Thank You from Mexico - John Spicher Update

Posted By Jennifer Handley, March 3, 2014

We received the following email from Carolyn Daley (SV Shannon) in response to posting the blog about the unfortunate accident that should never have happened to cruiser, John Spicher, on Feb 18 2014:

John's family has asked that we thank the BCA very much for what you are doing.  I'll keep in touch with Tom & Jeanne and give you timely updates as best as we can. Thanks again for all you are doing about getting John's story out.  It's all about boaters helping boaters... and this is one good cause...

Plans in the La Paz cruising community are well underway for a "Let's Bring John Home to La Paz" benefit party to be held Wed afternoon at Marina Palmira.

While the emergency part of this story is over, the need for help is still great.  The 'emergency' part was quite depleting financially. For the long run, John is looking at quite a bit of rehab, physical therapy and then getting fitted for his new foot.  If you'd like to help out, donations can be made through the following ways:

PayPal using the account SVTimepiece@gmail.com
or
For direct deposit/wire transfer; please contact Tom at bigleftturn@hotmail.com for instructions
or
If you're in La Paz, come to the benefit party on Wed March 5, 4-6 PM.
