Lauren Hill: 'I want everybody to know I never give up'December 18, 2014
Lauren Hill knows she will die soon. Not today or tomorrow or the day after that. The DIPG is gradual. That's good and bad. It has allowed Lauren a clarity of vision and purpose, and time to act upon each. It's also a terrible, progressive constriction of her life and its possibilities, which are no longer endless.
No one but those doing the dying knows what that's like. All of us come with an expiration date. Few of us have a timetable as accurate as Lauren's. None of us has any idea how we might react, handed her circumstances.
She's a model, though. If you believe each of us is here for a reason, you'll find no better evidence than this 19-year-old, basketball-playing young woman from Lawrenceburg.
