Meet the Star of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Commercials
Meet Alec Cabacungan: the face of Shriners Hospitals for Children, who has captured hearts across America with his famous commercials.
Cabacungan was on “Fox and Friends” this morning, where he said that the hospital has “a special place in [his] heart, recalling his countless surgeries and physical therapy there.
Cabacungan suffers from Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a brittle bone disease, and he has broken more than 60 bones in his lifetime. But that hasn’t stopped him from achieving his dreams of playing adaptive sports.
“Because of Shriners, I can play wheelchair basketball, I can play wheelchair softball,” he said.
Shriners also gave Cabacungan the amazing opportunity to interview NFL draftees back in April, a dream come true for Cabacungan, who hopes to be a sports anchor one day.
“With my commercials, I love helping Shriners ‘cause they’ve helped me so much,” he said. “It’s the least I could do.”
