The Cayman Islands Fire Services recently gave a donation for Nicholas Powery, who was scheduled to have a kidney transplant last Friday at St. Luke’s Hospital in Houston.
Nicholas, who was diagnosed with end-stage kidney (renal) failure in September 2005, had pre-operative appointments in Texas earlier in that week.
Leading Fireman Mackenzie Robinson presented the donation on behalf of the Fire Services. He encouraged other government departments to also support Nicholas; his mother, Senior Assistant Chief Immigration Officer Dolcy Powery; and the family.
Immigration was the first government department to support the Powery family, with a donation presented earlier this month.
Nicholas’ sister Bethany Powery, who accepted the Fire Services’ donation, expressed the family’s gratitude for the support.
Members of the public who want to contribute to can make donations to Cayman National Bank, USD account number 02217063 or KYD account number 01226899.
