Baby Timera's Eye Cancer Treatment

$1,840 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 52 people in 35 months
Little Timera Brown is two years and four months old. Two weeks ago she was diagnosed with bilateral retino blastoma (Cancer in both eyes). This cancer diagnosis is terrible news, but especially hard when you know the history of this beautiful little girl. It would appear that the cards were stacked against her from day one.
At just six weeks old she was given up by her mother who was unable to take care of her. Since then she has been in the care of by Sister Sonia Black and her husband, Winston Black who have loved this little child as if she was their very own.

Dr. Smith, an Ophthalmologist, in Mandeville and Dr. Calder at the University Hospital of the West Indies have been providing care for little Timera. The results of an ultrasound of the eyes and a CT scan on September 9, 2016 have confirmed the diagnosis of bilateral retino blastoma. (Cancer of the eyes).  

We need your help to fund the cost of Timera’s cancer treatment overseas as treatment for this condition is not available in Jamaica, but in the United States.  My sister, Sheron in the United States is assisting us with the coordination of care for Baby Timera. 

Dr. Calder has stated that she must begin treatment within the next two months to improve her chances of saving even one eye. Please support Timera’s cancer treatment fund and help to give her a fighting chance.
Time is running out.

Please keep her in your prayers and remember whatever you can contribute however small will be appreciated. Thank you all so much.

God Bless,  

Sister Sonia Black

Friends and family! I am happy to announce that Timera is on her way from Jamaica to St. Jude children 's research hospital in Memphis TN today to start treatment.

There was weeks of delays in obtaining a visa for entry to the country due to hurricane Matthew , which causes closure of the embassy and rescheduling of appointments. However, God is always ever present and everything finally works out for the family.

Please continue to send in your donations and share the page with friend and family for support. Please pray for the child and family in this time of need and that God will send his angels to watch over her as she undergoes treatment.

The funds donated will go toward paying medical bills previously incurred when Tamera was first diagnosed, and will continue for payment of medical and follow up care that will be needed when she returns back to her country. I will be personally withdrawing the funds and delivering the funds to the family via wire transfer or check.




Sincerely, Sheron Travers on behalf of Sonia Black

Friends and family! I am happy to announce that Timera is on her way from Jamaica to St. Jude children's research hospital in Memphis TN today to start treatment.

There was weeks of delays in obtaining a visa for entry to the country due to hurricane Matthew , which causes closure of the embassy and rescheduling of appointments. However, God is always ever present and everything finally works out for the family.

I am withdrawing the funds on behalf of the campaign to an account in the USA for the the family. I am the sister of Sonia Black who is the the legal guardian of Timera. If not, the page will not be able to continue accepting funds due to policy and procedures. The recipient is 2 years old and is unable to do so. They would also need to be a US citizen with a valid SS# to accept funds.

The funds will be sent to Sonia Black , parent / legal guardian of Timera. The family has assured us that your donations will go directly to paying the medical bills previously incurred in Jamaica when the child was first diagnosed. It will also be spent on any future medical and follow up treatment upon returning home after treatment in the US. Let us continue to pray that the Timera will have a safe and effective treatment regiment.

Please continue to show your love and support by donating, encourage family and friends to donate and share the page. Let us fight to eradicate childhood cancer!

Sincerely, Sheron Travers on behalf of Sonia Black

Dear Family and friends, thank you so much for your prayers and your support of Timera’s cancer treatment fund. God has answered our prayers and we are happy to report that St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital has agreed to treat Timera. This means her family will not be required to bear the costs of surgery and chemotherapy. In light of this we are reducing our GoFundMe goal. The money raised will be used to pay Timera’s local medical expenses incurred so far including the costs for CT scans and ultrasounds. It will also cover related and incidental expenses as the hospital has indicated that her treatment and recovery may last over a year.
Hopefully, Timera will leave for the United States next week. We ask you to pray that her surgery and follow-up treatment will be successful. What a mighty God we serve! We will continue to provide you with updates on her progress. God Bless you all for your kindness.
