This is the Lauren Christian Dwyer Twin Brain Tumor Fund . The funds will be used for medical expenses not covered by insurance.

Hello, my name is Elizabeth. My closest friend, Lauren Christian Dwyer, was diagnosed with two Oligoastrocytomas in September of 2011. The week before her wedding, she had a seizure throwing her life into a whirlwind of chaos and changing it forever. Her wedding was canceled to everyone but family, she was told she couldn't drive for 6 months, and to make matters worse, she was diagnosed with not only one but two brain tumors.

A biopsy was done to determine what type of tumors these were. The biopsy came back stating that the first tumor was grade 2, which is benign. Unfortunately, upon removal of the first tumor, it was found that there were portions of it that were actually grade 3, which is malignant. Another surgery just took place to remove the second tumor. More than likely, chemotherapy and radiation will be needed.

I want to help Lauren but I cannot do it alone. I created this donation page so everyone would have a chance to help.

Show Lauren your love by sending her a ‘hug’ or by donating to her fund.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.
