Krista Leonte's Warrior Fund

Mrs. Leonte was diagnosed with non-hodgkin lymphoma over the summer and is undergoing chemotherapy. I believe it has a good prognosis for survival but it is going to be a long road. I spoke with Lynn from Union Congregation and offered to organize a “get well” gift from our class. Mrs. Leonte mentioned to Lynn that she does not want a food train because her son has allergies and her other kids are very picky.

Below are some other ideas:
Spa Day (there is an interesting cancer-specific women’s retreat center in Ocean Grove, NJ or we could send her and a guest to a local spa);

3 months of a bi-weekly chemical-free cleaning service like Cleaning for a Reason (there are local affiliates who provide the service):;

Gift bag made for cancer specific women:;

$500 grocery gift certificate to Kings or Shop Rite.

I am open to any other ideas as well!

Please donate as much as you can.  Lynn is reaching out to Mrs. Leonte's husband to determine which gift she would most appreciate.
