CCN’s September 18th Hero is Lauren!
Lauren is 19 years old and a huge Taylor Swift fan and would love to meet her someday. Lauren was diagnosed with ALL her senior year of high school. Her treatments pulled her out of school which changed her life drastically because she couldn’t be around her friends. Her cancer has really shaped her and given her a new perspective on life helping her to see what is really important. She graduated with her class and is now taking college classes. She is still going through treatments and is on maintenance chemotherapy. Someday she would like to backpack around Europe like her mom did when she was younger. She also has skydiving on her bucket list because she isn’t afraid of anything. Her advice to other cancer survivors is to stay positive – others have it worse than you do.
