Rhenako Beard is my best friend, we have been best friends from first year infants. We like to play football together but not catch and rescue.
When I returned to school this term, Rhenako was not at school. His mother came in with him at the beginning of October and I was happy to see him but I was surprised to see his hair bald. He told me that he is ill, he has cancer and that he is taking treatment to get better. But I miss him and feel very sad. I want him to feel better soon. He told me to do my work well and he is happy when I do well.
On Saturday, Rhenako’s family will be having a sports and fun day at the Nelson Mandela Park (Port of Spain) from 10 am to 4 pm to get the money to help him do a surgery for him to get better. Please come out and support. There is also an account at the Eastern Credit Union, 90275914, to make any contributions.
