The family of 8-year-old Leslie Lorrimer Junior needs financial help to pay for his medical treatment, according to a GoFundMe page organised this week by Earnell Phillip.
The OKEU Hospital admitted the youngster with fever, muscle, and joint pain followed by vomiting.
And the Bexon Primary School student has been diagnosed with multiple illnesses.
They include acute lymphoblastic leukemia, severe anemia and thrombocytopenia, and hyperbilirubinemia.
The GOfundMe page said the boy’s parents, Leslie Lorrimer and Shauville Charles, received advice to seek medical attention in Barbados or Martinique, but the cost is beyond them.
As a result, Junior’s family needs sixteen thousand Euros to ‘give this precious little boy’ the medical treatment he deserves to get back to his usual way of life.
“No parent should have to worry about losing a child, and no child should have to worry about not being able to be around loved ones,” the GoFundMe page stated.
It described the youngster as a tenacious, vibrant, joyous, loving, and caring individual who loves playing outdoor games and cards, especially ‘UNO.’
According to the family, they would appreciate anything people can give.
