Team Lauren to walk for a cure in Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's annual Light The Night Walk

- Lauren Bergstein, a pediatric occupational therapist, was recently diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia.

Her diagnosis came as a surprise. She had no family history of cancer and only went to the doctors after a lingering cold just wouldn’t go away.

She was diagnosed over the summer and spent a month in the hospital where she received support from friends, family and coworkers.

'Team Lauren' was started in support of Lauren by friends and coworkers. They have raised nearly $6000 and are pushing for more.

"I am not my cancer," Lauren said.
