The Leigh Sakoda Foundation celebrated Father’s Day by making a very important grant to a 29 year old woman who was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, Vaginal Leiomyosarcoma, an extremely rare and aggressive cancer with an unclear treatment regimen. She has been battling the disease for 7 years, and has undergone 8 surgeries (along w/ radiation and other procedures to manage the symptoms of the disease). Because of the intensity of her disease and treatment protocol, she is on permanent disability and cannot work. This grant will help her pursue alternative treatments which insurance does not cover.
