• "I want to thank you for the wonderful Cancer Sack of Luv! It was very nice. I will enjoy it for a long time to come. Thank you very much,
    Love - Virginia C.
    I first met Leanna while her brother was being treated for cancer at our clinic. We were talking about the financial difficulties some patients have during their treatment. Many patients have no insurance or no income due to inability to work because of cancer treatment side effects. Leanna was quite upset about this. One patient of mine in particular really had some challenges and our department adopted her for the holidays. Leanna wanted to help and she made a donation as well.

    A few days later, she was asking me for a list of things most patients needed during treatment. I asked the different departments in our clinic and compiled a list. The next thing I knew, Leanna had prepared dozens of what she called lovingly called LuvSacks! She had so many sacks she was able to donate to all 3 of our cancer clinics in Newport News, Gloucester and Williamsburg. They were filled with all kinds of toiletries, nail polish for the women, Carnation Instant Breakfast mix, hats, gloves and scarves and numerous other things. She had enlisted help of her coworkers who made donations of supplies and money to purchase them. My patient with the challenges, she was the first recipient of a LuvSack and she was thrilled. And all the recipients after her have been so grateful and ever so thankful for their LuvSacks. Thanks to Leanna and her LuvSacks for Cancer, she has truly made a difference in many people’s lives.

    Thanks Leanna!!! ~ Kelly H.
    Leanna, Thank you so much for the Luv Sack for my daughter's friend. It is such a generous and lovely gift for those sick and in need. You and your friends serve a wonderful cause and we appreciate your support. I will be taking some items to Pat to help you in this endeavor.

    Again, many thanks! ~ Pat H.
    Thank you Leanna & Shirley for the Rx goodie basket and the Luv Sacks Bag. Your friendship and support means a lot to me and my family during this journey. I am now on my 3rd week of radiation and chemotherapy, and I am still getting physical therapy for my shoulders. I am determined to win this race! I thank God for the support, love, and prayers from my family and friends, again THANK YOU!
