Randy Frederick to be discharged from Barbados hospital today


Randy Frederick, who successfully underwent surgery at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Barbados last week for a brain tumor, will be discharged from the facility today.

A family source said that Frederick is expected to remain in Barbados under private care where he will kept under continuous observation and undergo physical and mental therapy.

However his recovery is continuing at a tremendous pace, his family said.

Frederick, 19 from the Carib Territory, left Dominica two weeks ago and was admitted at the Barbados facility where doctors performed surgery to remove the tumor. The price of the surgery is tagged at approximately EC$40,500.

News that Frederick’s recovery is progressing well have filled his family and friends with joy. They are optimistic that he might be home for Christmas.

Meanwhile a concert is being prepared to raise additional funds to meet the cost of the surgery.

Assistance has already come from the Ross University School of Medicine, the National Youth Council, TDN Radio Canada and other agencies.

Anyone interested in assisting should call 1-767-317-4944 or make contributions using the account that has been setup to deal with the expenses of the surgery at the National Bank of Dominica.

NBD account number: 3155-00058
Account Name: SMP-NGO-Operating Fund
Swift code: BOSAUS3N

Randy’s plight gained national attention since the tumor was discovered by doctors in March 2010. The tumor kept the teen in constant debilitating pain and doctors in Dominica finally came to the decision that emergency surgery was necessary.
