A re-run of the locally-produced film 21 Days will show this week to support Mc Arthur Desir who’s in need of a heart transplant.
The viewing dates are on Tuesday, May 27 and Wednesday, May 28 at the Caribbean Cinema from 6:30 p.m.
Forty-year-old Desir suffers from severe cardiomyopathy. His family and friends have been trying to raise US$200,000 to help him get a heart to treat his condition.
Saint Lucia News Online understands he is in Martinique awaiting to go to Paris, France for a heart transplant.
In February, an account was created for Desir on GiveForward – an online fundraising website and one of the easiest ways to raise money for a loved one in need, as the site’s objective states.
The fundraiser ended on May 18, 2014 with 146 donations. It is not clear how much money was raised through that effort.
Desir, a husband and father of two children, was diagnosed with the condition in 2013. He has undergone operation on his heart, including triple bypass surgery on his wife’s birthday and a procedure to treat narrow or weak arteries with a small mesh tube.
All proceeds from 21 Days will be put up for Desir’s medical costs.
