“Hello, my name is Lauren and I am 8 years old. I was diagnosed with a rare cancer called alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma when I was 4 years old. I had to have 29 days of radiation and 43 weeks of chemotherapy. These treatments and chemicals made me very sick. I got really skinny and weak. I even had to use a wheelchair because the drugs used to kill the cancer hurt my legs. I am raising funds and awareness for the Pediatric Cancer Foundation for their Cut for a Cure campaign to help find better and safer treatments. I have been to 5 funerals for children in the last 4 years. I don’t want to lose anymore friends to cancer. Join us in the fight against pediatric cancer and consider donating to our page. Together we can rise up and fund research for a cure!
