314 days ago we launched the Fight with Leslie campaign, asking many of you to help Leslie Vogel receive a critical, but costly clinical trial treatment for her cancer. The treatments were cutting edge, but had to occur every two weeks at the Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. The funds needed to make the 1,500 mile round trip twice a month were significant. Many of you helped us raise over $17,000 to help of set the travel costs of this venture. Furthermore, many of you prayed and encouraged along the way.
Well, good news. Here is the Doctor’s report in Leslie’s own words:
“The first word I heard from the doctor today was “congratulations!” My heart leapt for joy! 100% size decrease and a complete response to therapy!!! No more treatments! Just two follow up visits and a follow up scan in September! To God be the glory great things HE HAS DONE!!! Now we pray for continued remission and enter a new season of LIFE!!!”
Thank you so much to all the friends and supporters of the Fight with Leslie campaign!
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. – Isaiah 40:29
Several weeks ago we launched the Fight With Leslie campaign to help fund the costs of Leslie Vogel’s cancer treatments at Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. To date Leslie has made over 10 visits to New York City already for treatments, biopsies and evaluations.
This week David and Leslie flew to New York for treatment AND a progress report from the doctors. The news is extraordinary and encouraging. Leslie’s tumors have already shown a 60% reduction in size and appear to continuing to shrink! The doctors are very impressed with how the treatment is working.
David and Leslie are rejoicing and praising God for answers to prayers. On behalf of them we say thank you to those who have given financially to make the travel to New York possible. The treatments are working!
Just one week ago FightWithLeslie.com was launched. Since then there have been almost 2,000 visits and 44 people have donated $8,460 to allow Leslie to travel to New York City this year for her cancer treatments! In just one week we have raised almost 85% of our goal. David and Leslie are overwhelmed with gratitude for the love and support shown to them by their family, friends and even strangers.
Thank You! Thank You!
Many are asking, “When will Leslie’s treatment start?” It has. She completed her 1st treatment yesterday at Sloan Kettering. This means she’ll be traveling very couple of weeks to NYC for a new round.
Let’s push the goal way over the top! Share FightWithLeslie.com with your family and friends if you haven’t already. Visit our donation page and give any amount because every gift helps. Feel free to be creative about how to raise money yourself. Some people are selling items they don’t use or doing a bake sale. All of these ideas are inspiring others to Fight With Leslie!
