The Family and friends of Valerie are trying to raise money to help with her medical expenses due to a stroke she had September 5, 2012.

Imagine going to bed one night living the life you have dreamed of. You’re working your dream job or being the housewife and mother you have always wanted to be. This is your world. You control your decisions, your dreams and your destiny.
And for a moment your dream is over. You are awoken from sleep by a sudden dizziness and can not see because you have lost control of your vision. You try to walk and stumble through reaching for help.

This life changing event was our daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, spouse, friend and a mother. On September 5, 2012 Valerie who is 27 years old married and mother of 2 children, was rushed to the hospital to North Valley Hospital for what was thought to be a stroke. Upon arriving she was seen in the Emergency room and tests were started. It was there that it was confirmed she had a stroke. After which the staff contacted MedStar to Jet her to Spokane Sacred Heart Medical Center to undergo more test. After 3 CT scans, MRI, EKG's, Echo-cardiogram, lab work and x-ray's from both Hospitals.The Doctor said she had damage to BOTH sides of the Thalamus area of the brain. We were also told that this is rare for someone of this age to have a stroke and live through when damage is to this region. We are very fortunate to have her with us and now would ask if there are those of you that could help with the financial situation. Unfortunately Valerie and Jesse do not have medical insurance and are now in need of the help. Her bills now exceed $60,000.00. As a young couple the expectations were not to have a sudden illness with their lives ahead of them. To have a financial debt starting of this magnitude can be debilitating in many ways. We appreciate anything you can give toward a donation for the medical expenses.
Thank You
Her Husband Jesse, children Gabrielle and Garet,
Father, Mother, brother and sisters
