The Story of Lauren
Volunteer, Mom & Breast Cancer Survivor
Lauren first came to CanCare as a caregiver to her younger sister who was diagnosed with cancer. Lauren says,
CanCare was instrumental in helping me discover how to walk side-by-side with my sister through her health event.
Every day is different. It is a joy to give back and I find it helps me grow, too, in the process,
Lauren continues, “Since that first call, she and I have texted and talked by phone. Recently, we met in person for the first time for coffee. We discovered that we share our faith, our love for pets, and even have a few friends in common. As an added benefit, I’ve found that through encouraging my new friend and listening to her through the tough spots, I am strengthened too! Volunteering for CanCare reminds me how far I have come on my journey back to life after cancer. It stirs up my gratitude and gives me great joy. God is good!“
