In April 2010, Leslie was diagnosed with estrogen positive breast cancer. She had two surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation. In February 2012, Leslie found out that her cancer had metastasized to her bones and had caused a fracture to her T-10 vertebrae. After undergoing radiation again, Leslie wore a back brace for six months until she started chemotherapy followed by surgery for the vertebrae. In September 2013, Leslie would have another surgery. Leslie tried to finish her career in Law Enforcement but had to retire eleven months early. Leslie is currently undergoing chemotherapy. When she was first diagnosed in 2010, two of her close friends shaved their heads in support. Again her two friends will shave their heads to honor Leslie and all breast cancer survivors.
We'll the head shaving ceremony was a success. Five people got their heads shaved by Leslie. I thank everyone for their donations and or participation!!!
