Leigh was diagnosed in 2011 at age 38. She is married with two young children. Leigh discovered her own lump by chance; while she thought it was nothing, she went to the doctor and was shocked to find out she had cancer. She underwent a lumpectomy, 4 rounds of chemotherapy and 33 rounds of radiation. She credits her sense of humor with helping her get through the worst of her treatments.
Leigh chose to be part of the RCA in order to raise money and awareness while having fun. She is thankful that, while it can be emotionally difficult, she is able to help other women on their journey through breast cancer.
