The Best Gift of All: A Cancer-Free Diagnosis

“When I got my diagnosis, heard HER2 POSITIVE, stage 3… I thought it was death sentence.”

Meet Lauren, wife and mother of three young children, who had more life to give than a stage 3 aggressive breast cancer diagnosis at the age of 31 could take from her. Through the tremendous care she received at Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health, and the faith and support of her family and friends, Lauren beat cancer and has a lot of life left to live. “But thankfully, because of cancer research, the pioneers that went before me, and the advances in medicine, I had hope. I could survive.”

Watch Lauren’s story of hope and survival, and how her surgical oncologist gave her the best birthday present ever: a cancer free scan and the promise of more birthdays to come.
