Paralisado Man Ang Kalahating Katawan, Ang Lalaking Ito Ay Patuloy Pa Rin Sa Paghahanapbuhay



A man named Jerome from Camiguin island has his life revolving around a small bed called “Katre”. Unfortunately, Jerome has been paralyzed from waist down but it didn’t stop hi from earning money for himself in order to survive.

These days, more and more people are getting exhausted from working their 8-5 job. These employees are not only ranting about how tiring and exhausting their job is but also how their body is already aching from working.

In a nipa hut in Sagay in Camiguin Island, a man named Jerome lives. While others are ranting about how tiring their jobs are, Jerome is truly grateful for his job does not require him to travel. Instead, his Katre serves as his own office. Being paralyzed from waist down, Jerome lies on his Katry and start doing his job which is known as ‘pagkokopra’.

People probably asked why he’s not doing it on a wheelchair. Well, according to Jerome he prefers doing it in his katre because it’s really painful to do his job while sitting on a wheelchair.

For the past three decades, Jerome has been living like this. Children from their neighborhood are selling dried coconuts to him for six Pesos each. Due to him being paralyzed, Jerome came up with a way to be able to reach the dried coconuts on the floor. Through the use of a huge stick, he pokes the dried coconuts that he would need for his work.

The dried coconut meat that he chopped off will then be collected buy his neighbor and will sell for 40 Pesos per kilo.

You might be wondering what happened to Jerome and why he got paralyzed. Before the age of 18, Jerome got into a horrifying accident car accident that led to him being paralyzed. Due to his condition, he was passed from one relative to under until he realized that he wants to live far from his own family.

Eventually, Jerome got used to his condition and had his own different ways of taking care of himself. He got really creative with attending to his needs. The only thing that makes him feel better is the old foam.

Meanwhile, the man who buys Kopra arrives at Jerome’s nipa hut to personally buy it. He was able to hearn a total of P1175 from a sack of Kopra.

Ever since the accident, Jerome was never checked again by an expert. Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho then brought Jerome to the nearest hospital to get checked.

Help then came pouring in Jerome’s life. A group gave him a a new bed and wheelchair while the program KMJS gave him groceries and new foam to make his everyday life more comfortable.

Despite his condition, Jerome has inspired millions of people.

Here are some of the wise words from Jerome:

“Pakiramdam ko noon, wala na akong silbi sa mundo. Hindi na kasi ako nakakalakad eh.
Nawala na lahat ng mga pangarap ko.

“Pero ang napag-isip-isip ko, ang mahalaga, buhay pa rin ako.

“‘Wag mong sabihin na, ‘Mayroon akong deperensya, iba ako sa kanila.’

“Kasi tayo lang din naman mismo ang makakapagbigay ng pag-asa sa ating mga sarili.

“Kaya kahit ganito kalagayan ko, patuloy ako sa pagkokopra.

“Kapag ‘di ko ‘to ginawa, masasayang aking mga pangarap.

Marami pa akong gustong magawa.”

In life, we would face a lot of toug challenges that would not only make us lose our faith but also the will to live. But just like Jerome, if we continue to survive and strive, we could end up inspiring a lot of people.
