Peter Leahy Endowment for Pediatric Brain Tumor Research at Children's Hospital, Seattle

Peter Leahy is the son of Joe Leahy.  At 4 years old, Peter was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor.  Doctors gave him a 10% chance of survival.  In November of 1990, Peter was admitted to Children's Hospital where he underwent chemotherapy and radiation treatments.  Children's doctors then employed a sophisticated "brain mapping" technique to carefully remove the tumor saving his motor function.  At the time doctors pressed the current knowledge and saved his life.

Today, Peter Leahy, MD is a Resident Physician in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of North Carolina Hospitals.  He is currently in his second year of a Fellowship in Pediatric Genetics.  He started an Endowment which funds brain tumor research at Children's Hospital, Seattle.  Nason Ridge is proud to donate each year to his Endowment.  

Joe Leahy, owner of Nason Ridge Group, LLC, dba Nason Ridge Wine Cellars & Saunas, has been designing, manufacturing, selling and installing wine cellars and saunas since 1984.


Joe founded and was President of Apex Sporting Goods, Inc, dba Apex Saunas & Wine Cellars. He managed the growth of Apex from a company of one person in a home office to an international corporation with 23 showrooms and over 250 employees.  The economic downturn of 2009-2010 forced Apex to close and paved the way for a new business model.
