Monday Miracle: Lauren Hill

Miracles in life often mean that you learn how to “hoop it up.”  When you live life as a normal, routine existence it delivers safety since your habits are rarely disturbed.  But, what happens when that “safety” that is grooved into your being is shaken, when NORMALCY is disrupted?Lauren Hill                                     (photo found at http://www.thecurestartsnow.org)

That question was answered by Lauren Hill on CBS Sunday Morning.  This nineteen year old is chasing her dream, living her life in spite of the terminal brain tumor.  She wants to live long enough to play her first game next Sunday at Mt. St. Joseph College where she is a freshman.  This game is sold out, 10,000 tickets were sold in one hour to support #22. “She feels like she would be a quitter” if she stops playing the basketball game that she loves.

Lauren Hill disrupts safety, she is committed to hoop it up in spite of cancer.  Her favorite charity is http://www.thecurestartsnow.org (a foundation to cure pediatric brain cancer) and she stills gets up at 5:00 in the morning to practice drills with her team.  She defies normalcy.
