The Erica Leafquist Fund



Erica’s parents, Eric and Kathy Leafquist, established the Erica Leafquist Fund, at Dana Farber Cancer Institute, to honor their beloved daughter and continue the fight against ALL. Despite medical advances, more children die from ALL than all other pediatric cancers combined.


The Erica Leafquist Fund will empower Dr. Lewis Silverman, and his research team, to deepen their understanding of relapsed ALL and improve ALL’s cure rate. In the face of ALL, Erica showed an unconquerable spirit. Now it is the spirit of the Erica Leafquist Fund to conquer ALL.
