Lauren's family and friends invite you to join them in support for her as she faces struggles living with Athetoid Cerebral Palsy.

Please "Lend A Hand To Lauren" ! She's a beautiful 16 year old teen who has suffered from Athetoid Cerebral Palsy since birth and is now also diagnosed with a degenerative Spinocerebellar disease. These neurological conditions have had a profound impact on Lauren's young life, forcing her to endure multiple surgeries and leaving her unable to walk or talk.

This year alone she has had two major surgeries and spent a total of nearly four months in the hospital. As vital organs begin to fail surgical intervention is required just so she can simply survive. Lauren's life is a daily struggle and she is often in a great deal of pain, unable to communicate the source of her discomfort to her family and her caregivers.

Lauren's needs and complicated care are far greater than what is covered by her medical insurance. Lauren's family and friends have joined together in support to help provide her with necessities such as a handicapped accessible vehicle and much needed medical and therapy equipment. Major renovations must be completed to Lauren's home to make it wheelchair accessible just so she can safely get in and out of her house to attend her many doctor and therapist appointments.

If you would like to assist Lauren with her complex care please click on "give now" and Lend A Hand To Lauren today. If you would like to make a private donation or would like to contact Lauren or her family personally you may do so by e-mail to...

We also invite you to visit Lauren's group page on Facebook. Just click on the link on this page. Thank you in advance for your support and prayers and for Lending A Hand To Lauren... because no child in the fight for life or health should have to go through it alone !!

Darlene, Darren and Lauren Minard
