Shari O'Keefe Morris is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Hector Valdez.
This is one of my most cherished soccer players since he was 11 years old. He played Division I soccer at Cal State Bakersfield got his degree in criminal justice. His dream was to be a police officer . He was training for the BPD Academy . He collapsed and has been battling for his life since. He is suffering from kidney failure and needs to be transferred to Los Angeles for further evaluation. He's on dialysis and fighting for his life. Unfortunately, his family's careers have been put on hold and have not been able to work because he needs his family. I am reaching out to all the people in my life that may be able to donate any amount of money to help them be able to go to Los Angeles with him and give him the support that he needs. I know Bakersfield is a close soccer community, and I know I have so many people in my life that would be compassionate enough to help out his family. I have always given and fought for every cause that anyone has ever ask me to . So I am reaching out to all of you that know me and Hector and hope that you can donate any amount whether it's $1 or $1000 . Also I am asking for prayers that God will heal him and he will be able to fulfill his dream.
