Dearest Lauren, I just finished reading your book, with tears in my eyes, and I just had to write you.
I am a 66 year old retired nurse from Denver, Colorado and the first thing I want to say is thank you for praising all the nurses that cared for you throughout your journey. I know from 40 years of experience how very hard they work…You, Lauren, are my inspiration and yes, my hero. I am giving this book to all my friends to read. All of us can gain inspiration and a different perspective on life from you even if we do not have a catastrophic injury or illness.
Whenever I am depressed, or feeling sorry for myself I will think of Lauren and say, “GET OVER IT” After 66 years (and you are never too old to learn) I learned the true meaning of human determination from you.
Take care my dear Lauren. Love to you and Greg, Tyler, and Jagger.
