Lauren created Purple Wings after suffering with Crohns herself for 5 years. The charity offers 'Time for me grants' to those who have had ostomy surgery due to IBD. I myself received one from Lauren and wanted to thank her on behalf of all her 'butterflies' by nominating her for this award. Lauren taught me to 'Adapt, recover and overcome'. — Shelley
