Nat’l Bank raises over $1K to support 4yo cancer patient

PRESS RELEASE: National Bank of the Virgin Islands is happy to support the efforts of Jasmine Watson in her attempt to raise funds for her grandson, Jahdiel Watson.

In a collaborative effort which included the pooling of sums donated by the National Bank of the Virgin Islands together with personal donations from members of staff, NBVI successfully raised $1,570.00.

The short handover ceremony was held at the bank’s main branch where Ms Watson was presented with the donation in support of 4yr old Jahdiel who was diagnosed with kidney cancer in January 2019.

Ms Watson was very thankful and expressed her utmost gratitude for the contribution which she stated would certainly contribute to Jahdiel’s medical expenses.

Joy Francis, Chief Executive Officer of National Bank commented: “By detecting cancer at its earliest stage, we seize the greatest opportunity for a success story. We are happy that Jahdiel has begun his treatment and is on the road to recovery.  NBVI donates to the BVI Cancer Society annually; however, Jahdiel’s story touched me and I felt led to do a special donation towards his cause. I also wish to encourage other corporates and the wider community to contribute where possible.”

Jahdiel’s mom and dad have recently relocated to Miami so that he can undergo radiation and chemotherapy and this donation will assist in defraying some of those costs. If you would like to donate to JAHDIEL WATSON or to learn more on how you can assist, please contact Ms Jasmine Watson on +284 543 9988.
