Kamerin Lauren was diagnosed with grade 3 anaplastic astrocytoma brain cancer in 2011. Kamerin, by the grace of God and wonderful physicians, is currently in remission from the tumor; however she still suffers from seizures and other cancer-related afflictions. In late 2014, Kamerin suffered a stroke which has resulted in partial left side paralysis and debilitating back problems. She fights every day to push through her struggles, smiling even when she is in so much pain. Her grace, humor, and love is known by those lucky enough to be a part of her life and even by the strangers she comes into contact with. Please consider a shirt purchase or a donation through her online fundraiser.
