Kim Barrow ready to get chemotherapy

Kim Simplis Barrow

There is an update tonight on the Prime Minister’s Wife, Kim Simplis Barrow, who was diagnosed with cancer last week and it is not good news. As we told you in our previous newscast, Simplis Barrow has been undergoing testing at the Baptist Hospital of Miami, where it was confirmed that she has stage three breast cancer. The update today included details that are not normally made public. It is that there are two tumors in her left breast and the cancer has spread to lymph nodes under her left armpit and next to the sternum on her left side. The silver lining is that the cancer has not affected any other organs or parts of the body. Simplis Barrow will have to undergo preoperative chemotherapy followed by a mastectomy, which is the surgical removal of the breast. The chemotherapy will be done in six sessions, which will be three weeks apart. The first session is scheduled for next Tuesday and after a few days of observation; Simplis Barrow plans to return home on November nineteenth. She goes back to Miami in early December for the second round of chemotherapy. In the release from the Press Office, Simplis Barrow expresses heartfelt gratitude to the individuals and organizations countrywide that have been expressing their solidarity and keeping her in their prayers.

    I do support Barrow and his wretched gang BUT I support with my whole heart Mrs. Kim Simplis Barrow. She is a human being and a woman who needs all our support. I have seen her going out to help those in need and now she needs our prayers. We need to support all women suffering from this dreaded disease. Let us pray also for all those unknown women who don’t have the finances to get saved. Women , please do your own checks and go to a professional to get checked on a yearly basis. Kim, God is great and compassionate.He loves you and we love you too. Get well soon.

    I do hope with cancer hitting so close to home, our government will address this need for better diagnosis and treatment of cancer in Belize, I do feel for Simpliss Barrow because dealing with cancer is not as easy as most people think, not only the suffering from the disease but also from its’ treatment and the emotional and psychological effects it has on the patient and their families.
