Lauryn Criswell – Pineoblastoma

Lauryn is a sweet 5-year-old who adores her younger sister and has a smile that melts your heart. She is rarely seen without her little stuffed animal friend, Trixie, who is helping her cope with all the yucky stuff that goes along with a cancer diagnosis.

When a typical bout with strep throat didn’t get better and symptoms changed, Lauryn’s parents took her to the emergency room. While she was there she had a seizure and a CAT scan revealed a brain tumor.

Lauryn has a long road of treatments ahead. With frequent visits to the medical center and no paid time off, financial stresses have popped up quickly.
