“Laurie is the epitome of what it means to be resilience and relentless. When we asked her to be one of our National Rookie Challengers, she didn't even blink. She is so dedicated to the mission of LLS that she took on this challenge with a smile.

Laurie's personal 9-year battle with cancer has changed her life forever. She came out of that battle looking to make a real difference, a real change. We knew this drive would lead her to be a very successful NRC. She had raised money before with MWOY, LTN, and SOY, so now it was time for her to do something with her body to prove that cancer didn't take her down.

Using her large network, sharing her story, and never giving up, led her to be the Inaugural National Rookie Challenge Winner!”

– Meredyth Gonzalez, Campaign Manager
