Leela : Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

Leela was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia at the age of 14. She immediately began treatment and she did not hesitate to cut off her long long hair and donate to others. This last year has been extremely hard, yet she always seems to keep smiling! Her optimistic attitude continually amazes us! Leela is very creative. She loves to sing and play the ukulele, and has even written her own song, she also loves to paint. These have been good outlets for her. Over the last year Leela has found so many things to be thankful for! Her hope, courage, and strength have inspired us and many other people.
It was an absolute pleasure photographing Leela, her free spirit and beautiful bright smile stand out in every shot. Please join Sweet Nectar Society in encouraging Leela and her family!
