Today we're writing requesting your help and support. Last week a great friend of The Conscious Carnivore, Steve Acheson, had to undergo emergency back surgery for a condition called Cauda Equina Syndrome. This syndrome is the equivalent of a stoke or heart attack for the back. Even if the pressure is alleviated within twenty-four hours through surgery, nerve damage could be permanent. Steve's surgery removed a large part of a disc in his back to relieve the pressure on his spinal cord.
Because the road to recovery is still uncertain, he and his family are not sure what they will be looking at for future medical expenses. Steve and wife, Stephanie, run Peacefully Organic Produce & CSA--much of his produce we use in the shop--and while he is in recovery won't be able to work on the farm. Everyone that works at the farm is pitching in to make sure all the farm work, CSA, and farm markets can still be a possibility this year.
One of the POP CSA members, Paula Drew, has set up a gofundme.com page for Steve and the farm. We, and they, appreciate any donation you can give, big or small. If you are not apble to donate, please share the page with those that can. The link to learn more, and to donate is: www.gofundme.com/popcsa
The Conscious Carnivore will also be hosting a 4 for Peace this weekend. We will be donating 4% of our sales Saturday-Monday to Steve and his family. Please do stop in this weekend and help us support our friend.
Thank you. Wishing you all the best.
