The family of Javier Anderson is overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from private and corporate citizens to assist in raising money for the eight-year-old cancer survivor’s prosthetic leg and physiotherapy.
Javier’s mother, Lizanna Anderson, told Stabroek News that yesterday she met with officials at the Guyana Bank for Trade and Industry (GBTI), where a bank account was opened for the youngster. GBTI has already contributed $60,000 to the account for the boy, who lost his right leg to bone cancer.
