BENEFITING: STUPID CANCER
Lauren Akins was more than a beautiful young woman taken from us way too early by melanoma. She was a brilliant writer, a warm and delightful human being, and a passionate advocate for young adults with cancer. She was actively involved with Stupidcancer.com, and was always upbeat and inspiring--so much so that you forgot how ill she was and how much suffering she was enduring. Her many friends will all miss her terribly.
