At the Homecoming basketball game, the varsity boys showed their support for Berkley.

Since the day the KCC community heard the news about senior Berkley Walline and his fight against cancer we have all come together to encourage our brother in Christ.

An overwhelming amount of support has flooded the Wallines through prayer, gift cards or offering to help caravan the Walline kids.

Berkley endured his second round of chemo on Jan. 6, and though the first few weeks of treatments have been a difficult struggle, the doctors have been working to decrease Berkley’s pain.

The Wallines have asked for prayer that Berkley’s pain will stay well controlled, his appetite will increase and that his radiation, chemo and testing will continue to go well and be organized.

Berkley’s fight against cancer began on Dec. 23 he had his first round of chemo at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. After a successful first round Berkley, the Wallines found a last minute flight home and were able to celebrate Christmas as a family under one roof. A few days later Berkley was able to celebrate the New Year’s with his friends and family as well.

Thankfully, Berkley is able to receive treatment from now on in town at KU Medical Center.

Karissa Cobb, Berkley’s aunt, said that on behalf of all the Walline’s, thank you for your prayers and support- they are very much appreciated.

 Also, Shelly Horner has asked that if you bought a Team Berkley T-shirt that you take a picture of yourself  in your shirts and email them to her so she can put them on Berkley’s CaringBridge photos page.  Her email is: [email protected]

Go Team Berkley!
