Description:

Lauren Hill, the inspiring young woman from Mount St. Joseph University was diagnosed with DIPG, a rare form of inoperable brain cancer, in November 2013. In November 2014, who captured the heart of a nation with her story and she played in her first collegiate basketball game to a sold out crowd of 10,000 fans despite her diagnosis. Since her diagnosis, Lauren has become an advocate for the "homerun cure" and other children battling cancer. Lauren has used her voice for those children who are too young to speak for the need for funding research for the "homerun cure" to cancer and in 2014 she raised more than $1,400,000 The Cure Starts Now. Lauren knew the research funded will make significant strides for those children yet to be diagnosed. The Cure Starts Now Cancer Research Foundation is one of the only cancer foundations dedicated to a "homerun" cure for all cancers, starting first with one of the most deadly and difficult cancers: pediatric brain cancer. Many experts believe that the lessons we learn from fighting pediatric cancer may in fact provide us the critical first step in winning the battle against all forms of cancer, both pediatric and adult. The Cure Starts Now represents a revolutionary new strategy in cancer research; one that fights cancer not according to numbers but instead based on knowledge and research. The Cure Starts Now's mission is one that knows no boundaries and stops at no borders. It is an international effort of families, friends, businesses and even strangers, united in the desire to cure cancer, one child at a time.
