Top-flight dancehall selector Teon 'Chris Dymond' Bogle answered the call of a wailing father Dwight Forrester, and has stepped forward and donated cash to assist with his daughter's medical expenses for a well-needed surgery.
THE STAR understands that the reconstructive surgery is for Tamara Fearon, the woman who was shot and injured in February by her ex-husband and former Jamaica defence force soldier Wilbert Pryce.
Fearon's mother Maxine Fearon was killed during the attack in Bryan's Hill, Clarendon.
The family has since been trying to cope with the loss of a loved one, as well as funeral expenses coupled with surgery for Fearon who is out of hospital yet suffering, as seven bullets are still lodged in her body and need to be removed.
Information reaching The STAR is that the surgery was to be done on Monday, March 18; however, lack of funds caused the process to be delayed as reports are that the family was told that hospital staff would not be performing the surgery until $314,000 is paid over.
Chris Dymond told THE STAR the reason why he contributed $30,000 to this worthy cause.
"I was practically involved in a fundraiser recently to save a little girl by the name of Kajiha Mundie. We got some assistance but failed in our efforts because sadly she passed away. I saw the girl's father on the news and mi a say jah know, as a man of the dancehall mi just feel like if mi contribute and give the family hope; others would follow suit," Chris Dymond said.
He continued, "I know how it feels to be in need of help or assistance so mi see eye to eye when mi hear the father's cry. Mi even vex how the hospital ago take a stance like that and is a life at risk!"
When The STAR contacted Fearon's father, Dwight Forrester, and told him that a selector wanted to help, the family he was pleased.
He said, "I am grateful people have been responding, some by making a pledge and some giving encouragement and moral support and sentiments as it relates to what has happened. We have made some payment and we have signed an agreement with the hospital."
The STAR also understands that since Forrester's public plea for assistance, the hospital has made them an offer.
According to Forrester, the family has until Tuesday, March 26 to pay the balance in full.
Our news team was told that as a result, the surgery was conducted yesterday at the Kingston Public Hospital by a special unit that conducts facial reconstructive surgery.
Anybody who wishes to donate may do so at NCB A/c no. 644064336.
In February, a manhunt was put out for ex-Jamaica Defence Force soldier Wilbert Pryce, who shot and injured his wife and killed her mother in Bryan's Hill, Ballards River, Clarendon.
Maxine died on the spot while Tamara reportedly received nine shots to her body.
According to police reports, Pryce turned himself in to police at the May Pen Police Station on Saturday, March 2.
