The Story

(IF YOU WOULD LIKE, YOU MAY MAKE A DONATION DIRECTLY TO LEANNA TO SAVE PROCESSING FEES DEDUCTED FROM THE WEBSITE DONATION.  EMAIL [email protected] TO FIND OUT HOW.  GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS!)
Leanna Ramirez was diagnosed on 3/15/17 with an ependymoma, a rare brain tumor that typically only affects young children. Leanna had surgery on 3/20/17 and on 3/30/17. Since the tumor was deemed cancer, she will undergo 4 months of chemotherpy, followed by 6 weeks on radiation, followed by 3 more months of chemo. Leanna was born on September 1st in '01, she is a sweet, bubbly girl who likes to spend time with friends listen to country music, watch movies and play sports. As a child she attended Emerson elementary school in Westerville. Leanna was a student at Weaver middle school and is now in 9th grade at Davidson in Hilliard, Ohio. Lee is fortunate to have a strong support system through school, sports and her faith and her community. She is a goalie for her Lacrosse team and enjoys choir and art. She is involved in a youth group through Xenos Christian church. She is very close with her little brother, Julian. This fundraiser is to help with the outstanding costs not covered by insurance and to ease the strain on the family as they face the long road of battling brain cancer. Since Leanna's fertility will be compromised, she has chosen to take proactive steps. The Ramirez family will need to travel out of state for the duration of Leanna's radiation therapy. A separate account in Leanna's name has been created for medical and healing expenses.

The past several days have been resting with small bursts of therapy and visitors. We are all getting used to the tube feeding and finding ways to stay positive as a family. We saw Raiders of the Lost Ark at Dave Harnacks Reel Theater today and it was awesome! Both kids brought a couple friends and Dave was a fantastic host. It's amazing and humbling to see and hear about all the bracelets and donations rolling in. Thank you to all Weaver staff who ran in honor of Leanna today and for a cure in general! The support of this community helps us stay strong for Lee and encourages our daughter to fight! That is priceless and we are grateful beyond words. Our strength is due to God's grace and the people He has put in our lives. We FEEL blessed. Leanna's chemotherapy and port placement will likely begin sometime this upcoming week. Pray for low side effects and effectiveness against any remaining tumor and for emotional strength to prepare for what is next.
