Hi everyone, I was trying to give Leena a chance to come on the boards or Facebook thinking she might be taking a break. When a few months went by, I decided to reach out to her husband. I have been given permission to share the following message:

"Unfortunately Leena is not doing well - she went in to the hospital in February but is home now but in the final stages of her life.  . . . Her friendships on the board have become a big part of her life. . . . She found strength, courage, education and understanding through the board which she would not have found any where else and for this I am truly greatful."  

Her husband has relayed my message to her. I never got to meet Leena in person but through family pictures and emails I have found a friend. I wish her and her family peace and strenght in this, the hardest time in their lives.

    Thanks, Helen

    I certainly appreciate the update from you and the permission to publish it.  I had not seen her and was thinking about her recently as well as I go through my latest fight.  I wish her and her family the very best.
