Leah died on December 4, 2011 after an 11-year battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. While going through medical treatment for cancer, Leah discovered the healing benefits of supplementing her treatments with meditation, Reiki massage, yoga and tai chi. These soothing, non-medical techniques improved her psychological and physical health becoming a staple throughout her cancer treatment. Recognizing how these techniques improved her health, Leah worked with Kathleen Hardy, Karmanos Oncology Social Worker and Counselor, to develop the Healing Arts Program making these practices available for all Karmanos patients.
