PM gives update on wife’s cancer treatment

Dean Barrow

P.M. Barrow returned to the country on Sunday from Miami where his wife, Kim Simplis Barrow, is receiving treatment for stage three breast cancer.  Simplis Barrow is scheduled to undergo a mastectomy having had two tumors detected in her left breast.  P.M. Barrow says he will be out of the country more frequently in the months ahead to remain by his wife’s side during what he says will be a long road to recovery.

“She is doing as well as can be expected but for me, it’s very clear that I will be there to support her. It does mean that I will leave every three weeks as she goes for the chemotherapy treatments and will be out for four or five days each time I go. But with in this world of instant communication, I don’t think that that is as much of a problem as it otherwise might have been. I still intend to keep my finger firmly on the pulse and to ensure that all goes as well as we can make it go in this country. And I said for myself, it’s just a matter of being by her side and being with her as she goes through what is going to be a long and difficult and arduous process.”
