Todd got bit by a snake! Let's help

Our dear buddy Forge was bitten by a copperhead snake at his home the evening of July 18th. He required immediate medical attention in Nashville, with a harrowing ambulance ride and rush to get the anti-venom to the hospital. While in the ICU dealing with intense swelling, pain, and immobility, and on IV antibiotics to deal with a possible infection related to the bite, his heart went into a-fibrillation. On July 22nd Forge had a successful procedure to his shock his heart back to a normal rhythm. Thankfully, he was released from the ICU the next day, and after 4 more (crappy) days in the hospital, he finally returned home on July 26th.
Right now, Forge needs our help. He finds himself on crutches, unable to work in the short term, and with some special challenges that come with living in rural Tennessee. I know Forge has helped each and every one of you sometime in the past – he is such a kind, caring individual, and works so hard for his friends, family, and community, rarely asking for anything in return. That is just how he is! Now is the time to send back some of that love he has sent into the world and to you. Please donate to this campaign to support Forge while he recovers from this scary experience.
We are raising money for Forge’s short-term needs, including medical costs, food, utilities, and incidentals. Please show him how much you care and give back to Forge in his time of need!
Xoxo,
Mario and Michael
