Help Rea Beat Cancer!
Today is October 31, 2016. It is almost 3 months since Rea did her first surgery on August 4, 2016 to remove her left ovary due to cancer. She is still in the hospital fighting to be a survivor. It has been a long and tiring road but we give thanks for where she is today. She has stared death in the face a few times and we salute her for being so brave and strong. She is our heroine, our super hero, our warrior princess.... She still has so much that she is fighting and is still receiving treatments and chemotherapy. The campaign is being revamped to now support Rea's treatments that she need to live. The bills are unfathomable....
Bill #1 - Air Ambulance - US$16,000
Bill #2 - Hospital 1 - US$62,500
Bill #3 - Hospital 2 so far - US$136,000
Total bills so far - US$214,500
This does not include the fact that Rea's mother is unable to work as she has to tend to her. The day-to-day expenses add up quite quickly also. We have come a long way and we are truly grateful for the support. However, we are pleading once again for the financial support. We cannot do this without you. Please help.
Rea Chin Bowen is an 11 year old Jamaican girl who has been faced with a journey that no child deserves. She has had 3 major surgeries in the past 6 weeks and is still in a critical state. The local hospital has categorically stated that they are no longer able to provide her with the emergency care that she needs right now. We need funds to get her to a Miami hospital that can hopefully increase her chances at survival.
The first surgery involved the removal of her ovary which was completely devoured by a tumor which was partially cancerous at stage 2 grade 2. The 2nd surgery came just 1 week later with the clearing of an intestinal blockage and the removal of the omentum. With further surgery complications such as adhesions on the intestines, inability to eat solid food for weeks, significant weight loss and general deterioration of the body. The 3rd surgery started with the hope to complete an intestinal bypass via the duodenum. However, they discovered further masses on the intestines.
The only hope is to have her transferred to a hospital that is equipped with a competent paediatric hematology and oncology unit. Please help us to get her the medical assistance that she needs to live.
***For full transparency of this campaign, please note that the beneficiary to manage the donated funds is Mrs. Vivienne Chin-James, who is Rea's aunt who currently lives in Florida, USA.***
She still has a long way to go but she is getting there. February will be another month for tests and scans so we ask that you spread the campaign again for these upfront medical costs that are simply unbelievable. ...
We thank you all again for being apart of this journey to share our pain and our happiness. We couldn't have done it without you all.... one love.
#Pray for Rea
We give God all the glory for where she is right now. The past four months have been a test and she is a testimony to all the prayers and well wishes that you have all poured out for her. There is no way that we could have gotten this far without your support in so many ways. As it stands now her body is free of all cancer and we pray that it will remain this way forever. She will complete further scans soon to properly assess her status and future action plans from a treatment perspective. Her body is slowly recovering and she is a breath of fresh air to be around as she continues to inspire all of us with her strenght and determination. Her body and mind will take a long time to be fully normal again but it is heartwarming to look at her today as she smiles more and more. We look back at her many recent days of pain and her near death encounters and we know that God will not let her go back there. Continue to pray for her please. Thank you all again for all that you have done.
