Meet Lauren Foster, a lovely 10 year old girl from Birmingham, England. Lauren was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma (cancer of connective tissues) just before Christmas 2011. Lauren and her family traveled from England to Jacksonville to receive cancer treatment, involving proton therapy, several chemotherapy procedures, and surgery. She's a tough girl, we can't even imagine what she is going through.
With the help of TPC Sawgrass Agronomy staff member Derek Decosty, Lauren enjoyed a beautiful afternoon touring the golf course.....she thought the clubhouse and island green were surely worth her time. Today was just one of two days over the past nine weeks that Lauren was able to get out of the hospital. Derek did a fantastic job making her day special.
You can support and follow Lauren on facebook at Lauren's Journey. Good Luck Lauren, we wish you all the best.
