Kyron Green Shows Signs of Improvement, but Still Paralyzed

Kyron Green

Eleven-year-old Kyron Green remains hospitalized at the K.H.M.H. after being shot in the face on May seventeenth.  The Standard Four student of Saint Luke Methodist remains paralyzed from the neck down but has been making significant progress, given a poor prognosis in the wake of his near-fatal injury.  The family is in the process of raising funds to airlift young Kyron to a medical facility in the United States where he would be able to receive specialist treatment.  According to Mark Usher, Kyron is not only breathing on his own, but he is also responsive in one of his lower limbs.  The family is now turning to the public for assistance in raising the funds needed.

“This morning, I spent like half an hour with his physiotherapist who was doing electric stimulation and all of that and the good news is, he reported that Kyron is responding in his left leg.  I will also say that he wasn‘t on the breathing machine, so he was literally breathing on his own, almost ninety-five percent.  Compared to where he was last week, this is very, very good news and it‘s very encouraging.  If you speak to him, if I’m on that side of the bed and I say Kyron, he rolls his eyes and looks over.  If somebody is on the next side, he responds.  So his mental functions are clearly there, but there is still some level of paralysis below his shoulder.”

“Now I understand that the family has come together to organize a fundraising event to see how they can continue to help cover the cost of his expenses.  Talk to us about that.”

“So Kyron is blessed with a lot of family, so on his mom’s side, Marsha, who is my sister…  So what we have done is that the two families have come together and we have chosen to representatives from each family, myself on the mom’s side and Kyron’s grandfather, Mr. Griffith Green, he works at Heritage Bank.  And so what we have done is went and first got an account established at Heritage Bank of which myself, Mr. Griffith and Marsha, the mom, will administer that account.  So that any support or any fundraising activity that we get, that will ensure that all that money goes directly to Kyron’s care.  So now what we have done is that we have come up with a plan.  The plan is to do our part in Belize where we will do continuous fundraising get him out.”
