The Don Simakoff Fund

On March 19th our friend and former Tech employee, Don Simakoff had a heart attack while doing something that he loved, playing soccer. Fortunately, he survived being one of roughly only 9% that is so lucky . He is on the long road to recovery now with months of rehab ahead. With it being a long while before he can return to work and facing added expenses due to the rehab and loss of income, we are asking friends of Don and his wife Sylvia, daughter Elizabeth, and son Carl to pitch in to help fill the gap during this challenging period. They would be grateful for any assistance we  can provide.
