Kevin’s Knee Surgery

I am starting this GoFundMe for a very dear friend of mine. His name is Kevin Koob and he is one of the most kindest, companionate, loving, and stubborn person I know. I say stubborn because I know if he found out I was making this he would ask me to take it down. He’s not too big on handouts. I get the pleasure to work with this man and he is just about as hardworking as they get. He does everything and anything he can to help out, he is in upper management at a Casino (We work in the Buffet area of the Casino) it’s usually a pretty fast paced job. Lots of people in and out at a pretty frequent pace. Now most upper management simply walk around in their suits and ties and “supervise” the rest of us, not Kevin. Kevin does everything in his power to help out, from seating guest, serving our guest, and even carrying around a large tub filled with heavy dishes. The man does it all. Kevin has served in active duty in the Air Force, getting assigned to bases and doing whatever the job is, all while being ready to deploy if needed. Kevin also works with the Tipton Iowa Ambulance crew in his spare time as an on call. He does this all while dealing with Severe Osteoarthritis in his left knee. He’s already had injection therapy and a scope but surgeon says he will need a total knee replacement. He’s been limping around with a cane for about a year, he’s had leg braces, he’s done what he can to try to fix it. The issue he is now facing is paying the insurance deductible and 20% copay which comes to $2000. I want to do everything I can to help him. He deserves it all and more. He’s been so kind to so many different people and now I think it’s time to give back. Anything helps. Anything. To be able to reach this goal and see him not in the amount of pain he’s been in would be amazing. He’s worth it. ❤️
