St. Kitts and Nevis (WICB): After months of treatment in the USA, Kittitian cricketer Codville Rogers, who was diagnosed with Lymphoma Cancer in 2012, is back to his normal way of life and commended all who assisted him in his time of need. The top order batsman, who represented St. Kitts for over 15 years and had stints in Leeward Islands team, has said thank you to all who assisted him during his difficult time while seeking treatment.
“For the past few months I have been doing some intense treatment in Miami. It went well I must say I have to give thanks and praise to the All Mighty God. “I also want to thank the St. Kitts-Nevis Association in Florida for its assistance and my friend in Miami who I was staying with. His name is Orville Depo Benjamin. He is also from Sandy Point. I also want to thank his wife Kristal Benjamin and not forgetting Elvis James who was very nice to me and I did not even know who he was when I first went to Miami; as well as everyone else who helped in any way. If I begin to call name I will get in trouble, so I want to thank everybody.
“I would like to say thanks to an organization in America called the Benevolent Society in New York. They really assisted me greatly. They were really on board, and all the other people in Miami. People gave their support all over…praise and financial.”
He also thanked the St. Kitts Cricket Association for its efforts in assisting him. “I just want to tell them thanks a lot for everything and I am grateful for what they did to assist me.” Continuing in his commendation, Rogers said, “I want to thank all the churches and groups that held fundraisers for me. I would like thank my friend Kenny Douglas who assisted me, as well as everyone else who helped in any way…those who called and showed their support.”
