Lydia touches Inter Primary massive
The huge crowd attending the annual Gulf Insurance InterPrimary event yesterday at the ETW Park was obviously deeply touched by an address given by Sports Coordinator within the Ministry of Education, Lydia Claxton.
Lydia who is currently in the USA receiving treatment in her fight against breast cancer spoke to the live audience via cell phone, graciously coordinated by Education Officer, Andrea Bussue.
In her address Lydia gave thanks to God for bringing her through thus far and thanked all who would have contributed to her cause whether through prayer or through their finances. She was also high in praise for the efforts of her colleagues at the Education Department who had initiated a fund raising drive which was brilliantly executed on the day of the big event.
She also lauded the efforts of the Nevis Island Government, with special reference to Premier Joseph Parry and Minster of Health, Hon Hensley Daniel.
Lydia further informed the audience that even as she spoke she was at the hospital for her third treatment in chemotherapy and is scheduled to do three more.
She took time out to congratulate the Principals, Teachers, Coaches and the athletes and wished them all well on their big day.
At the end of her address, it was no surprise that several persons were wiping tears from their eyes.
