Lauren has cerebral palsy; this is a group of brain disorders which result in spasticity and limited mobility. Lauren is completely wheelchair bound and must be fed via feeding tube. She also suffers from frequent seizures and is on a daily medication regimen.
Lauren’s mother, Anne Marie, said that Lauren had “SUCH a good time” on her Disney holiday that she was “smiling all the time!” According to Anne Marie, at home, getting Lauren “to smile just doesn’t happen. At Disney, I captured so many smiles!” With her camera constantly recording every single smirk and grin spreading across Lauren’s face, Anne Marie was delighted with her daughter’s joy: “It was amazing to see her so happy!” The parades with their outstanding lights and music truly held Lauren’s favor while the spectacular fireworks displays left her spellbound. Their trip was genuinely a “wonderful experience.”
