Please come join us for a benefit for Ruben Rangel

In October 2013, Ruben was diagnosed with End Stage Renal failure. Since his diagnosis Ruben has been on dialysis, which he started in Nov. 2013. Since his diagnosis Ruben has been working with Iowa City Hospitals & Clinics to be placed on the kidney transplant list and will undergo kidney transplant surgery.

Ruben has worked for Jacobson Companies for the past 20 years. He was also a basketball official for 11 years in the Quad City area, but due to health, is no longer able to do what he loved most. Ruben will have a long recovery ahead of him. The benefit will be to help with medical expenses.
