The Leigh Sakoda Foundation celebrated Father’s Day by making a very important grant to a 19 year old woman who has a very rare Neuroblastoma (cancer on the outside of the skull). This cancer in young adults is very aggressive with poor prognosis, and requires a very intense chemotherapy regimen. She had to transfer to a specialty hospital for treatment that was not covered by her insurance. She is a single mother and has taken significant time off from work, and the medical bills have significantly depleted her savings, as well as the financial resources of her mother who has also have to take time off from work to take care of her daughter. This grant will help with medical bills and transportation expenses.
