We are honored to be one of 100 global organizations chosen by Mass General Cancer Center in Boston for taking action by helping families impacted by cancer.
To provide a week vacation to a Stage 4 Breast Cancer Woman and her family. We offer them an opportunity to come together in a serene environment to commune and gather their spirits in a celebration of life. For the children, we have an Educational Assistance fund to ensure their future. It is the Mother who gives life and it is her children who sustain it after she is gone.
We work with breast cancer centers that identify families for LESLIE’S WEEK. The entire family vacations in beautiful resorts. Our goal is for each family member to Make Memories That Outlast Cancer. LESLIE'S WEEK inspects each resort to affirm it is suitable for our Families. We secure donated entertainment tickets to various venues and solicit transportation donations.
LESLIE'S WEEK partners with cancer centers who nominate Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer women and their families. Your donation is a lasting gift of memories that allows our Stage 4 Breast Cancer women and their families to spend precious time together. Our Educational Assistance fund is for the children who are left behind. It is in the name of their mother.
