We love you, Ms. Cary!

Leslie Cary developed breast cancer over a year ago. She is a mother of two daughters, a loving wife, and a miraculous teacher. She is a role model to all of her students. Sadly, she developed stage four breast cancer recently. The initial costs of her treatment were extensive, and her family has had to cut back on their expenses. We would love to raise as much money as possible in the next few months. These funds will help her and her family to take care of treatments and expenses. Her family, dog, and students would all appreciate a donation. ~ Jasmine & Nico, current students

Leslie means the world to her family, friends, and ESPECIALLY her students. As I'm typing this, a student to my left is writing a poem: he calls her "a strong pillar holding us all up...angelic like the scorching sun". I have never met a teacher more deserving of kindness, or more gracious about the kindess she receives. As her LC aide, I am consistently awed by her strength and positivity. Please consider contributing to this fund...every bit helps!! ~ Caitlin Wire, 7LC Aide

It's amazing and overwhelming how much support Leslie has from her community of friends, family and loved ones. Her students and I never thought we'd get so many generous donations, although if you think about how incredible she is, it totally makes sense--thank you all SO much!

We are reaching out to all of you again due to a new development in Leslie's journey to beat breast cancer. After experiencing two seizures last weekend, Leslie was admitted to John Muir where they discovered a tumor on her brain. She went into surgery yesterday and is doing wonderfully. Her husband, Sam, explained where they're at now:

“So happy to share that Leslie’s brain surgery went exceptionally well. There is believed to be no loss of motor function or speech.

As suspected, the removed brain tumor appears to be cancerous. Triple Negative Breast cancer generally progresses to the liver and lungs before finally making its way to the brain. Our current immunotherapy and cannabis oil suppression strategy continues to be effective in the body and there’s still nothing in either the lungshe’ss or liver, so it’s a little curious as to how it might have bypassed these to the brain. In any case, Leslie will undergo targeted gamma knife brain radiation, continue immunotherapy and we’ll move to a cannabis oil formulation that better targets the CB1 receptors in the brain."

If anyone in the world deserves our love and support right now, it's Leslie and her family. There will no doubt be more expenses for them to handle with this operation and new treatment. Any amount is enough to give them peace of mind and let them focus on being present for each other.

Love you so much, Leslie! You've got this.

I love Leslie and it saddens me to see such a vibrant, vital, young woman with a lovely family have to go through this kind of medical suffering. I fervently wish for a recovery for her.
