The Leigh Sakoda Foundation celebrated Leigh’s birthday by making a very important grant to a 32 year old in Massachusetts who was diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma (a cancer of the lymph system).  Her daughter was also diagnosed with a Neuroblastoma (a very rare brain cancer) and both were undergoing treatment at the same time.  Her daughter passed and she is not homebound and her husband has had difficulty as the primary caregiver.  She is unable to work because of weakness and they have been trying to keep their family owned business afloat.  This grant gave them the ability to make car payments and credit card bill payments so they can continue service to their much needed healthcare and utilities.
