Roxanna Salas Update

A word from Miquel Salas.

To Our Friends in the Volleyball Community, I want to update you on
Roxanna's condition.

Overall she is feeling better, although she does have some nausea. A
transplant of a new small intestine seems far away. The Insurance
company will not even approve a "Transplant Evaluation," which has to
be done first to even get put on the "New Organ List". Therefore,
her transplant is up in the air and may take a couple of years. If
the Transplant Evaluation is affordable enough, we will try to get
the test.

(If anyone can offer advice and/or guidance on how to best deal with
the insurance company to get what Roxanna needs, I would really
appreciate it.)

Roxanna has gone to several tournaments this summer to watch. She
also gone to the beach twice and would like to go again as soon as we
get the chance.

She has had many tests done to see in the cancer is coming back. So
far, the results are negative and we pray it will stay that way. She
has been in remission for a year and two months now.

Roxanna wants to thank everyone who has prayed for and thought about

I also want to thank everyone for your support, financially,
emotionally, and spiritually.

Please pass this along to others that may be interested.
