The Shepherd’s Circle is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit foundation devoted to providing financial assistance to individuals in the food and beverage industry who are facing major medical hardships.  Funds may be used for necessary living expenses, travel expenses to doctor appointments and health care, rehabilitation, funeral expenses and relaunching back into the profession.

On Friday September 22, 2017, Seth was found on the deck suffering from seizures brought on by a diabetic coma. He had been out there for approximately eight hours, and it is unknown how long he was seizing. While he was there, Seth aspirated vomit as well. Paramedics rushed him, still unconscious, to the emergency room, where he was soon admitted into the ICU. 

He and and wife Carley have four children—the last of whom, Jack, was born just a few weeks ago. Seth has been chef de cuisine at the popular East Asheville eatery Copper Crown for the last two years; before this he worked at Zambra, Seven Sows, Rezaz, and other fine restaurants. Seth will not, however, be able to work for an undetermined time. Not only does he have a family to support, but his medical bills are growing steadily. While he has health insurance, this will not cover the 24/7 care he will require for an indefinite period upon release from the hospital.
