"Lauren Marie LaFontaine was an amazing girl—she put her family and friends first, always caring for them before focusing on her needs, especially through her tough journey with cancer. She was full of life, love & laughter. She was, all around, one amazing little girl. About three years ago, Lauren gained her wings…We all miss her so much. She made an incredible impact on our hearts in her 14.5 years of life on earth, and we are SO thankful for that.
Although our first wish would be to have her back with us, we can’t help but wonder what her wish would be from heaven. She left us with a message before she passed away; she never wanted to be forgotten. Well, there is no way we could ever forget her, that’s for sure. She will always be such a unique, amazing spirit in our lives FOREVER. To honor her, we thought it would be nice to bring everyone together to make blankets for the children at U of M hospital; where Lauren once made visits for her cancer treatment. It is a way to bring us all together to remember Lauren, but also to give back.
$24 = 1 Blanket made for a child that may be having a rough day, week, month or year at the hospital. Along with that, a video message is put together by those who make the blanket the day of the event. When a child receives the blanket, they can go online to view their special message from us. How neat is that?
If you can attend, awesome!! We will see you at FHS, on November 11th from 10am-12pm! If you cannot attend, but would still like to donate, your $24 donation will go towards a blanket that Lauren’s friends/ family/ classmates can help to put together the day of the event.
We are looking forward to bringing everyone together, honoring Lauren, and giving back. Thank you in advance!
-Love for Lauren-"
