Our Mission is to strengthen the cancer resources and treatments available to those in western Kansas. 

Dear Friends,

On March 16, 2007, the Leave a Legacy Foundation was created to honor the life of our dear friend Laura and to strengthen the cancer resources in southwest Kansas. Laura died at the tender age of 30 after a six year battle with brain cancer.  She walked through it all with such beauty and grace, and always with a wink and smile on her face!

In our efforts to strengthen resources to fight cancer in southwest Kansas, the Leave a Legacy Foundation has provided St. Catherine Hospital the funds necessary to purchase life-saving equipment to diagnose and treat the residents of southwest Kansas.  The Leave a Legacy Foundation has gifted St. Catherine Hospital, the only not-for-profit hospital serving the needs of southwest Kansas, more than $60,000 to help make a difference in the services available to those in our area. 

 “Laura’s Touches” are given once a month to patients taking chemo or radiation at the Cancer Center to encourage them in their fight. Touches  have included cookies from Herb’s, Chamber of Commerce Gift Certificates, fuel cards, lunch from Samy’s, Legacy Cookbooks, and mum plants,  just to name a few.  The funds to continue “Laura’s Touches” are generated through a silent auction held each year following the Legacy 10K and Spirit 5K races.

Our goal for 2012 was to raise $20,000! We are happy to say we accomplished this goal!  We used that money to provide a free cancer screening (skin, prostate, breast) evening in November and are making a donation to  the digital mammography machine for St. Catherine Hospital.  Early detection is key to treating all types of cancer.  It is our hope that by providing free screenings and assisting with the purchase of digital mammography equipment - we can help save lives in southwest Kansas.

Thank you for your support in continuing our fight against cancer in southwest Kansas!

Kindest regards,
Leave a Legacy Foundation
