Prime Minister joins ailing wife for urgent medical treatment in U.S.

Kim Simpliss Barrow

The Prime Minister left the country earlier today for Miami where his wife, Kim Simpliss Barrow is receiving treatment for breast cancer. Simpliss Barrow was re-admitted to the hospital on Sunday evening after developing complications relating to the cancer treatment. Having concluded chemotherapy, she is now receiving radiation. As we understand it, her heart was not pumping to capacity which required her immediate hospitalization. Tests show that Simpliss Barrow has water in her lungs and only ten percent of her heart is functioning. She is also anemic. The Prime Minister will be out of the country for the rest of the week. The D.P.M., Gaspar Vega, will be functioning as acting prime minister.

    My prayers are with Mrs. Barrow.

    While it is difficult to prevent Cancer, and this is not related to the above story, we gotta keeP reminding our belizeans that the other horrible disease HIV can be prevented by using condoms and minimizing your sex partners to just one. HAVE YOU TAKEN YOUR HIV TEST?

    I Would never wish this upon anyone and to hell with politics, this is a time for all Belizeans to pray for Kiim and everyone else who is battling this disease. I am a survivor who also lost my wife of 37yrs. to this evil disease in Februray, so to you “whyaminosurprise”, you never know until it knock’s at your door. To the Barrow Family, this is a very crucial time in your lives and Kim need you all more than ever now. You all must be strong for her and remind her to always have “HOPE” to cling on to and it’s not over until God say so. By HIS (JESUS) Stripes, Kim is HEALED. Been there done that and may The Almighty Father Bless you all during this very rough time.
