Child dies before getting brain tumour surgery


My sympathies and condolences to his friends and family...



Stabroek News

One day before he was expected to be operated on for a brain tumour, little Desean Noel passed away at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation.

An aunt of the boy confirmed that the child died at around 11 pm on Tuesday with his parents at his side.

The woman, who said the child had been living with herself and husband since he was five months, told Stabroek News that she was expected to travel to Trinidad with the boy on Tuesday but because of his weakened state he was not allowed to fly.

She said although they had not raised the money an agreement was made that the operation would still be done and payment would be made later. But that was not to be and when he died Desean could neither see nor talk.

His aunt said that when she left the hospital on Tuesday afternoon she sang and prayed with him and he responded with his hand.

"The Lord knows everything, may his soul rest in peace," the aunt said.

The surgery was expected to be performed at the Community Hospital, Cocorite, Trinidad. Because of its urgency Dr Richard Spann had set today for the operation after he agreed to do it at a cost of US$15,000.

First Lady Varshnie Jagdeo's Kids First Fund (KFF) was moving to have the operation done at the Mount Hope Hospital in Trinidad where it would have been less expensive.
