A community rallies together to try and keep a young Caymanian to medical school.
We recently brought you the story of Ronaldo Goff, a medical student who dreams of becoming a pathologist.
To cover the cost that government scholarships do not cover, Goff’s family and friends held a fish fry on Saturday (24 March.)
They raised $2400 on the day in donations and food sales.
But they said they will continue to persevere to raise funds.
“As a Caymanian, we would like for another doctor to come home and he wants to become a pathologist. He’s had this dream for quite a long time and the funds are low and if we don’t get the support you know, then he will pretty much have to cut it off in about 3 months and we’re asking everyone to come out and support,” said Mr. Goff’s mother Gwedolee Goff.
The family will throw another fish fry 21 April at West Bay Primary school.
