On Wednesday, August 16, 2017 the unimaginable became a reality for Christa & Mike Doran when their six year old daughter Lea was diagnosed with DIPG, a highly aggressive brain tumor for which there currently is no cure. Approximately 300 children are diagnosed with DIPGs each year, usually between the ages of 5 and 9. Lea received 30 treatments of radiation at YALE and is currently enrolled in a clinical trial at Dana Farber in Boston, MA where she has received five treatments so far. Lea is a joyful and creative girl and continues to bless us with her life even though she has endured and continues to endure so much.
All of the revenue from Saskia's Rusty Hinges to be held on Feb. 22, 10:30-11:50am, plus all additional gift donations that may result from the class will be donated to benefit Lea.
