She is receiving treatment at Liverpool's Alder Hey Children's Hospital. Parents are extremely hopeful of a cure for their daughter. Their only hope is a bone marrow transplant.

"Our focus is getting her cancer into remission with chemo so that she's ready to receive a bone marrow transplant when the time comes. She still smiles her way through every day. I and her dad are so proud of our brave girl. Her dad works in the week but rushes to be with us evenings and weekends. If the word spreads far and wide enough then hopefully, God willing, there will be a match for Lauryn and we can get back to normality."
