To the Lakeside/Guadalajara Biker Community, we have a biker down and she needs your help.
Los Güeros First Annual Pay It Forward Event
As our VP Dave likes to say, Bikers need a cause. Your executive committee has decided we’re going to hold a fund raising event annually. The theme/name of the event is Pay It Forward. There comes a time in all of our lives where we need help. Pay It Forward helps to put a little something away in the Karma bank.
Deb the secretary and treasurer of the Los Güeros motorcycle club has been told that she will have to lose her lower leg by amputation. Deb is suffering from scleroderma, or systemic sclerosis, is a chronic connective tissue disease generally classified as one of the autoimmune rheumatic diseases. Her medical bills up to this time trying to keep her leg has left their finances to low to be able to have this procedure done. Mike and Deb need our help.
