Kristin Toussaint - January 2017
Though her cancer diagnosis was unexpected and difficult, things also moved fast for Lauren Flaherty. From diagnosis to surgery in 31 days. While in recovery, Flaherty cites the mental struggle was at times the hardest part. As a singer, her thyroid cancer diagnosis was a shock to the system, as she was unclear if she would be able to sing again.
Thanks to the experienced staff at Massachusetts General Hospital, including doctors, surgeons, and her former teachers and voice coaches from the New England Conservatory, Flaherty can sing again. She's now working on an album to be funded through Indiegogo as a way to give back to the community and chronicle her own experience. Donations will go to the recording of the album and any leftover will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
