Valerie was diagnosed with Anaplastic Astrocytoma Grade III (brain cancer) on September 21, 2011.

On September 1, 2011, Valerie was enjoying time with her family watching her nephew Nick play at the St. Joseph High School football game when she started having symptoms of a stroke. Her step-son Randy and wife Mary Kay took Valerie to the emergency room immediately. She had a seizure while in the ER which is how the doctors knew that it wasn't a stroke. After an MRI they had found a mass on her brain and her thyroid.

After being in ICU for four days her husband Mike
transferred her to Northwestern Medical Center on September 6th. After extensive testing they diagnosed Valerie with Anaplastic Astrocytoma.

Valerie has been a flight attendant with United Airlines for 26 years! She loves her job and looks forward to going back to work some day. Even though with her longevity with United Airlines, they only offer long term benefits which means she will not have any income for 9 months! That is a long time to pay mortgage payments and day to day expenses along with the additional medical costs associated with her illness.

Please help support Valerie and her family with medical and day to day expenses while she is being treated for brain cancer. Checks may be addressed to Valerie Romeo and mailed to Jackie Reich, 513 Donna Drive, St. Joe, MI 49085,

Thank you for all that you can do!
