The Leigh Sakoda Foundation celebrated Leigh’s Birthday by making a very important grant to a 32 year old woman in Massachusetts who was diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma, a difficult cancer that affects white blood cells.  Sadly, at the same time, her young daughter has also been battling brain cancer, and both were undergoing significant medical treatment including chemotherapy and radiation.  Unfortunately her daughter was not able to find an effective treatment and she passed away within a few months of starting her therapy.  She continues to endure consistent treatment as her cancer has relapsed since initial remission and will likely endure for several years.  This grant will help pay for home and medical expenses as she is the primary caregiver of the family.
