The Leigh Sakoda Foundation celebrated Leigh’s Mother’s 69th Birthday by making a grant to a 23 year old woman in Boston with late stage Osteosarcoma (a very rare bone cancer). She was originally diagnosed with the disease in 2005, and has fought a very long fight which has included 14 surgeries and 2 amputations (what an incredible woman!). Her cancer recently spread to her lungs and she has been given the news that she likely will live less than one year. Her father was recently laid off and her parents have significant financial need and need help paying her medical bills as well as living expenses for their family. This gift was made possible through the Family Reach Foundation and the Dana Farber Cancer Center.
