My Unsung Hero + Giveaway (Closed)

In our lives, we have our own unsung heroes, people who have given us unconditional love and support through the years. These people that sometimes we forget to thank or acknowledge their love, care, and deeds to us. 

Three years ago we had Honoring our Heroes event in PsorPhil where we give thanks to all the doctors, celebrities, partners, media and other people who supported PsorPhil and today I would like to take this opportunity to thank my unsung hero. 

My unsung hero is no other than my husband. we’ve known each other for thirteen years already. I was grateful to God for giving me my husband because he completed me. Growing up in a broken family, I prayed that someday I would have my own family that I can call my own. God answered my prayer and now I have a complete family. 

I’m a full-time mom and my husband supported me because I wanted to take care of my own son. I don’t want to leave my son in yaya or helper because I want to attend to my all son’s needs and concerns. I know the feeling of not having parents by your side. Living on a single income is not easy but I’m thankful to my husband for working hard to provide for our family.

I’m also grateful to him for not giving up on me. We’re still friends when I discovered that I have psoriasis. He is always there for me from the very start. He accompanies me in my check-up, laboratory, and even therapy. He sees me at my worst but still accepts and loves me. 

There are days that I wanted to give up because I’m tired of going to the hospital and I’m struggling enough with my skin condition but he is always there to lift me up. He always assures me that they will always be with me no matter what. No words are enough to give my thanks to him and I’m forever grateful for having him in my life. 

Who is your unsung hero? Behind every Filipino is a loved one who has given them unconditional support with Husay at Malasakit through the years without asking for recognition. Unilab celebrates the Filipinos who make society a better place through the positive ways they impact the lives of those around them by giving their loved ones a unique chance to show their gratitude.
