Shooting Victim, Anthony Major, needs surgery to live

While the BMDA hope to protect their livelihood in Belize, there is a patient whose needs are those of a medical tourist but he doesn’t have the funds. The shooting victim needs a surgery that is not available locally, and his family hopes that the goodwill of the public will change his life. News Five’s Delahnie Bain reports.

Almost a year ago, on November twenty-sixth, thirty-six year old Anthony Major was shot in the chest. Recovery is still a distant dream as major remains paralyzed and his condition is deteriorating.

“He get shot last November. He has been doing well sometimes and sometimes bad. Now, he is really down, he’s gone I would say. But probably maybe I can get help to bring him up back you know. So I’m asking for help from the public and outside and whosoever because if you see the situation of him right now, his bed sores they are really, really terrible.”

“All my body, is like it’s broken up in pieces. I have to stay in one position for hours and hours and hours. And you know and I know the situation is really critical to stay in a position like this day and night. Day and night, this is what I take pain and pain and pain.”

“How have you been handling this drastic change in your life?”

“I have been handling it with the father so far because I pray to the father and ask him to please help me for all the things I’ve done. The wicked things I’ve done, I ask the father to forgive me and he helps me that’s why I’m still strong with him and going through this situation. But I am asking somebody to take this situation into consideration and help me.”

Major’s mother, Julie Arias has given up her nursing career to treat her son at home. With no other source of income, they are desperately in need of financial assistance.

“Right now mommy, I have to stop work to mine him and you know, without a job… but I was working as a nurse for twenty-nine years you know and I had to stop work to just take care of him because I don’t think anybody would take care of him like how I do as the mother because taking care of bed sores mommy, you gotta know what you’re doing because the huge bed sores that he has mommy, I tell you it’s nothing to play. He would have this whole house smelling so bad if I didn’t know what to do. So I’m trying with him and I’m asking a lot of help if they can help me.  I’m trying, with my daughter’s them and you know. I’m trying to do my best mommy because the colostomy bags they’re twenty dollars for one. But I’m trying, I’m fighting and that’s why I’m asking for help you know.”

Delahnie Bain

“And you’re not gonna give up.”

Julie Arias

“I’m not gonna give up, I’ll go down with him.”

Anthony Major

“I’m doing really bad mommy. Really, really bad I’m doing and I’m really in a situation that I need help from someone. The situation I’m in, I wish they could take it into consideration. I go to Karl Heusner inside and outside and they don’t help me so I’m asking somebody to please reach out and help me with a helping hand. In Jesus name I ask them to help me.”

Chadrick Tingling was charged last December for the Attempted Murder of Anthony Major. Delahnie Bain for News Five.

Arias says the surgery alone is expected to cost around six thousand US dollars. Anyone wishing to assist can call 605-5804 or send an email to guypippia@yahoo.com.

    And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

    I know Anthony “King” Majors too Darlene. And if you have ever been a victim of his (and there are many) you will know what evil is. He harmed a lot of people for no reason other than selfish gain. God is judging him now, that is the point. He is living a life full of pain and suffering at the hand of God. This is vengence for all the pain and suffering he has caused to so many people.

  7. Sandra Usher says:
