Lauren’s documentary “The Not-Dying Girl” is nominated for two regional Emmy awards!!! The region is Hawaii, Guam, Northern and Central California, and Northern Nevada. The nomination categories are “Documentary – Topical” and “Editor – Program.” The awards ceremony will be held June 8th in San Francisco. The documentary just won “Most Inspirational Documentary” at the Sacramento International Film Festival last weekend.
Also, the film will be available for all PBS stations in the U.S. on May 30th. The stations can get it from The National Educational Television Association (netaonline.org). The documentary was originally shown on KVIE, the Sacramento, CA PBS station. The documentary is uplifting at times, heartfelt at times, difficult at times, and discusses the need for more funding for childhood cancer research.
If you have not already seen the film, please watch it. I have included the link to it on KVIE. If it touches you, request that your PBS station stream the film from netaonline.org on May 30th and show it in your market. The more stations that show it, the more people will be aware of the underfunding of childhood cancer research.
Breast Cancer Awareness has been very successful in gaining funding for research, better outcomes and raising awareness of the importance of screenings. Lauren wanted the same for Childhood Cancer Awareness. Together, we can help to continue her message. We all know to “Go pink” in October. Let’s help everyone to know we need to “Go Gold” in September!
Beautiful young woman detailing her journey through reoccurrence of cancer and a wish to make the world better for the next pediatric cancer patient. Thank you Lauren for your courage, grit, love of life and inspiring us to be better, be humble, make goals and always strive to be better.
Thank you so much for sharing this video. I truly hope that the government & drug companies wake up & honor her & her doctor’s wish to fund childhood cancers.
As a reminder, I had 2 classes with Lauren at DVC, & we often walked together between the 2. This was before the recurrence. I was so touched by her deep level of maturity. She always had a group of people around her, so positive & so popular.
After the recurrence I was glued to her blog & followed Lauren’s journey through each item on her bucket list.
I’ll never forget Lauren.
