Linda Lee Vecchio Cancer Fund
Posted 1/29/2014 3:52pm [from Jun Akiyama]

Linda Lee Vecchio, one of the highest ranking female aikido practitioners in the United States Aikido Federation (7th dan), has been practicing aikido for over 45 years. She was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1974 which went into remission after treatment, but in 2010, the cancer came back. Since then, she underwent surgery, has suffered a stroke, and now has three non-operable brain tumors. Her son has set up a fund for her medication, medical bills, and living expenses. To help by donating, please visit http://www.gofundme.com/4jri3g. I think it would be a great thing if the AikiWeb community could help out a fellow aikido practitioner and her family in need. Anything helps, folks. Thank you.
