Leah – Matched with Boston College Women’s Volleyball
Matched since September 15, 2022, 13-year-old Leah lives in Watertown with her mom, Cynthia, and brother, Aiden. She is non-verbal, but you can always get a smile out of her. Leah’s BC teammates like to visit her at school and most recently, at a volleyball match, the team included her on the roster and even joined the team on the bench!
