If you are not yet aware of Alec Cabacungan, in North-America nearly everyone knows him. He is a young disabled American man of around 20 (in 2022) that grew up with Brittle Bones Syndrome, which causes impaired growth in his body and causes him to easily get his bones broken. He is also tied to a wheelchair because of the weakness of his legs.
Payments from Shriners Hospital
Shriners Children’s Hospital of Chicago, USA, has been treating his very challenging and very costly disease since he was a young child. The close support he enjoyed there allowed him to grow up to a healthy, be it still handicaped man, as the syndrome is irreversible. In exchange the boy gladly allowed them to feature him in countless advertisements of their medical services. He received a fee for this work. The exact amount was not disclosed under the terms of the contract. It can be several thousand dollars for each appearance on the screen.
Path to Financial Independence
His integrity and charm and the empowering content of his speeches made him a known and beloved figure, not only among parents and disabled children but also among sports fans, and gradually, through countless promotion videos and events, he evolved into a true celebrity.
Alec’s successful career as a motivational speaker has certainly not impoverished his wallet. And this area is where we are going to dive into next.
Keep in mind that our figures are our best estimates. We can’t be entirely certain what income he may have accumulated outside of public view, but we can realistically expect that most of what celebrities earn is destined to leak out in one way or the other. In modern, developed, societies, government regulations, as well as the power of the free press, assure that no one can keep all their riches private, most of the time.

Alec from Shriners Source of Income
Alex’s income comes from making videos, attending and featuring events both on empowerment of disabled children as well as sports events and creating his own sports journalism shows.
Sport has always been a favorite hobby of Alec’s, one which he shares with his dad. When he was young he dreamed of being a sportsman himself but he soon realized
that his physical condition would not permit him to do that. He however did and does some sports with other disabled people, but to really satisfy his sports-itch, instead of becoming an athlete himself, he has been studying it, and decided he wants to become a sports commentator. He has already been practicing it in his own sports’ youtube videos in which he talks about sports and interviews widely known athletes.
