Lauren recently found out she was pregnant with baby #2. A sweet little girl is brewing. After being sent to the ER shortly after that great news, for what she believed to be a gallstone, they found her to have a rare gastrointestinal cancer, that has already spread to her liver, lymph nodes and bones. She's 28. While she should be busy picking out names, choosing nursery colors, and enjoying the lead up to having her little girl in her arms, Lauren will be doing chemo and fighting for not only her life, but that of her daughter as well. Lauren has always been a very hard worker with a heart of gold. In the most trying time of her life she shares the tough news with her family and friends asking for prayers and positivity, and still somehow finds the ability to stay positive asking "Please don't forget to stop and smell the roses! Life is so much more then the work hustle and bill struggle. Make time to be happy and to experience love. Be grateful for the blessings you have, and the lessons you learn along the way." As the saying goes, 'Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away'. This gofundme is being started in hopes of giving Lauren the monetary ability to get out, check off her bucket list items and just LIVE fully during this fight.
