The Leigh Sakoda Foundation celebrated Father’s Day by making a very important grant to a 19 year old woman who is fighting Pineoblastoma, an aggressive brain tumor that requires a very complicated treatment regimen. The patient had to transfer over 3,000 miles to a specialty hospital in California, requiring her entire family to re-locate to help tend to her care. Due to the rare location of the tumor, it is expected that the family will need to stay at least a year away from home, which will place significant stress on their employment and financial resources. This grant will help with local lodging and uncovered travel expenses for the family.
