Famed author L.A. Banks is gravely ill.  She is fighting late stage adrenal cancer.  The New York Times and USA Today best-selling author whose real name is Leslie Esdaile Banks, is in a Philadelphia hospital.
Banks, who has written fiction, romance, thrillers and much more, is 51 years old.
In an email distributed over the weekend, Wise wrote, "Please know 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 continued prayers."
Wise has established a Web page at http://www.LeslieEsdaileFund.info/about.html to provide regular information on Banks and efforts to support and encourage her.
An account has been established to help Banks and her family with medical expenses.
