Lauren has had many incredible people help her during her recovery. One organization that has been a godsend is Disabled Athletes Sports Association (DASA). Lauren trains with them in the gym twice a week and has participated in golf, tennis, track and now rock climbing.
The rock climbing session started the last week of October. Tonight I watched Lauren scale the first wall all by herself. When she finished, she decided (with some not so gentle prodding by her father) her next climb would be the more difficult wall that she had been avoiding.
In true Lauren fashion, she made it to the top. She never ceases to amaze me with her willingness to try new things and to always push herself to be better.
Thank you DASA for continuing to be a driving force in Lauren’s recovery.
