“Weeping may endure for tonight but joy comes in the morning,” were the words recited by Bernadette Jackson whose grandson , Kenneth Prince, is the victim of a chronic heart problem has finally received all the financial resources necessary for him to be flown to India to undergo surgery.
Although the infant has not yet undergone surgery his family members, including Kenneth Prince Senior, are all highly optimistic of him having prolonged life; since, according to Jackson, the doctor has promised 90 percent success of the surgery.
Jackson told this publication that she is positive that “there is a God”. When it seemed like all was lost God sent a man whom she referred to as an “angel”, to assist in saving “this innocent child’s life”.
According to Nicole Jackson, the ailing child’s mother, kind hearted citizens of Guyana are the responsible persons for her strength she had during the entire ordeal.
Prince is now expected to go to India on October 24 to undergo surgery.
Among the persons who have made a contribution to ‘Kenneth’s surgery fund’ are the Ministry of Health which contributed the sum of US$5,000; and Ahilia/Bishwa Panday who donated $200,000 specifically for the ticket from Guyana to Canada.
Hamley Case also played an integral part in the proceedings by donating US$2,100 which is intended to cover the cost of the plane ticket from Canada to India. In addition, he donated a further US$500 to assist with food and necessary clothing for the weather.
Case told this publication that the funds were donated by the Fred Case Education Trust (FCET).
He added that The FCET was the idea of Fred Case, Guyana’s first Guyanese-born Director of Education (1960) who died in May 1989. Registered in the UK in June 1989 the trust is administered by FWE’s son, Frederick Hamley Case.
“This does not end here,” Hamley Case said. The man said that the trust has paid entirely or partially for the education of a number of Guyanese residents in Guyana and also overseas. When Prince reaches “school age” he will be supported by the trust.
Case further added, “Don’t worry about transportation to the airport. That will be taken care of”.
Other kind-hearted citizens and organizations include The Three Rivers Kids Foundation, Adam Harris, members of full Gospel Church, Giftland Office Max, Bibi of Ministry of Health, Staff of Georgetown Public Hospital, overseer of Mahaica village office, Nigel’s supermarket and many more too numerous to mention. “We thank you please keep us in prayer,” Ms Jackson said.
According to a medical report produced by Nichole Jackson; the infant was diagnosed with a congenital Cyanotic heart disease at four months of age. He exhibited signs of failure to thrive and a cardiac murmur was discovered along with central and peripheral cyanosis.
An echocardiography done by a Cardiologist at the Caribbean Heart Institute (CHI) suggested Tetralogy of Fallot and an urgent surgical intervention is recommended.
