Lauren Hoffman exudes a warm energy and smile that can light up an empty room; a rare combination of bubbly and calm that draws you in. Her hair is shortly cropped after growing an inch or two since her last round of chemo. Lauren’s eyes light up as she describes her life before cancer – regular runs through the Prairie Path as she trained for marathons, her career in prosthetics/orthotics, and far-reaching plans that stretched toward the future. But at the young age of 22, her life came to a screeching halt when she received the unexpected news of a cancer diagnosis. Lauren’s life changed when she walked into an oncology office and learned she had endometrial cancer.
