At Beechmont Ford, we have always done our best to invest back into the community that has been so very good to us. We believe that a business has a responsibility to do so. However, our partnership with Lauren’s Fight For Cure goes beyond community responsibility. It’s something that’s very close to our hearts as Lauren was a hero from right here in Cincinnati. We have worked with her foundation and the Kyler Strong foundation for years in efforts to promote awareness and strive for a cure to end DIPG.
“Lauren Hill, the inspiring young woman from Mount St. Joseph University in Cincinnati, OH was diagnosed with DIPG, a rare form of inoperable brain cancer, in November 2013. Throughout her diagnosis Lauren was a tireless advocate and spokesperson for The Cure Starts Now’s efforts to find the homerun cure. Lauren captured the hearts of people worldwide with her tenacity and determination to play in her first collegiate basketball game with her Mount St. Joseph University team. Since her game on November 2 she became a worldwide inspiration. Lauren used her voice for those children fighting cancer who are too young to speak for the need for funding research for the “homerun cure”.
Sadly, Lauren passed away on April 10, 2015, but she wanted it to be known that DIPG didn’t beat her, but that she beat DIPG. To date $2.3 million dollars has been raised in Lauren’s honor to help find a homerun cure.” – source: http://layup4lauren.org/
