Update: FCERO extends a heartfelt thank you to all the generous donors.
To date, $10,000 has been raised to partially defray legal expenses. The judgment has since been rendered by the Court.
This fundraiser was to help ease the burden of our colleagues and offer them financial support.
Following the guilty verdicts, all our thoughts are with our colleagues. Another collection was held from June 17 to July 17, 2019, the support was overwhelming. This campaign was initiated in response to the significant call to action from the osteopathic community as well as the public on social media.
It consisted of osteopaths offering an osteopathic consultation to a client who paid the amount of his or her session directly on the FCERO website at fcero.org/donate. The patient received a charitable donation receipt in exchange for his or her payment.
