Southern suburb shows support for cancer survivor

COUNTRY CLUB HILLS, Illinois — Valeria Olds, a resident of Chicago, in the southern suburbs of Chicago, was diagnosed with leukemia this summer but returned home earlier this week after a five-week stay at Northwestern Hospital.

Doctors say they are surprised by how well her body has coped with chemotherapy.

In honor of her return home, the wife and mother of four were greeted by a caravan of cars that offered their support while remaining socially distant to protect Olds’ immune system.
