The Leigh Sakoda Foundation celebrated New Year’s Eve by making a very important grant to a 32 year old woman in Pennsylvania who fights metastatic cervical cancer and undergoes weekly chemotherapy and radiation. She is the mother of three daughters, aged 11, 6, and 4 with very limited financial support. She has had to quit her job due to the intensity of the treatments and has no accrued vacation of sick days. 5-year survivorship for this type of cancer is less than 20%, and her children require additional support through her treatment period. She is being treated at the University of Pennsylvania.
