The Lives Lauren Touched
Lauren Hill: "I want everyone to know I never give up."
Coach Benjamin and The Cure Starts Now Foundation
Coach and the players bonded instantly, and then the team followed suit. "The two biggest things we wanted to accomplish is team and team chemistry, and Lauren helped us to do that. But along the way she's made a lot of our girls become very mature, which is apparent. That's what you always want to do. You want your kids to understand what life's about," Benjamin said. "And here instead of me teaching them, it was Lauren teaching them. She's made a great impact on these young ladies. I think they're going to remember this life lesson forever and hopefully they carry it out and help her carry the mission in their own lives."
