The Leigh Sakoda Foundation celebrated Thanksgiving by making a very important grant to a 24 year old woman being treated for adenoid cystic carcinoma of the eye. She was told at diagnosis that she would lose her eye and much of the left side of her face due to surgical resection. She persevered and sought out other treatment options, which saved her life and her face but requires recurring medical expense and cost. She has had to defer her graduation and quit both her jobs to access her care. She is in great spirits and will continue to fight, but she will need to pay excessive medical bills for the remainder of her life.
