The funds raised will help pay for Valerie Weiland's medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance. Please show your support!

Valerie Weiland was diagnosed with appendix cancer in August of 2010. It is a rare cancer (1 in a million people) that spreads a mucous on surrounding organs. Valerie showed her strength when she came through her ten hour Heated Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC) surgery at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas with great success.
With a new strict healthy diet and strengthening exercise plan, Valerie has been able to enjoy spending time with son, Ben (8 yrs); daughter, Ava (6 yrs); and husband, Kurt of eleven years of marriage. She retired from her job as a speech therapist to recover and spend valuable time with her husband and kids. Valerie is a dear friend and everyone around her cherishes the time we have with her.
Unfortunately, Valerie got the devastating news this July that the cancer has returned. The decision to have the same HIPEC surgery was made quickly. She returns to Houston on July 30, 2012 to prepare for her surgery on August 2nd. We can't change this disease, but we can change how they fight it! Thank you all for your donations, support and most importantly prayers. We do believe in miracles and we pray for one each day.
