On the evening of July 11, 2018, Leia’s Kids visited the Ronald MacDonald House in Pittsburgh,PA and made a $1000 donation to Jeremiah Cline.Jeremiah is an Edison High School sophomore that is battling childhood cancer. Jeremiah is staying at the Ronald MacDonald House while recovering from a bone marrow transplant that occurred at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. Jeremiah was diagnosed with Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome (A.L.P.S.) when he was eight months old. Then, in June of 2017, he was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (A.M.L.). Shortly after that, he was diagnosed with Systematic Mastocytosis. He is the only child in the country with his diagnosis. Leia’s Kids donated to him and his family a $1,000 donation.
“Leia’s Kids is the link between the community and children battling childhood cancer. So we do two things, we raise awareness, but we also want to spread hope and be someone for these families, that are going through such a hard time, to lean on,” said Hunt.
