As many of my friends know my beloved home of Virgin Gorda in the BVI was devastated by Hurricane Irma on September 6th. By grace and favor we have our lives while much else is a total loss.
While visiting other family members in the states over the Thanksgiving Holiday, Barbara had a significant health set back. She experienced difficulty breathing due to a collapsed lung because of complications she was unaware of. As a result she has been in the hospital and will now require rehabilitation to gain her ability to walk and continue cancer treatments.
The mounting medical costs for entry into a rehabilitation center and cancer treatments is overwhelming. Medical insurance is unwilling to help pay any of the cost associated with treatment because she is outside the BVI. She is receiving care from the Dana-Farber/ Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center in Boston which is nationally ranked. We are dedicated to keeping Barbara in a place where she can receive the best treatment possible.
With this, her family is asking for help and support from our friends and extended communities.
Any donation large or small would be greatly appreciated. All donations will go to medical bills only. Please continue to pray and send positive thoughts during this time. Barbara is fighting to get back to her independent self!! We love her more than words can ever say.
