Fund set up to help family of 2-year-old with cancer
A fund has been set up to help the Case family from Silt cope with medical expenses. Niah Wesley and Lily Case are sisters. Lily will be 2 in August.
Lily has also be diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a type of cancer that starts in the sympathetic nervous system. Lily has a baseball-sized tumor growing off the nerve endings in her spine. Doctors have started chemotherapy in an effort to shrink the tumor for removal. This involves many trips to Glenwood Springs for labs, ER visits to Grand Junction, trips to Children’s Hospital in Aurora for transfusions and chemo every three weeks.
Lily’s oncology team is confident they can shrink the tumor for removal, and Lily’s prognosis is good, but they have a long road ahead of them. They are such a young family and have shown so much dignity and grace since the start of this journey.
In an effort to give the community a chance to pull together and provide financial relief, an account has been set up for the family at Wells Fargo Bank under the name TEAM LILY. Donations are greatly appreciated, tax deductible and can be made at any Wells Fargo branch.

Glenwood firefighter makes the cut
Glenwood Springs firefighter Bryan Wooten was one of 16 firefighters selected for the 2014 Colorado Firefighters Calendar.
These men and women represent one of the noblest professions, and the calendars serve as a tribute to all firefighters and the people they help every day.
Net proceeds received from the sale of calendars and special events will directly benefit the Burn Center at Children’s Hospital Colorado and burn centers across the state.
