Tina Wise announced this on her facebook last week, and I'm signal-boosting for folks who are fans of L.A. Bank's work who want to help during this trying time.
It is with profound sadness that we have to inform you that our beloved sister and friend, Leslie Esdaile,(“L.A. Banks”) is most gravely ill. She is facing an uphill battle in her struggle with serious illness. Pleaseknow that as Leslie needs all of her energy in this fight, she is absolutely not able to receive visitors,answer emails, texts or phone calls, or receive flowers. What she is able to receive is your continuedprayers.
Also, Leslie’s medical expenses are mounting at an astronomical rate. If you wish to assist Leslie, a fundhas been established to help with these ever increasing expenses. If you wish to send donations (pleasenote that donations are not tax-deductible) to help Leslie, please see the information listed below:
