Balloon For Lauren Hill Found In Delmar

Hundreds of balloons were launched from the Lawrenceburg Levee Wednesday in hope to spread awareness about DIPG and Lauren Hill's legacy.
One of the balloons from that launch was found 631 miles away stuck in a tree outside of Angela Whitmore's house in Delmar, Del.

"I found a balloon at my house yesterday. It was stuck to a tree. The card said to let you know where I found it. Sorry to hear about Lauren," Whitmore said on the Launch for Lauren Facebook page.
Whitmore says in the Facebook post that she lives right on the line of Maryland and Delaware and that she is only 30 minutes away from the Atlantic Ocean.
Organizers launched the balloons on April 22 at exactly 7:22 p.m., 22 was Hill's number.  They say the launch was used as an opportunity to say thanks for her contribution to cancer research and awareness.
Hill, the Mount Saint Joseph University basketball player who helped raise more than $1 million for cancer research, passed away on April 10. She was 19 years old.

She played four collegiate-level basketball games and brought awareness to an incredibly rare form of brain cancer, DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma), all while battling the disease herself. As a senior at Lawrenceburg High School, Lauren was diagnosed with DIPG only 49 days after signing on to play at MSJ.
