As we went through treatments with our daughter, Lauren, she was not allowed to be inside of public places. This meant our “normal” daily tasks, such as going to the supermarket with her, were now not allowed.
Lauren only left the house for doctors visits for over 8 months. We couldn’t go to baseball games, the circus or even birthday parties. It felt as though some of her childhood was taken away from her with this disease.
Medically, her body couldn’t handle it and, financially, we couldn’t afford it. This is where LIVFREE was created.
Whether it be a visit to a movie theater, a sporting event or anything in between, we want families to have something to look forward to during their tough time.
Lauren is now 9 years old and in the 4th grade. Five years after finishing her treatment, she continues to inspire people with her story of strength and courage.
