(CMR) Fire victim, Elaine Ricketts (AKA Carmen), is in urgent need of monetary funds to air ambulance her overseas for life-saving emergency medical care.
Ricketts was seriously injured after someone doused her and the house she was living at with some sort of accelerant and deliberately set the place on fire early Wednesday morning.
Sadly, Ricketts does not have any current insurance coverage to assist with her medical expenses. We understand her coverage lapsed a few months ago. The ICU physicians have informed her employer that she needs to go overseas to a facility that has a burn unit and the necessary medical equipment and expertise to provide her with the urgent care that she needs.
The majority of the burns are on her upper body. CMR understands that the cost of the air ambulance alone is CI$25,000. Anyone wishing to make a donation can do so to Bank of Butterfield CID account # 136 111 509 0019.
Anyone requiring additional information can contact Kerry Ann Fearon 323-4969.
