The Fairview Economic Development Corporation will be sponsoring The Allen Fairview Chamber of Commerce Spring Fling Gift Market & Luncheon on Thursday, May 5, 2022, at Heritage Ranch Golf and Country Club in Fairview, Texas. The featured speaker will be Leia T. Hunt.
When Leia was two years old, she was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma, a form of eye cancer. Leia underwent 31 surgical procedures, multiple rounds of chemotherapy, and, ultimately, the insertion of a radioactive plaque in her left eye. The radiation ultimately defeated her cancer but left her blind in the left eye.
Today, Leia has turned the devastation of her childhood cancer into a testimony of hope and faith. Leia is passionate about sharing her story and has embraced the opportunity to speak at various events, including childhood cancer fundraising events, youth rallies, and events at the University of Pittsburgh.
At 21 years old, after serving two years as a missionary with Hard As Nails Ministries, Leia is working to make her dreams for Leia’s Kids come true by bringing goodness into a world of suffering.
A non-profit charity founded in 2017, whose mission is to provide hope and support to children and their families battling childhood cancer.
Many of us know local children and families that have been affected by childhood cancer. Doctors and nurses work hard to cure patients’ cancers, but families need more than medical help to get them through this difficult time. This is the point at which the Leia’s Kids Foundation intervenes. The foundation provides direct financial assistance to children and their families facing the often overwhelming childhood cancer pathway.
Leia Therese Hunt, Leia’s Kids Founder, advocates for childhood cancer awareness through her faith-filled inspirational message, not only to those battling cancer but to community groups, religious groups, corporations, and educational institutions.
