Keylan was born in October with two heart conditions. At about six weeks old, he had a catheterization and he may need valve surgery in the future. He also will need surgery due to premature closing of a cranial suture in utero. He has had many challenges, including using a feeding tube, but Keylan's parents, Tyler and Alexa "Sis" Smith of Mount Union, say he was born fighting and amazes them every day.
Mount Union is home for Waylon, but he spent the first few months of his life at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh due to a severe heart defect. He had two open-heart surgeries in 2022 and was doing well until October 2023, when he began losing weight. Tests determined he has liver cancer. His parents, Andrew and Nakesha, nicknamed their little guy "Way."
A few days before Christmas 2023, three-year-old Isabelle was diagnosed with leukemia. Her parents, Jay and Kristen Canedo of McVeytown, are expecting another baby at the end of March. While preparing for the new arrival, they travel to Hershey for Bell's treatments. She completed her first 30 days of chemo in January and responded well to the treatment.
Quinton, a football player and wrestler for Northern Bedford High School, developed mobility problems and had falls initially thought to be from a hard hit in a football game. In December he was diagnosed with two cancerous spinal tumors. He is undergoing radiation treatment and will later have chemotherapy. He will need spinal fusion surgery due to the initial spinal/tumor surgery requiring the removal of vertebrae material. Quinton's mother, Jen Morrow of Hopewell, says life has certainly been "a whirlwind" since last fall.

Concern for Community
Valley Rural Electric Cooperative's employee health and wellness committee organized its first benefit golf tournament in 2012. Since that time, the golf outing has evolved into an all-hands-on-deck event that raises thousands of dollars annually for beneficiaries. Valley's corporate office and three district offices close on golf tournament day, often a Thursday in June. All employees lend a hand on the course for the culmination of an employee-driven fundraising effort for local families.
However, we could not do this without our sponsors, donors, and golfers. The generous support of a wide range of area businesses and individuals helps our beneficiaries better meet the financial challenges that all too often result from serious illnesses or accidents. Together, we have raised almost $345,000 since that first tournament.
