Courageous Caitie’s Inspirational Story On “Maalaala Mo Kaya”

The longest-running drama anthology in Asia presents another heart wrenching story as the life of Courageous Caitie, the little angel who showed the world her unwavering smile and immeasurable resolve despite her very rare condition, is portrayed on “MMK” this Saturday (June 25).

Caitie (Miel Espinoza) is the first daughter of married couple Tine (Shaina Magdayao) and Jayjay (JC de Vera). The couple met when both were rebuilding their lives from failed relationships and suddenly found themselves in each other’s arms. Seeing each other as life partners, they planned to get married and to have children. To the couple, the birth of Caitie made their union perfect and as it stood were both very happy on the day they first laid eyes on Caitie.

When Caitie was three years old, symptoms of a mystery illness began surfacing such as rashes all over her body. In a span of three months, Caitie had to be confined in three different hospitals as doctors could not seem to diagnose her condition.

Jayjay felt responsible for Caitie’s condition due to his family’s medical history, while Tine felt so lost that she already thought of ending their marriage. Consumed by hopelessness, they shared Caitie’s story online to find support. An overwhelming response came their way and Caitie came to be known as Courageous Caitie.

Joining this “MMK” episode are Aubrey Miles, Dante Ponce, Aiko Climaco, Bernadette Allyson, Kenzo Gutierrez, and Miko Raval. The episode is directed by Dondon Santos and written by Joan Habana. “MMK” is led by business unit head Malou Santos.
