Do you believe that love, if it’s meant for you, will find you at the right time? This statement holds true both for Mari and Cleo who found each other even through the most impossible of circumstances. You see, Cleo was diagnosed with Lupus Nephritis when she was 16 years old and it completely and dramatically changed her life. She confined herself in her room for five years because the doctors said that sun exposure was the trigger to her condition. She felt so helpless and hopeless, and just as she thought that her condition couldn’t get worse, in 2013, she was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Failure which meant she had to undergo dialysis for the rest of her life. She was 22 then.
As she battled for her life day after day, Cleo already accepted the fact that she would grow old single and with her mom by her side. She thought that was how good things were going to get for her. But clearly, the biggest plot twist of her life was just waiting for the right time to happen.
Mari and Cleo met through a dating app which was the only way possible for them to really meet because of Cleo’s condition. They started chatting and eventually got to know each other better.
