Toby Hemenway – Permaculture Crusader – Needs Your Help
Sadly, tragedy struck Toby and his family in 2015. In the fall of that year, he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. After undergoing chemotherapy, he was nevertheless told that his cancer had spread from his pancreas to his liver. While Toby had recently begun his second round of chemo in October, he developed septic shock just last month. Septic shock occurs when an immune system weakened by cancer allows for a widespread infection in the blood, as well as dangerously low blood pressure. Since, additional scans show the cancer continues to spread. As of last week, Toby has signed up for home hospice.
The Permaculture Research Institute encourages the permaculture community to rally behind Toby and his family in this very trying time, to show love and support whatever comes their way. During the upcoming holidays, as most of us are spending time with our families and appreciating our many blessings, take a moment to remember those who have been hit with unexpected misfortune, and help in however you’re equipped. Donations of any amount can be made on Toby’s YouCaring site, https://www.youcaring.com/tobyhemenway-718641, and every single donation is greatly appreciated.
