Dangriga Resident Myrick Caliz Needs Medical Assistance

Mark Lizarraga

A well-known Dangriga resident is seeking public assistance for medical attention. Myrick ‘Micro’ Caliz met in an accident at the end of May and was severely injured. He has since been hospitalized at the K.H.M.H., but his family needs to get him out of the country for further treatment. His wife, Nadia Caliz, is making a public plea on his behalf.

 

Nadia Martin Caliz, Seeking Assistance

“He is a very active individual. He does square dancing around Christmas and he plays football. He was a part of the team with Justin Gonzalez that won back to back championship. He is also the four time champion of Habinaha Wanaragua, and now his ability to do all these things is presently a challenge. He got in an accident; eight broken ribs, busted liver, spleen, right shoulder broken, punctured both of his lungs and he breathes with the assistance of tubes, those were removed over the weekend but he is still having difficulty breathing. He has problems with the eyes and a slit in this area that is the skull part I am talking about so we need to get some assistance for him outside of Belize. He has been in K.H.M.H. for the past two weeks and I thank them for the assistance but now I am trying to see how I take him to Merida. So, I am really asking the community, Belizeans at large, to see how they can assist us in this venture.”

“They can call me at 621-7196 or they can deposit in Nadia Caliz or Myrick Caliz Belize Bank account number 625-22-244842 or Scotia Bank 44-02-681.”

“You also have a GoFundMe page; talk to us about that?”

 

Nadia Martin Caliz

“Ok. I have a GoFundMe page. If you go to Bernadette Martin Caliz you will find it there. I also made it public so there are a number of people who will see it on facebook and if they so desire they can make a contribution as well.”

 

Andrea Polanco

“Do you have a specific target that you’d like to reach?”

 

Nadia Martin Caliz

“After consulting with people who have been to Merida, we need somewhere around two hundred thousand dollars to do all of that work because we will definitely have to do some reconstructive work on him as well, because as I said he leans on one side and is having a lot of difficulty breathing.”
