Mrs. Kim Simplis Barrow
With one in eight women likely to get breast cancer at one time or another in their lives, it’s a topic that makes an awful lot of women extremely nervous.
Today Belizeans heard the news that Mrs. Kim Simplis Barrow, the wife of the Prime Minister of Belize has been diagnosed with breast cancer, and is seeking urgent medical attention in
. Miami, Florida USA
Being diagnosed with cancer is very serious; it is something you shouldn’t take lightly. Leading up to the diagnoses you get the usual array of tests: bone scans, CT, blood tests, etc., which can determine the stage of the cancer and level of treatment. Approximately fourteen years ago a family member was diagnosed and treated successfully for stage 3 breast cancer with chemotherapy. Chemotherapy is a treatment which is very beneficial, but has some serious side effects. Treatment with chemo can wipe out all your cells; the good and the bad, including fertility, but that is the price we pay when the alternative is giving cancer the benefit of the doubt.
The fact that most people don’t know, is that the
Belize Cancer Center is capable of administering chemotherapy to cancer patients. However, they lack the funds to be able to properly treat the cancer patients in our country. Cancer affects us all whether it is Mrs. Barrow or the average Belizeans. We wish Mrs. Barrow a speedy recovery and prayers go out to Prime Minister Barrow and the family. Please keep in mind that the Belize , more that ever needs our donations and support. Belize Cancer Center
