Send Lauren to Houston!

Update 2/9/11: We are absolutely thrilled with the quick response! Lauren and her family are so grateful and appreciative of everyone's support. If you haven't donated, you still can, even though our original goal has been met. Again, thank you so much!

Hello friends of Lauren! We are teaming up to raise money to help with her battle against brain cancer, and we need YOUR help!

In September 2010, Lauren underwent brain surgery to remove a sizeable tumor, which was later confirmed to be a stage IV medulloblastoma brain tumor. She is now over halfway through her chemotherapy -- and kicking cancer's butt! However, now her doctors are sending her to the magical land of Houston, Texas to undergo specialized radiation treatment at MD Anderson Cancer Center for six weeks this spring. Six WHOLE weeks!

We don't know what the total expenses are going to be - but we HAD to get something started! There are tons of costs associated with this trip that even the best insurance cannot cover -- from transportation to and from Houston, to temporary housing for six weeks, co-pays, prescriptions and more.

It is important that Lauren and her family focus all of their energy on beating cancer - so we are enlisting your help to assist with these expenses. All your generous contributions are deeply appreciated- anything you can give will help! Be sure to include a message to Lauren with your donation -- we want to send her off to Houston with all the love, luck and wishes we can gather!
