Randy's Hip Surgery

Donation protected
To know Randy is to love Randy (and his sass)!

Randy is not only our chef, but a consistent source of laughter and support in the Kappa Delta house. Whether it's a busy lunch day or a 9 am omelet for the in-house girls, you know Randy will always be there to listen and laugh with you. For the past couple of years, Randy's mobility has worsened and his hip pain has become chronic. Before his hip problems, he was an avid biker and would spend days off playing golf. He has been long awaiting hip surgery to get him back to his active lifestyle.

However, the average national cost for hip replacement surgery is $39,000. While insurance should cover the majority of this, there are numerous co-pays and deductibles. No matter the health insurance, anyone getting hip surgery will be required to pay a portion of this out of pocket. Following the surgery, there will be intensive physical therapy, doctor's visits and check-ups that will have their own associated cost. The estimated recovery will be between 6 weeks and 3 months. Throughout this time, Randy will not be able to work as he will be unable to walk.

On a typical day, Randy wakes up at 5:30 am, comes to work at the house, makes lunch for all 200 of us and after work at KD, goes to Kipos where he works as a chef. As you can tell, these days are incredibly long, and it would be impossible to keep up this schedule during recovery.

Randy has his hip surgery scheduled for May 16th, and we want to help him recover quickly and get back to his best self as soon as possible. Any donation can help alleviate his financial concerns regarding the surgery and allow him to truly focus on getting better. If you have any ideas or suggestions for other ways we can support him throughout this process, please let us know. Thank you so much for any support.

We love you Randy!!!
