Val vs. Cancer- Assist in the Fight

In 2014, Valery was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor. Since then, she has gone through numerous surgeries, chemotherapy treatments, and radiation. At the end of 2017, the cancer was found to have spread into her lungs. Her last scans in October of 2020, showed that recent radiation to her head is helping shrink those tumors. However, she needs to start a new chemotherapy regimen for her lungs, as those spots continue to multiply and grow. She continues to work as a hairstylist in a local salon, but will most likely have to reduce hours as the chemotherapy treatment continues.

Donations raised will be used to assist Val with travel to/from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota (over 6 hour drive), medical costs, and other living expenses as she continues this courageous battle. 

Valery is a selfless, compassionate, mother of two (Rease 16, Shaya 12) who deserves to continue this battle without extra financial burden and stress. Any assistance and continued prayers is greatly appreciated.
