The last time we had lunch with Leslie she said, "Give me a big hug and a kiss. This may be the last time you will see me". She drove away that day waving as we stood in sorrow. Soon after she entered into hospice.
My name is Sandra Gunn, Founder of LESLIE'S WEEK. Leslie Twohig, is the inspiration for LESLIE’S WEEK and all women who are told, "You have Stage 4 Breast Cancer". Leslie M. Twohig passed away on April 2, 2011 after succumbing to Inflammatory Triple Negative Breast Cancer that metastasized to her bones. LESLIE’S WEEK began on April 3, 2011 in honor of her life and memory.

"Kindness is a magical spell—performed by enlightened beings—meant to enchant hearts and lift weary souls that they might fly."
