Hello my name is Venus Cherry, most of you know me as Rastaman Cherry.  Today i am seeking help for my mother Fidelity Cherry AKA feday.

My mom has type 2 diabetes and is on insulin.  We recently took a trip to Barbados on november 13th for her green card interview as i had filed for her to come live with me in the USA. 

Upon arrival in barbados, my mom fell sick due to sustaining a stab under her left foot by a nail or some sort of object.  By the 15th of novemebr she had a serious infection was rushed to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in barbados where an immediate surgery to amputate  the Big and second toe on her left foot was deemed necessary by the medical staff to save her foot or even life according to the Surgeon.

I am seeking donations at this point to aid is her medical expenses at Queen Elizabeth and the after care that she will now need for therapy and the nurse that is currently coming to dress her wounds and administer her medication.

Although my mom has 7 of us kids, i am the only one in any position to help her right now, i know my siblings wish they were able to help financially but i know they dont have it. 

My mom is all i got, she has been there with me and for me from day 1. Always supported, loved and guided me in everything i do, so this is why i have no shame or pride to come out publicly like this to seek some help in helping cover her medical bills and get her the proper treatment she needs. 

Once the postOp care doctor in barbados gives the OK i will be bringing my mom from Barbados to live with me here in the USA.

Any of you who may know my mom, knows that shes a loving kind hearted person who will do anything for anyone. Even in her current situation she's so full of life, I think she's handling this situation like a super woman(better than i am), she dont complain, she's always in great spirit and i want to keep a smile on her face and do ALL I POSSIBLE CAN to help her recover from the surgery and get her diabetes under control.

I cannot completely express my full gratitude for any help you may provide, My mom means the world to me and shes all i have.

To all of you who have called, texted, reached out in any way THANK YOU VERY MUCH, for everything ESPECIALLY the prayers.
