Samboy Lim is a well known PBA legend as “The Skywalker” in the ’90s. The retired basketball player suffered a severe stroke while playing in an exhibition game in 2014. He was not able to able to walk, see and speak after waking up from a comatose.  He became bedridden since then.

But despite this, He made a public appearance after a very long hiatus from the public. He really made an effort to attend her daughter’s graduation. A video recently went viral on social media



Her daughter Jamie Christine Berberabe Lim recently graduated with the highest honor of Summa Cum Laude from UP Diliman with a degree in BS Mathematics.

Atty. Darlene Berberabe, who is Jamie’s mother and Samboy’s ex-wife, also attended the special event. A former Head of Pagibig Funds also joined the graduation ceremony of their daughter.

In spite of Samboy Lim’s condition, he still made it to the special event to be part of his daughter’s special moment. The PBA Legend went upstage with her daughter and ex-wife Darlene. Samboy was accompanied by her private nurse.

Many Netizens was touched by Samboy Lim’s moment with his daughter and ex-wife on stage despite bedridden condition. Many reactions was received and one of these reactions was Manay Lolit Solis’ take on the said post. She said:



“Alam mo Salve, talagang hindi mo masabi ang buhay mo kung saan ka dadalhin o mapupunta. Meron kirot sa puso nang makita ko si Samboy Lim na dati ay sikat na sikat na basketball player nang mag-attend siya ng graduation ng anak na summa cumlaude sa UP. Hiwalay sila ng dating asawa na head ng Pag-Ibig Funds na si Darlene Berberabe. Hindi na nakakakita at nakapagsasalita si Samboy dahil sa stroke na nangyari sa kanya, at hiwalay na sila ng dating asawa nang mangyari iyon. Pero invited pa rin siya sa graduation ng anak na naiwan sa dating misis. Ang sarap makita na kahit hiwalay na at ganun sinapit ng dating asawa mo na sumama sa ibang babae, heto at you have a big heart to still welcome him para makasama ng inyong anak."


“At tingnan mo, summa cumlaude ang anak nila Samboy at Darlene kahit pa nga hiwalay sila. Patunay talaga na hindi ang sitwasyon ang gumagawa sa tao, ang tao ang nagdi-decide kung paano niya aayusin ang nangyari sa paligid niya. Kaya iyon ang dahilan kaya sila nawala sa landas o kaya naging delinquents dahil hiwalay parents nila, hindi tutoo. Buhay mo ang aayusin mo, kaya ikaw mag-desisyon. Gusto mo maging maayos nasa iyo iyan. Gusto mo mapasama, nasa iyo din iyon. Like hindi mo aakalain magiging ganun ang kasasapitan ni Samboy na sa isang iglap, bulag at pipi ka na, hindi makakilos physically. Siguro nga, isang gift sa kanya ni God na heto, ipagmamalaki mo ang iyong anak na si Jamie, at thank you sa pagiging mabait ng kanyang ex wife na si Darlene. Sana nga gumaling pa si Samboy,”
