"Being a Women of Worth empowers Leslie’s Week to expand our vacations away for Stage 4 Breast Cancer women and to grow our Education Assistance Grant Program for their children when they graduate from high school. "

About Sandra Gunn

Sandra Gunn is a breast cancer survivor. She made a commitment to change the end-of-life transition for women who are diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer in honor of her friend Leslie Twohig, who succumbed to triple negative inflammatory Breast Cancer. LESLIE’S WEEK commenced the year Leslie passed in 2011 to honor her life and memory and all women who have been told, “You have stage 4 breast cancer.” LESLIE’S WEEK donates vacation homes for one week every year to a family whose mother is diagnosed with Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer.

About Leslie's Week

LESLIE’S WEEK began with one Great Smoky Mountain vacation home in 2011 and has expanded to 23 Vacations Away from Cancer in 2016. Sandra and her volunteers coordinate family activities, meals out, spa services for the women, entertainment, gift baskets, and other amenities to make LESLIE’S WEEK a special and unique experience. The ultimate goal is to bring families together in a serene environment to join in the celebration of life and help families create memories that will outlast cancer.
