Little Trooper of the Month

Lauren Elliot

March 2014

Lauren who is now 14 years old has been a rock. In July 2013 Laurens mum went to hospital with a sore foot, unfortunately a blood clot had gone undiagnosed for over a year, within the space of 10 days Laurens mum had to have an above knee amputation. Following her Mums above the knee amputation last year she has taken everything in her stride and does all she can to help but balances her life completely. She copes with all her school work before going home to help her mum with all her needs, whether this is cleaning, shopping or travelling, none of which her mum can do unassisted.

Laurens dad CSgt Elliott is based in Belgium and nominated Lauren who lives with her mum in the UK. He says “I am so proud of Lauren and the recognition you have given her is amazing THANK YOU.”
