Road crash victim gets help from medical foundation

THE Jamaica Medical Foundation (JMF), at its 33rd Annual General Meeting held recently, presented a cheque for $300,000 to Courtney Johnson, who was injured seriously in a motor vehicle crash that left him in a semi-disabled state which requires extensive medical treatment for him to have the possibility of regaining walking mobility and other associated incapacities.

"Arrangements have already been made with his medical consultants for implementation of the medical treatment that will be of assistance," the JMF said in a release. The donation, said the foundation, represents only part of the extensive medical treatment that should enable Johnson to again function normally.

The JMF has been in existence since 1988 and over this period of time has made donations to needy individuals and institutions totalling more than $30 million under its theme: 'Providing a Lifeline to Health'.
