Parents plead for assistance in getting 7-year-old son medical care

The parents of a seven-year-old boy plead for assistance to get their son a life-saving medical procedure.

He has been diagnosed with a blood disorder which reduces the production of hemoglobin and can lead to heart and liver failure.

Jannelle Bernard brings us his story.

Anyone wishing to help assist Jovi and his family can make a donation directly to First Citizens Bank via the account number 2481782 or via cheque to The Society for Inherited and Severe Blood Disorders.
