Peter Gorman, one of the men largely responsible for bringing awareness of ayahuasca to the western world and the author of the truly remarkable book Ayahuasca In My Blood could use some serious help.
Peter is a noted and award-winning journalist and adventurer – also a damn good friend, father, brother, guide and simply all-around one of the good guys, and there ain’t many good guys left.
For nearly 30 years Peter has been working with Ayahuasca, and in Peru in the deep jungle — he is a living legend.
Let’s keep it that way
This recent trip the jungle sunk its teeth in really, seriously deep and Peter picked up three different staph infections – a flesh eating bacteria – that tore into him and threatened to eat his leg away below the knee.
As I write this, his leg has been saved – however, he’s not out of the woods yet.
Peter is still fighting the infection – battling against it going systemic – throughout his entire body.
Peter writes: “(It’s) …been in the muscle for six weeks. Been on drip for six weeks. In Iquitos, in the jungle, in Iquitos and here at the hospital and now here at home. I’m about to have an IV as a matter of fact. I’ve already lost a lot of muscle. I’m trying to keep it from reaching the bone and going systemic.”
