In the midst of the 1980s farm crisis, Ron “Gus” Gustafson lost his arm in a farming accident at age 9 on his family farm in Lyons.

“He decided to make the best of the situation and is a national speaker that shares his story, his journey, his struggles and his unconditional love and support from his family while growing up and working with his family on the farm and serving in the ag industry,” said Shawn Shanahan, executive director of development and community health for the Fremont Health Foundation.

Gustafson will speak at an agriculture health and safety event held between Methodist Fremont Health and Platte Valley Equipment on Friday. The event includes free blood draws to test things such as blood sugar and white blood cell and red blood cell levels.
