Today’s miracle story is about a young girl named Lauren Ballard. Lauren is 11 years old and in 6th grade at Bettendorf Middle School. Some of you might remember her from last year’s Dance Marathon. At age 2, Lauren was diagnosed with Wilms Tumor at the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital. She underwent 6 months of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery to remove the tumor. Shortly after that, the cancer returned filling her left lung. After completing biopsies, radiation and 9 months of chemotherapy, Lauren was cancer-free. Six months later, the cancer returned to her left lung. Lauren completed 9 more months of chemotherapy followed by 5 days of high-dose chemo and a stem cell transplant. She recovered and was able to go home after 28 days in the hospital. Lauren is now 5 years off treatment and in remission! With the help of the Children’s Miracle Network Lauren was able to be a kid again and proudly say she is in remission. Today, Lauren has enjoyed her experience with Dance Marathon so much that she wants to start her own Dance Marathon at BMS.
