The Leigh Sakoda Foundation celebrated Leigh’s Birthday by making a very important grant to a 37 year old woman in Texas who was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, a cancer of the immune system.  She is a single mother of 3 children, and has been working to try and provide for the household.  She has had to endure several chemotherapy cycles, and also a stem cell transplant to try and fight the disease.  Her insurance co-pays have built up over several months and have caused significant stress financially for the entire family.  She has had to quit her job and is not eligible for disability, and as such can only pay for her family’s needs through contributions from others.  This grant will help the family cover housing and car payments during her final treatment cycle.
