RENO, NV - donation fund has been setup to help the Leglise family after their baby was diagnosed with cancer.

Andrew and Maryann Leglise thought everything was going normal going into the new year, until their ten-month-old baby was very sleepy and cranky. Once he stopped eating, the Leglise's took Noah to the hospital. That's when the Leglise family found their ten-month-old Noah had leukemia.

He immediately was flown to Oakland Children's Hospital, where he has been ever since. He has had multiple scans, and has gone under anesthesia six times in two weeks. He is just starting to lose his hair, and has facial paralysis.

Both of Noah's parents are the medical field, but are unable to work right with Noah being in Oakland. They also have a four-year-old daughter, Keara who is helping her brother fight.

Andrew Leglise's co-workers at Saint Mary's have setup a donation fund, called "Team Noah Leglise." The four pillars are hope, love, defy and cure. The fund has been set up to help the family since both Andrew and Maryann haven't been able to work. The account is set up at US Bank, and the account number is 153754994843. There are also bracelets and t-shirts for sale.
