REAL LIFE HORROR: An Update on the Miami "Zombie Attack" Victim; How YOU Can Help

New postby CZW_CJBecker » Tue Jun 12, 2012 5:49 pm

Towards the end of May, the story of a "zombie attack" in Miami became a media craze. If you're not familiar with it, you can read the original story HERE. Now, a couple of weeks later, there has been an update on the condition of the victim in this bizarre story.

Doctors have said that Ronald Poppo is awake & alert after the horrifying ordeal. His nose & left eye are gone. 50% of his face is missing as opposed to the originally reported 75%. Doctors are hopeful he will have vision in his right eye in the future, but it's too early to tell. Poppo also has a minor brain injury & 2 wounds that possibly game from police gunshots used to kill his assailant. Surprisingly, Poppo also isn't taking any major medications; just antibiotics for a minor infection.

Despite all of this, it's reported that Poppo is remaining positive & upbeat. He likes discussing the Miami Heat & is hoping to go swimming again soon.

HOW YOU CAN HELP


A fund to assist Poppo has been established by the Jackson Memorial Fund. So far, $15,000 has been raised for him. Donations can be made through Neighbors 4 Neighbors by calling (305) 597-4404. You can also make a donation through the Jackson Memorial Foundation website, http://www.jmf.org. Click the “Take Action Now” tab, and then click on donations. Once you are on the donation page, select “other” in the contribution details section and input: Ronald Poppo.

You may also write a check to Jackson Memorial Foundation and include Mr. Poppo’s name in the memo portion. Checks can be mailed to:

Jackson Memorial Foundation
Park Plaza East
Suite G
901 N.W. 17th Street
Miami, FL 33136

Thank you for posting this. Much as we have been horrified and poked fun at this story, I'm glad to see some still have a mind to help.

I am glad there is a place that we can help. I am actually suprised that his face has healed up this much. This guy is a fighter.
