Hannah Johns, daughter of Tyler and Jamie Johns of Huntingdon, was born in October 2020 with a heart condition that required immediate surgery. Total anomalous pulmonary venous return (TAPVR) is a congenital birth defect of the heart that prevents oxygen-rich blood from returning to the left side of the heart from the lungs. Hannah had surgery in Pittsburgh shortly after birth and will require follow-up medical care for her heart and for cat eye syndrome, a chromosomal disorder. Hannah, a lively little girl who smiles easily, has an older brother, Matthew, age 3.
River Troutman is a sophomore at Northern Bedford High School. On April 1, 2020 he was diagnosed with T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma, a rare and aggressive form of cancer that begins in the center part of the chest, between the lungs. River has had multiple stays at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. He is still on chemotherapy and has endured seizures and two brain surgeries related to bleeding and clotting common with lymphoma patients. River is the son of Dana and Kandy Troutman of Hopewell, Bedford County. He has an older brother, Brook, and a younger brother, Lake. Family and friends have been amazed at River’s resilience as he regains the strength to walk again and even get in some fishing.

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 about $180,000 since that first tournament.
