WIFI raising funds for Wickham’s cancer fight

A charity is looking to raise $200 000 to help former manager of the Frank Collymore Hall, Francine Wickham-Jacobs, in her battle with cancer.

During a press conference yesterday at the Courtney Blackman Grande Salle of the Tom Adams Financial Centre at Church Village, The City, Cynthia Ralston, a member of the What If It (WIFI) group, and a cousin of Wickham-Jacobs, widely known as Fran Wickham, said her relative had been full of life until she was diagnosed with Stage 3 myeloma cancer (a type of blood cancer that develops from plasma cells in the bone marrow).

Ralston said Wickham-Jacobs possessed several talents which included painting, adding she was a cultural officer at the National Cultural Foundation and managed the Frank Collymore Hall for close to 15 years. She was also bandleader of 1 Trini & A Bajan. (SB)
