Charles Off To Boston Hospital

  • Written by  Rawle Paterson
Charles Off To Boston Hospital

After several challenges the way has been cleared for Shermor Charles to wing his way off to the Shriners Hospital in Boston today, Friday March 17 to commence remedial work on the badly affected upper parts of his body.

For several months now a team of people led by Corine Milne, have been have been working hard to have the teenager, who was badly burnt in a fire, access the necessary surgery so that his life could return to normal.

One of the challenges the team had encountered during the process to finalize the trip for Shermor and his sister, Christonia  (who would be traveling as his guardian)was finding accommodation for the two while in Boston.

Milne who was accompanied by Valarie Browne-Matherly, a Boston attorney-at-law said that the youngman’s first visit to the doctor would be on Tuesday March 21.

“We have airline tickets which were donated, money for food and a place to stay with a family where the lady is a pediatrician”, said Milne.

She said the present challenge is to source  about US$2,000.00 to pay the organization, which located the home where Shermor and his sister would stay for a three-month period.

She added that there was significant assistance from individuals and organizations that were committed to ensuring that Shermor traveled to Boston to have his injuries treated.

Milne says that the last month has been one of great success for her and her team as they sought to ensure that Shermor and his sister would be comfortable in Boston.

“In February I met several persons from the Boston community who were holidaying here and who kindly consented to assist the two with various services such as groceries, money, sightseeing, clothing among others”, she disclosed.

Shermor is currently a form two student at the Hillsborough Secondary School.  It is expected that this, the first of many visits to the Boston-based hospital, would take three months, causing him to miss classes.  

“We have made arrangements to have the school furnish him with some books to continue his studies as well as we are trying to locate a school in the Boston area which he would be able to attend while undergoing treatment”, said Mrs Milne.

The team of persons working on behalf of the young burn victim has also set up a Shermor Charles fund at the Carriacou branch of the Grenada Cooperative Bank.The account number is 511000661.
