The Flow Foundation donated J$1 million to the Bustamante Hospital for Children’s paediatric cancer fund, boosting the number of patients who will benefit from care.
The donation was made at a surprise treat hosted by the Foundation for the children on December 8.
Following the donation, the Foundation’s chairman, Stephen Price, said “We’re happy that we’re able to make this annual donation to the Pediatric Cancer Fund so that the children can continue to get the help they need. The donation is even more critical at this time as parents grapple with the challenges brought on by the pandemic.”
The hospital’s acting CEO, Camile Panton, in responding to the contribution, said, “We cannot begin to tell you the difference the Fund makes to our patients. Words are simply not enough to express our appreciation.”
The Pediatric Cancer Fund has assisted with critical tests required to care and treat more than 30 young cancer patients since its launch in 2015.
