My Story

  Lauren Sophia Maziarz was a perfectly heathy child until May 2009.  At age 3 ½ she was diagnosed with cancer.  In May 2010 while undergoing treatment she suffered a preventable brain injury.  Paralyzed and unable to eat, walk or talk, her family made the agonizing decision to stop painful treatments.  On October 20, 2010 Lauren turned 5.  She passed away the next day.  5 years and 1 day is not enough.  Please help fund better medicines for our children.
