Jamming for Jovi seeks to raise money for critical surgery

The parents of an 8 year old Trinbagonian boy with a severe blood disorder are hosting a charity concert to help raise funds for his cure.

Jovi Mitchell must have a blood transfusion done every two weeks due to the disorder, called Beta Thalassemia Major.

He can be cured with a TT$1.5m bone marrow transplant in Italy and his mother, Anita, says a concert called ‘Jamming for Jovi’ is part of the thrust to raise funds.
