Meet and Greet Kevin’s angel donor !
It is storybook story….

Kevin met Cathy 3 years ago and their relationship grew. Last winter, Kevin shared with Cathy that he was not feeling quite physically right. A doctor’s visit determined a genetic issue was causing Kevin life threatening organ failure. An all-out search mission got underway to find a donor. Many tested, but was only one match found. The match was made in heaven when it turned out Cathy’s daughter Lauren was living donor match. Not only was Lauren a match, but she made the lifesaving decision to be a donor for Kevin. The gift and the transplant were successful. Lauren continues to recover. Kevin is in the process of recovery and rehabilitation.

…so what are the chances ???

-Of Kevin and Cathy meeting and developing a relationship

-Of Kevin having a genetic issue that requires a transplant

-Of Cathy’s daughter Lauren being a match

-Of the match agreeing to be the angel

On June 29, Lauren donated and in an adjacent operating room, Kevin received the gift of life transplant at the University of Chicago Hospital. Kevin’s recovery and rehab is progressing.

The fundraiser will help support costs associated with the transplant and will help with the extraordinary costs outside of any insurance….travel, special diet, medications, rehab and more.

And, the fundraiser will add more donors to the pool so more lives can be saved !

The fundraiser will also support emotional need. Kevin will see via, skype and Facetime, his broad support group.

The fundraiser will also have an area set aside that will encourage attendees to sign up to be an organ donor.

The fundraiser will also have a “Go Fund Me” area that will be available for attended who wish to donate through “Support Kevin McCartin” program.

“Buy a square” for the Bears game that day.

A donor has volunteered to match the 1st $5,000 raised at the event.

Tickets are $60 at the door and include food and drinks.

Show your driver’s license at the door that you are an organ donor, receive an “I am a Donor” sticker and be entered into a special drawing.
