Adlee is the daughter of Rob & Alissa (Adolph) Barajas of Morrison, and the granddaughter of Rob & Sue Barajas of Milledgeville, and Tim & Ellen Adolph of Chadwick. She has a younger sister, Harper. In early December 2014, a few days after her 2nd birthday, Adlee was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, or ALL.
After numerous rounds of chemo, trips to Iowa City, and hospital stays for illness, little Miss Adlee is in remission! However, she still has a long road ahead of her with maintenance chemo, spinal taps, bone marrow aspirations, frequent tests and procedures to monitor response to treatment, and potential hospital stays for illness. Funds raised will be used for medical bills, medications, and hospital stays.
We are asking you farmers out there to help the Barajas & Adolph family, donate as little or as much corn as you wish! We will bring the Truck you decide how much or if you prefer have Brian at Balk Grain deduct a portion from your settlement sheet.
If you wish to help Adlee, Please Call Jackie Imel (815) 499-7807 or Balk Trucking (815) 259-4000 to set up a pick up time, Middle to Late May.
Under the 2014 farm bill, family operations are exempted from proposed changes in actively engaged rules. Only farm businesses defined as "non-family joint ventures" or general partnerships are affected.
Think how rural communities could rejuvenate if farmland rents stayed local rather than flowing to out-of-state heirs. That's why some farmland owners want their hometowns to inherit at least part of their land.
