When Cuero native Nate Post learned his diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis was progressing, he made the difficult decision to quit his job and move back home. What Post, the son of mayor Sara Post Meyer and the late Robert W. Post, may not have expected was the outpour of community support. A benefit for Post’s medical expenses is planned Saturday.
Post said he began experiencing symptoms of the disease in 1998. He was diagnosed in 2001. At the time, he was living in Arkansas and attending graduate school. Until recently, Post was employed by the University of Illinois as a manger at a research beef farm in Perry, Ill. He held the job for almost 10 years.
“Until last August, for all my life I had been involved in agriculture,” Post said. “I went to college and studied agriculture. That was the perfect career for me.”
When his health began to decline, Post felt the job was getting dangerous. He returned to Cuero with his wife Jennifer, and his two sons, Robert and Greyson.
Post reached out to some high school friends on Facebook to help him plan a benefit.
