The Leigh Sakoda Foundation celebrated Leigh’s birthday by making a very important grant to a 24 year old woman in Massachusetts who was recently diagnosed with Angiosarcoma (cancer in the blood vessels). This is a very rare cancer with very poor prognosis and a difficult treatment regimen. The patient recently graduated from college and was intending to get an advanced degree but has subsequently moved back in with her mother who pays for her medical and living expenses. This grant will cover basic co-pays for medical treatment and assist the family with mortgage and utility bills through this very difficult time.
