Hong Kong man flies to PH to take care of sickly former nanny

A man from Hong Kong did not hesitate to fly to the Philippines after he discovered that his former Filipina nanny who took care of him when he was younger has gotten sick.

According to a report by The SUN Hong Kong, OFW Remelyn Zubiaga Yumul, 54, was diagnosed with Stage 4 ovarian cancer and the disease has already affected her other organs including her lungs and appendix.

Upon knowing her condition, Yumul decided to go home to the Philippines even though she is entitled to medical care in Hong Kong as long as she was employed.

Her employers even granted her two months’ worth of vacation leave so she would still have money to pay for any of her medical needs in the Philippines.

The source also revealed that before Yumul started working for her current employers, she first worked for the Tse family in Hong Kong wherein she took care of a child named Philip.

Yumul became Philip’s nanny for nearly two decades. She took care of Philip when he was only a baby until he turned 19 and she decided to look for another employer.

Even when Yumul stopped working for the Tse family, Philip and the rest of the family still kept in touch with her as they already consider the Filipina nanny a part of their family.

It has been 16 years since Yumul moved to another employer but because of their consistent communication, Philip found out that his former nanny has gotten sick.

Philip then immediately booked a flight to the Philippines so that he can take care of his nanny just like what she did to him for many years in the past.

Now, Yumul has sought medical attention from Capiz Doctors Hospital in Roxas City wherein she underwent surgery last March 13.

Philip has also arrived in the Philippines and took care of Yumul for four days in Roxas City.

Remelyn said that she is happy that Philip took the time to do something special and meaningful for her.

The domestic helper said that she will never forget what her former ward did to her.

She is set to undergo chemo treatment on April 22.
