Lauren DeMarco 

CREST syndrome

Sometimes one unexpected event can lead to a series of surprises. That was the case for then 9-year-old Lauren DeMarco, who was thrilled to see snow for the first time in her hometown of Mobile. But nature’s surprise came with an unforeseen twist. “When I walked outside my hands turned bright purple,” said Lauren, now 16.
