“Rachel”

The Leigh Sakoda Foundation celebrated the 2 year anniversary of Leigh’s death by making a very important grant to an 18 year old woman in New York who has osteosarcoma (a very rare bone cancer). Her father recently had a very bad accident and has not been able to return to work. As such, her family struggles to meet medical expenses, including basic necessities such as utilities and rent. She has been fighting the disease since 2010 and like similar patients with her disease, has undergone several surgeries to cope with her condition. She is being treated at the Mount Sinai Medical Center.
