Lauren was a typical, 14-year-old teenager who loved acting, singing and dancing. But in April 2003, doctors had heartbreaking news. Lauren had a brain tumor about the size of a golf ball. Many of Lauren's friends turned away while she was suffering through chemotherapy and radiation. But Annie, Rosie and Kathleen stood by Lauren through it all.
"When we got the call from Lauren and found out that her wish was for me to come and redo her room, it was really touching and I'm very grateful," Nate says.
After months of excruciating treatments, Lauren was ready for some good news! Nate's boarded Oprah's Wildest Dreams Bus to surprise Lauren and make her dream come true!
