Stamford Hospital Foundation


I am proud to support
The Lauren Fund

The Lauren Fund was created in memory of Lauren Leslie who was diagnosed in 1992 at 15 years old, with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare form of cancer typically diagnosed in adolescents and young adults.

Up until her diagnosis Lauren led the life of an ordinary teenager spending time with her high school friends, dreaming of college and someday pursuing a Fine Arts degree. She was also an accomplished equestrian athlete, competing at the highest levels of the sport.

While she tried to live a “normal” teenage life during her cancer treatment, Lauren was only able to express her feelings through her poetry and the paintings she created while participating in the Expression through Art Program at the Bennett Cancer Center.

After a heroic two-year battle, Lauren passed away on July 3, 1994. To help sustain the Expression through Art Program, her parents, Charles and Nancy Leslie, created The Lauren Fund in her honor. The Expression through Art program, as well as the other programs that have been implemented over the years, are all available to patients of the Bennett Cancer Center free of charge because of the generous support received from people like you.
