Food will be provided as well as raffles for excellent prizes. All proceeds from the event will go to benefit the medicals costs for Ivan’s procedure.

A good friend and fellow employee has been battling a kidney disease called FSGS-- Focal Segmental Glomerolo Sclerosis (FSGS). FSGS is a rare disease that attacks the kidney’s filtering units (glomeruli) causing serious scarring which leads to permanent kidney damage and even failure. FSGS is one of the causes of a serious condition known as Nephrotic Syndrome. About 2 weeks ago, Ivan had to stop working and start dialysis to help treat the disease until a donor was available. After contacting multiple hospitals and centers to find a donor, a miracle happened.
One of our co-workers at Honda of Ft. Myers was tested and is a MATCH. That associate is Mike Guzman. He has known Ivan for a long time and was more than willing help him and give him a kidney. Both of the men will be unable to work for an extended period and we want to help them.
After the surgery, Ivan is expected to out for 3-6 months and Mike will be out for 2-3 months. The Honda of Fort Myers team is asking for your help to cover medical bills, medicine, and to help support Mike’s newborn child while he is out of work. So please, tell everyone you know and even those you don't know! Every donation counts.
