Blind masseur gropes for brighter future after AVRC

TAGBILARAN CITY, October 30 (PIA)--"I could have been most miserable, fumbling on the chores: bound at home to cook, wash the dishes and feed the pets."

It could have been the kind of life Estrello Dag-um was bound to after his 16th year.

It was a nasty case of typhoid fever which refused to be cured that emptied the family piggy bank.

Confined in city private hospital to fight off his illness, days stretched which slowly drained the family savings. 

Then the young teen has to take the leap to a public hospital to get his cure at a cheaper cost.

More weeks later, he still has to find a cure and his chances of seeing good light are dimming.

His left eyesight first dimmed, clouding, until it makes him see colors a blur.

He has to stop school where his parents kept him home to do the chores instead.
