Laura was first diagnosed with cancer in early 2005 but surely the cancer was in her much longer than that, it was just too small to be felt or seen on the mammograms. Because she was adopted, we don’t know her biological history. Metastatic disease was confirmed in early 2009. But, do not let cancer be the definition of Laura!
Laura lived a most beautiful life. She was mommy to Garrett, God’s gift to Doug, loving sister to Don, beloved daughter, and warm friend to so many family and friends. She not only had a wonderful spirit, she lived it also.
