“Reason this person is a Gold Ribbon Hero: Lauren was diagnosed with ALL Leukemia on April 29, 2015. She was just 2-1/2 at the time of diagnosis. Our sweet granddaughter is our HERO and a hero to everyone she knows! Through all her treatments, some way more difficult than other, she continues to smile and show us all what true strength is! She is a precious little girl. She has about 2 years of treatment to go but she is kicking each phase to the curb, one by one!!!” – Laura S.
