Let's help Jim and Kari.

If you're here, you likely have heard Jim Valley's voice on F4WOnline , either as a co-host on Wrestling Observer Live, Wrestling Observer Radio, the Portland WrestleCast, or the Pacific Rim Pro Wrestling Podcast.

Even if you haven't, you should hear his story anyway.

Jim hasn't been on our airwaves for several months as he has been hospitalized in his home state of Washington. He has a rare autoimmune disease called GPA (formerly known as Wegener's) and while it has been in remission for about 6+ years, he had a flare-up that has frankly been hell for he and his wife, Kari.

Now, he's fighting for his life.

He got laryngitis in July but it manifested into pneumonia. As Kari said recently, every time he makes progress, something else gets diagnosed. He's currently in isolation with shingles and continuing to try to fight through this.

As of October 10th, he is an acute care facility that will allow him to get ventilator care, dialysis, PTO, OT, speech therapy, and all the additional services required by his current condition. It will be months before he can come home, but there's a long way before that is a possibility.

Unfortunately, this all comes at a cost as Kari recently said their insurance premiums are increasing by nearly 20%. 

It's time to help these two at a time when they need it most. 

If you have a few dollars, please consider donating to Jim and Kari today. 

Thank you for your support and keep Jim in your thoughts.
