The Jamaica Medical Foundation (JMF), responded to an appeal for help for Cancer Victim Charles Willis of Old Harbour Bay, St. Catherine which was published in the Daily Gleaner.   A cheque in the amount of $50,000 was presented to the wife of Mr. Willis by the Foundation at the 2016 Blast Off Seminar of the Jamaica Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (JAIFA) held at the Jamaica Conference Centre on January 12. This was to assist Mr. Willis who was discharged from the hospital but could not leave because of his need to purchase oxygen supply to keep him alive at home.

Mrs. Willis expressed her gratefulness for the assistance from the JMF and indicated that the funds will enable Mr. Willis to be with his family.   In early February, Mrs. Willis contacted the JMF Chairman to indicate that Mr. Willis was able to spend three weeks with his family but eventually died.   The JMF therefore, provided further financial assistance with the burial of Mr. Willis.
