Leanne has been fighting cervical cancer since last April. Originally it was diagnosed as stage 2b. With further scans and test it was found the cancer had taken a turn and grown larger than expected. While still in the curative stage she went through months of treatments. Missing a ton of work she was forced to almost deplete her savings account. When treatment was finally completed there was a sigh of relief but only for a moment. The final scan now showed that it had escaped the treated area and more treatments are ahead. Leanne has opted to take part in a clinical trial at Beth Israel in hopes that it works. This also comes with side effects but they are not as bad a traditional chemotherapy. She is also battling with the loss of her health insurance from her job due to all the missed time over the summer.
