In the spring of 2001, thirty-three-year-old Lauren Millin is living a charmed life. She is married to her college sweetheart and has a wonderful son named Joshua. But after an abnormally painful pregnancy with her second child that ends with an emergency C-section, she is diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer that has metastasized—and her prognosis is bleak. Baby Matthew, although premature, is miraculously healthy.
Lauren’s mother, Malvina Feinswog, and the rest of her family fight desperately to find a cure as their beloved Lauren struggles in the disease’s mighty grip. Despite her stage IV diagnosis, Lauren courageously battles for her life, cherishing every precious moment with a strength that inspires those around her. Uplifted by the love and support of her family and friends, she lives until the end of the year.
In an effort to cope with her overwhelming grief and find healing and peace, Feinswog chronicles the last months of her daughter’s life in Lauren’s Light. By sharing her own special moments, tender memories, and deep feelings of love, pain, and faith, Feinswog hopes to bring solace, understanding, and comfort to other families suffering with loss.
