If you know Lauren you know that she is a happy, creative and beautiful daughter, sister, aunty and friend.

She has always been there for everyone around her, however she has been dealt an unfair hand. This started when she had just turned 25.

In July 2009 she was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer that had metastasised into the lymph nodes resulting in a bilateral mastectomy.

She endured 6 months of intense chemotherapy and courageously overcame multiple life threatening complications such as an emergency heart surgery to remove a faulty port-a-cath lodged in her pulmonary artery, folliculitis, septicaemia and gall bladder removal.

She celebrated reaching remission in February  2010.

Unfortunately Lauren’s battle did not end there. A new fight began in December 2018 when she was diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer which has metastasised in the liver, plural cavity, and abdominal and aortic lymph nodes (yes this does sound horrendous and it is!).

After multiple anaphylactic reactions to chemotherapy the cancer cells are now presenting resistant to chemotherapy treatment altogether, and spreading which is a devastating blow at 35.

Lauren is now not on chemotherapy treatment and has been told remission is not possible.

Here’s where you come in!

Inspired by childhood movies which sparked her imagination since she was 7 years old, Lauren has ALWAYS dreamt of standing in Times Square in New York City at Christmas. 

It it has been her life long dream to visit the magical places which have inspired her over the years. 

Armed with her doctors promises of “buying her more time”, it is our goal to get her there.

We her friends and family would like to give her the experience of a life time, however we can not do it alone. 

We have set up this fund knowing that EVERY contribution will help her live her dream. 

Please give with an open heart ❣ and we thank you from the bottom of ours ❤️
