The mother of 11-year-old Kyron Green is happy to report that her son is recovering well after months of medical treatment. Green is a standard 4 student from St. Luke’s Methodist in Belize City who was seriously injured while he was at a store on Central American Boulevard, running an errand for his mother. According to his mother, Marsha Belisle, they came back into the country on October 19 and are on the way to recovery. She added that the recovery process will require substantial funds for treatment and medication.
Marsha Belisle, Mother of Kyron Green: “The different therapies they’ve done because Kyron does speech therapy, he wasn’t using his voice that well. He does speech therapy, he does physio-therapies and he even does education to help his brain function so they get him prepared for school as well. The first stage with that at Shriners they were actually strengthening his bones, his muscles so that those could be ready for him to get up and walk or to move them better because they were like stiff on him so they were working out with those. The first stage has finished but before we came back to Belize what they wanted to do, they had tested him on a stander and when they put him on a stander he tolerated it very well and the physiotherapist noted that the next step for them to do was to put Kyron up in a holster so that he could actually stand up straight and they did that and he started to walk- he could move with the help of a stander. So those are very good signs that everything is working for Kyron and if we continue with that that will get him stronger and he could walk without those. He would have already started school so I plan to send him now in January, I said let’s wait school already started, we came back in October so let me wait. The principal had told me whenever I’m ready we could come and I said let me wait until January and then I will send him back to school in January. Hopefully by then I will get enough funds so that I can arrange with some vehicle to pick him up and drop him to school and bring him back home because the street here is too rocky for me to push him in that wheelchair everyday.”
