Car wash and bake sale for man in need of organ donation
HOLLAND, Mich.—A car wash and bake sale will take place at Lakeshore Transmissions this weekend, to help a Grandville man in need of a liver transplant.

John Castaneda was diagnosed with liver cancer last year.  While he awaits a transplant, Castaneda, 57, faces steep medical bills.  The average liver transplant costs approximately $575,000, and that doesn’t include a lifetime of follow-up care and daily anti-rejection medications.  Castaneda will also be forced to temporarily relocate 150 miles from home during recovery, leading to substantial expenses for food, travel and lodging.

That’s where the National Foundation for Transplants comes in.  Volunteers with the non-profit organization will hold a fundraiser from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. September 7 to help cover Castaneda’s bills.  Donations of any amount will be accepted for the car wash.  There will also be raffle tickets available for restaurant gift cards and items from local businesses.

Lakeshore Transmissions is located at 777 Columbia Ave. in Holland.  For more information about how you can help Castaneda, click here.
