When Laura was 11 years she was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a relatively rare form of cancer. The road ahead was not going to be pleasant for this young girl. To help in her recovery and give her some comfort, Abbey a Maltese puppy became part of her life.
Five years as a labour and delivery nurse, Laura has been cancer free for 14 years and is full of life. So is the puppy she was given to keep her company through her treatments.
With a man in her life and a love of travel, she is getting married soon and will take time to explore Europe, sharing a love of travel and exploring.
LAURA FUN FACT: Laughing, she says, "I'm a neat freak"! She is highly organized and keeps hospital supplies and staff organized in maternity ward of the hospital - the happiest part of the hospital!
