Woman needs help to raise funds for MRI

The violence in the old capital has often been the source of pain and media coverage. But there are families whose pain though not exposed in the news headlines requires reporting. Evadney Jones is a Belize City resident who needs assistance in raising funds to cover her next visit to the doctor. She needs to take a test that costs less than two thousand dollars, but she doesn’t have the cash and needs the public to help.

“I need to have this MRI so that they can know exactly what wrong with the bone. If they have to do surgery to set the bone back because the back bone is not center of my back no more and it is going on the side now. So I no really balanced. The pain very, very bad, rough. The pain dah from all the way from mi back come right down to the foot bottom—all mi toes start to get numb. Dr. Escalante tell me that this I have to worry about. I should worry because it could be the beginning of partial paralysis. When I gone in the hospital they had to wheel me in because I couldn’t stand up, I couldn’t walk. They keep me in overnight and the whole of the other day so I spend like two days and one night in hospital. They treat me and give me voltarine and I don’t remember the next thing, but all in all they managed to get the pain ease, but it doesn’t stay off. I did a surgery already on the back in 2001 and all this time I still with this pain. Ten months after the surgery I got into an accident and that just bring it back on.”

    According to Clinica Caranza’s website they do not do MRI’s, they only do CT Scans; MRI (Resonancia Magnetica) and CT (Tomografia) IS NOT THE SAME THING BE CAREFUL!..The only other options apart from doing it here is at Merida or at Guatemala City.
