$10k for Calypso Monarch Dynamite

Thank you for visiting the campaign of The Mighty Secret to raise $10,000 (US) for the welfare of fellow Calypsonian, Dynamite (Lawrence Davis).  Some of you may know Dynamite from back in the late 70’s when he debuted his calypso career with “Peas, Potatoes, Pumpkins” which was a satirical social commentary lamenting on the dominant Anguilla political party of the time, the People's Progressive Party (PPP) lead by Father of the Nation, the late Ronald Webster.  Dynamite has been continuously in the top tier of Anguilla Calypsonians for over 40 years and was crowned Calypso Monarch in 2007 with “We want to know” and “A day for the Father”.

Dynamite was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2015 and is now medically incapacitated and unable to work.  He has exhausted all his savings over the last three years pursuing medical treatment in many countries around the world from Anguilla and St. Maarten to several visits to the USA.  With no medical insurance, as is common in Anguilla, the only option left is receiving help from his family and friends and the kind people of Anguilla.  I'm asking for your help to present Dynamite with a check of $10,000 (US) for the immediate repayment of over $4,000 (US) medical debt accumulated in Anguilla, and to defray some of the costs of his high ongoing medical treatment.

The people of Blowing Point are doing their part with a luncheon fundraiser on Saturday, October 27th, 2018 on the Cricket Field in Blowing Point starting at 11:30am.  In coordination with his daughter, Ms. Chanicia Frederic, and the people of Blowing Point, please join me in presenting a check for $10,000 (US) for welfare and medical treatment of my friend, Dynamite at the this luncheon.
