GoFundMe bid for brain tumour student picks up steam

The past students’ association of Anchovy High School in St James has established a GoFundMe account for Kaylia Pinnock, the 15-year-old student facing a J$242,000 bill to get medical help for her Stage Two brain tumour.
The GoFundMe account, which was launched on May 30, came in the aftermath of The Gleaner highlighting her plight. So far, US$6,400 of the US$15,000 target has been realised from 150 donors.
In appealing for support for Kaylia, the page stated that she was in dire need of help to confront the life-threatening medical condition that has kept her out of school since the start of the year and has plunged her 42-year-old sweet-vending mother, Velma Latchman, into a state of despair.
