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

Lauren is the amazing founder of Purple Wings and the founder of the amazing Facebook group Ostomy and IBD. She has gone above and beyond to give people the confidence to accept there ileostomy and be proud of who they are and they are not just somebody with a bag.

Because Lauren will go out of her way for another. She is so kind caring and supportive. Nothing is too much trouble.  — Matthew
