CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

We first met Lauren Hawking - the three-year-old Charlotte fighter who was born with cerebral palsy, epilepsy and is legally blind – in February. Her mom, Anne, just sent us an update. 

Lauren had a successful decannulation (removing the tube that helped her breathe) about a month ago. Anne says it's an extremely tough transition, both mentally and physically, but Lauren is making great strides. 

"We are SO excited to normalize her life a little bit," Anne says. "We are easing her back into family life and therapies so she'll resume developmental and social progress." 

It’s a short little update, but a good one. It’s nice to read positive updates.
