The Leigh Sakoda Foundation celebrated the 4th anniversary of Leigh’s passing by making a very important grant to a 24 year old woman in San Francisco who has been recently diagnosed with Glioblastoma, a very rare and malignant form of brain cancer. Before discovering the tumor, she lived a very active lifestyle but now faces daily radiation treatments and multiple chemotherapy regimens. She has had to move in with her parents, both of whom have taken time off to assist with her day to day care. The family is facing significant financial stress and the grant will be used to help with daily living expenses, monthly rent, and the medical co-pays required to fight this terrible disease.
