Having no enough money to support the operation of her daughter, Regina was forced to took-in action and asks help from Santy, Chastity’s father. Upon the knowledge of what happened to his daughter, Santy didn’t have second thoughts to provide for the operation of his daughter.

For several day’s Chastity stayed in the Hospital so that her condition will be monitored by her doctor. Even though she’s only six years old at that time, she had a thought that her operation was somehow a blessing in disguise for her. Maybe she suffered from an illness but her family was reunited again. Chastity felt a kind of fulfillment after seeing her parents watching over her.

The operation day arrived. Chastity calmly lied down the stretcher and stares at her parents while the nurses deliver her to the operation room. Before she enter the room, she was injected an anesthesia and alas! She’s inside the room.

Two days later, she was allowed to discharge from the Hospital. They went to Santy’s house, since Regina couldn’t afford the expenses of Chastity’s medications, she agreed to stay in Santy’s house until Chastity recover. They will live inside one roof again, that was the time that Chastity felt complete again, thanks to her operation.
