan of Philippine Weekly, a community newspaper in Chicago. Ronnie Nathanielsz
