The Leigh Sakoda foundation celebrated the holidays by making a very important grant to a 22 year old woman who was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, a very rare cancer of the bone tissue. She was enrolled in college on a scholarship as a softball player, and sadly her dreams were put on hold while she battled her cancer. Unfortunately, she has not been able to return to playing softball, nor has she been able to return to school. She has undergone intensive chemotherapy and a stem-cell transplant to attempt to treat her disease. She commutes a very long distance to San Francisco for regular treatments, which alone have taken a substantial financial toll.
