    Two cerebral palsy patients wait seven hours for Pacquiao outside gym. Then this

    Apr 22, 2015

    LOS ANGELES – Here's one more reason to cheer for the 'Pacman.'

    Two big fans, both afflicted with cerebral palsy, waited for almost seven hours outside the Wild Card gym on Tuesday (Wednesday, Manila time) hoping for the chance to personally wish Manny Pacquiao luck in his 12-round battle against Floyd Mayweather Jr. two weeks from now at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

    The long wait proved worth it as Guatemalan Jember Carcamo and Mexican Memo Gomez soon met Pacquiao, who, after a tiring day at the gym, still found time to spend with the two fans.

    The Filipino ring icon later had a short talk with his two fans, signed autographs, and granted photo ops before bidding them goodbye.

    The two were naturallty over the moon.

    “We hope he wins the fight,” said Gomez who, despite his condition, still pushes close pal Carcamo around in his wheelchair in the streets of Hollywood.

    Carcamo said Pacquiao’s friendly and humble ways have endeared him to people - regardless of nationality.

    “He inspires a lot of people whatever nationalities and whatever condition they are in,” said Carcamo, a Guatemalan now based in California.
