Leanna’s Story

For more than 40 years, Leanna and Jim Randall have been a team.

Grateful for Empathy

Leanna and her husband even shared their career as long-haul truckers, driving day and night together. But when Leanna was diagnosed with breast cancer, the inseparable couple faced the biggest challenge of their lives.

As Leanna underwent two surgeries and radiation treatment, her husband had to be on the road. Driving alone kept him away for longer time periods, while their income shrunk to less than half of their team potential. The stress of mounting bills and time apart was almost more than they could bear.

Leanna is not one to ask for help. But Sandy, a social worker at Asante’s Spears Cancer Center, sensed her distress. Finally, Leanna confided: they didn’t have the money to pay their mortgage. Sandy was able to connect Leanna with the Asante Cancer Compassion Fund, which provided the payment. Today, Leanna is cancer-free and deeply grateful.
