Cases of Note

Fun Facts

Through multiple periods of her life Leanne has experienced the hiccups quite frequently. And by frequently she means approximately hourly. Nobody has been able to tell her the cause, and fortunately she is in somewhat of a lull right now. She also played competitive dodgeball for over a decade. It’s actually a wonder she still has full use of her fingers after all the minor sprains!
