Lauren was born with some characteristics of a genetic disorder and underwent an unrevealing genetic workup at birth. It was not until she experienced several developmental delays and numerous markings on her skin (cafe au lait spots) that she was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1) at 18 months of age. The family started the Links For Lauren Golf Outing in 2013, named in honor of their remarkable daughter.

All of the proceeds from the event are donated to the University of Wisconsin-Madison Biotechnology Center to help fund cutting edge research for NF.  Since 2013, over $275,000 has been raised and donated to the NF research team!
