It  however, was an unsuccessful visit for young Brighton as doctors in Chetumal explained to family members that there is very little that can be done to improve his condition. Family members were hopeful that with therapy, he would have improved his condition. That however, was not possible and he returned home with very much the same hope which had been given to him by Belizean doctors.

 Ever since the lamentable incident, on July 26th, readers and viewers have followed closely Brighton’s prognosis and his remarkable will to live despite the physical and traumatic trauma his petite body endured.

Brighton and his young nephew Jova, 7, had been injured after a house collapsed on them. The two boys had been playing under the house, when the incident occurred.

And while Jova only received injuries to the foot and leg, Brighton was transported via ambulance to the Karl Husner Memorial Hospital, where we soon learned that he had suffered a cardiac arrest.

After three weeks at the KHMH, Brighton was transferred back to his home town, Orange Walk.

Brighton remained under medical observation at the Northern Regional Hospital and was later released.

Though Brighton is unable to control his movements, he seems very alert and swelling on his face has reduced considerably.

The family is very attentive of Brighton while he is at home and so are close friends.

Two fundraising activities have been held in support of Brighton. Still, Brighton can benefit from more contributions.
