KINGSTON, Jamaica – Shakera Facey who was last week positively diagnosed with having a rare cancer of the bone died last night at the Hope Institute shortly after 10:00, her father Vincent confirmed to OBSERVER ONLINE a short while ago.

Shakera, whose plight was recently highlighted in the Jamaica Observer, received overwhelming support from readers as strenuous efforts were made in attempt to save her life.


Facey and her father Vincent, who hails from Redwood in Linstead, St Catherine, received numerous phone calls from people showing an interest in assisting the teen to get back on her feet.

Vincent was distraught this morning when speaking to Observer reporter Donna Hussey-White saying he was unable to talk much as he was just going round and round trying to deal with the death of his daughter.
