A recent accident survivor, Andy Edwards, desperately needed medical attention after his bus collided with a truck on the Sir Sydney Walling Highway.
The truck had been driving westward and attempted to overtake but failed, causing a collision with Edwards’ vehicle, which was traveling in the opposite direction.
The crash resulted in severe injuries to both of Edwards’ legs, which were pinned under the dashboard.
Due to the severity of his injuries, doctors at the Sir Lester Bird Medical Center recommended orthopedic surgery overseas.
The Calvin Ayre Foundation (CAF), which prioritizes education, sports and social development, also has an emergency response initiative.
CAF’s Media Relations Specialist, Jamilla Kirwan, stated that the cost of medical air ambulance can be an extreme challenge for most people.
In Andy’s case, the cost exceeded $40,000, which was a daunting expense to consider while under intense pain.
Fortunately, CAF was able to help by covering the cost of his air lift to a medical facility in the Cayman Islands, where he underwent orthopedic surgery.
According to Kirwan, Andy was airlifted just in time for the September 25th acceptance deadline.
She extends continued prayers to Andy Edwards during this challenging time, on behalf of the Calvin Ayre Foundation and Ambassador Calvin Ayre.
