When Lauren met her singing idol Katherine Jenkins it gave her the confidence to pursue her classical singing exams.

Lauren has Ehlors-Danlos syndrome (EDS) a genetic connective tissue condition that affects 95% of the body. 

Lauren’s problems started in August 2005 after she fell and broke her foot whilst on a caravan holiday with her grandparents.  She was 11 years old at the time and since then Lauren has been in and out of hospital with various medical problems.  

Lauren has always been very musical singing in a choir when she was younger as well as being a guitar player. Her dream was to meet her idol Katherine Jenkins who inspired her to take her own classical singing exams.

Dream expereinces present opportunities for young people to achieve, grow and accomplish. Since her dream Lauren has accomplished many classical singing exams and learn't how to use her singing as a distraction from her illness.
