On this day, a lovely sunny afternoon of May 26 in Miami, FL, 65-year old Ronald Poppo was resting at nearby sidewalk by the beach. He was suddenly tackled, clothes ripped off, and pinned to the ground. Then the unthinkable, the unimaginable, began. His face was literally eaten off of his body by his assailant. For up to 18 minutes, his young, strong attacker, high on a designer drug cocktail known to produce effects similar to lsd, pcp, and meth all at once, was unstoppably eating Ronald's face. Witnesses to the attack hailed police, who arrived to help Ronald. When commands, warnings, and injury could not stop the attacker, he was fatally wounded and paramedics were able to get to Ronald, who by this time was barely conscious and writhing in pain. He was rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center where he remains in critical condition, with losing 75% of his face.

About Ronald:
Ronald Poppo is a 65-year old man. He is homeless, and has been for at least 30 years. His family remains unknown, and his friends describe him as cheerful, polite, and friendly to one and all, friends and strangers alike. He will need extensive medical care, extreme reconstructive surgery, short and long-term mental healthcare, and most of all, community support.

What We Can Do to Help:
We can join together as union and help out with whatever we have. His medical bills will be as extraordinary as his suffering. His pain, trauma, and depression will be excruciating. His faith in humanity will be shattered. He need not suffer this alone, and we can help.

All donations received will be used only for this purpose, and the total donations will be issued by check to Jackson Memorial Hospital for Ronald Poppo's medical expenses.
