The Honorable the member for Mesopotamia division and Minister of Housing Mr. Michael Finnegan left Belize today for the United States where he is scheduled to undergo surgery to his lower spine.

The wife of the veteran parliamentarian Diane Finnegan today confirmed to Patrick Jones that Mr. Finnegan’s stay in the USA is dependent on the success of the surgery.

The five-time Mesopotamia area representative has a degenerative condition that, when it last flared up, wore down two spinal disks and caused pain in his left leg after touching a nerve root.

Hon. Finnegan is a prostate cancer survivor and has lived all his life with a disability that has affected his arms.

Mr. Finnegan is the second member of the current administration surgery in the United States, the first being Prime Minister Dean Barrow who had back surgery late last year.

We wish Mr. Finnegan a successful treatment and speedy recovery.
