“Ang Probinsyano” lead star Coco Martin earned praises from netizens after he granted a wish of a young fan who is suffering from a rare skin condition.

Martin’s “Ang Probinsyano” co-star Edu Manzano took to Instagram to share the former’s kind gesture to his fan named Miracael Macavinta.

Macanvinta was suffering from a skin condition called Epidermolysis bullosa, which the Mayo Clinic website defined as a “group of rare diseases that cause fragile, blistering skin”.

The same source said that the said disease is inherited and currently has no cure.

WebMD added that “children born with it are often called ‘Butterfly Children’ because their skin seems as fragile as a butterfly wing”.

“Earlier this month, nakatanggap ako ng sulat from the parents of a child named Miracael Macavinta, who is suffering from a rare skin disease called Epidermolysis bullosa.

“The letter was coursed through the office of Vice Mayor Janella Estrada.

“Tanging hiling niya lang ay ma-meet ang kanyang idol na si Coco Martin and recently, we made that happen!” Manzano captioned the photo.

Manzano ended the post by thanking Martin for what he did for his young fan.
