This is the Team Wittry Fund. The funds will be used for Waylon's medical costs and related expenses. Please show your support!

Waylon was diagnosed with an astrocytoma, a type of glioma brain tumor on April 15, 2010, after having a seizure while driving. Waylon had brain surgery in June where the surgery was successful in that the doctors were able to remove 98% of the tumor. Unfortunately they had to leave a small piece of the tumor because of its high-risk location which would leave him paralyzed if they removed it. It took Waylon about 3-4 months to recover before he went back to work. Over the past two years Waylon has continuously suffered severe migraines and constant pain . He has tried every medication available to help relieve his pain with no such luck. Throughout the past two years Waylon has been monitored every 3 months through MRI scans to keep an eye on his tumor. In May 2012, Waylon received terrible news that his tumor has started to grow back. He is currently undergoing radiation in hopes to shrink the tumor since surgery is not an option again. As you can imagine, this has been very tough, not only emotionally, and physically but also financially. Waylon will not be working while going through this grueling process and we don't want them to struggle even more worrying about finances. 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. God Bless you. Much love, AnnMarie Collins, Ryan Ball, & The Collins Family We all know Waylon loves his family and friends and would love to hear from you. You can send him cards or well wishes to Waylon and Kim's House: The Wittry's 45215 County Road 32B Davis, CA 95618 If you have any questions or would like to speak to Kim about his progress you can contact her at: or 916-897-6300
