One of our Appearance Technicians in Phoenix, Mike Saipaia, has been dealing with diabetes for quite some time. He currently has a medical condition with one of his feet that requires him to be off of it completely for 8 weeks. Unfortunately, Mike has exhausted his sick time bank due to his diabetes. He will not be out long enough to qualify for disability payments before getting back to work. We tried to get him on light duty and the company was willing to allow it, but the doctor would not approve the light duty due to the seriousness of Mike’s condition and possibility he could lose his foot. I started a Go Fund Me Account on Mike’s behalf to try and cover Mike’s bills for 2 months. If every member gave just $5 it would be enough to raise what is needed to cover Mike and his family. I know not everyone has the ability to donate so I am going to start with a $50 donation. The link to the Go Fund Me Page is https://www.gofundme.com/mike-saipaia
Thank you to everyone in advance.
