    Lauren Hill - a very special young lady

    Her motto: never give up.

    I'm not sure how many of you have been following her story. She's a very courageous, inspiring woman with a wonderful sense of humor.

    My heart goes out to her family and friends.

    Lauren is an incredible brave and very special young woman. I've followed her story since last fall and had heard that she was declining. What she is doing with her short life is more than most of us will do in many life times. We can all learn a lot from her.

    Her boyfriend is a guy I used to hang around a lot in high school, we had the same group of close friends. I was completely blown away when ESPN did a feature on her and there he was on SportsCenter. I feel for him, that's gotta be rough, but externally he seems to be handling it pretty well.

    Huh, I didn't know she had a boyfriend, and I've read probably 50+ stories about her. He certainly hasn't been made much a part of the story (for better or worse). Interesting.

    I watched the videos from WCPO showing her View taping and the 20 minutes around it, and it was definitely tough to watch. She's incredibly impressive.

    I read every comment thinking this was about Lauryn Hill from Fugees fame. I was so confused.

    Sad, inspiring, scary, beautiful story.

    I am disheartened to see how she's suffering now. She looks nothing like what she did in November. She's pumped up with steroids trying to keep the pressure of the tumor off her brain. She has a hard time keeping head upright. She looks so uncomfortable. How it must be to think everytime you close your eyes you may not wake up. I can't imagine

    I can't remember a person, especially a person this young, demonstrating the amount of grace and courage she has. She is truly an inspiration.
