It's been almost exactly a year since Ronald Poppo literally had his face eating off near the MacArthur Causeway in Downtown Miami. Since then doctors at Jackson Health System have done their best to reconstruct Poppo's face and get him back to health. Poppo has now released a video in which he plays a bit of guitar and then thanks the community for their support.
"Thanks for considering, helping out, people in my predicament need to be helped out and I'm sure there's other people also that have the same type of predicament," Poppo says in the video. "I thank the outpouring of people in the community, I will always be grateful for them."
