The Leigh Sakoda Foundation celebrated Leigh’s birthday by making a very important grant to a 28 year old in Kansas who has diagnosed with Cholangio-Carcinoma, a very rare and deadly cancer of the bile duct.  She has 6 children all between the ages of 2 and 15, and they have to travel to the MD Anderson cancer center in Texas for treatment.  She has not been able to work during this time and has had to go on medical leave.  Her disability benefits don’t allow her family to meet their monthly living and medical expenses.  Her husband recently lost his job as well, and this gift will allow their family to meet monthly mortgage and utility bills.
