A 12-year-old who was warned by doctors she may never walk or lead a normal life, will carry the Olympic Torch in Sussex today. Lauren Gander was born with spina bifida. But today she not only walks with out any problems, but has become a talented dancer and performer.
Lauren has also raised £78,000 for charity helping other children lead better lives. Her friends and family find her to be an inspiration. The teenager will carry the Torch in Rye this morning.
