Five-year-old With A fighting Spirit

A surprise son for a woman with three daughters – After the initial shock, came much anticipation. However, there was a jolt along the way which required everyone to exercise much strength. Already the mother of three girls at age 38 Tanisha Peterkin tells us they have reasons to celebrate together and individually.

Since Mrs. Peterkin noticed something odd about his jaw, they thought it was what Jamaicans call a ‘wax an canan’, which is really a swelling of the lymph node. Doctors say this could indicate infection if painful when touched. Mom says her baby showed no signs of distress.

On this week’s Inspire Jamaica Kerlyn Brown meets up with a five-year-old with a fighting spirit.
