Anything is possible when we put our minds to it and Lauren Fishman, a 16-year-old from Telford, Shropshire, in England, recently proved it by passing her GCSEs with flying colors.


What makes the story so much special is the fact that Lauren was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma, a rare type of bone cancer, back in October 2017.

Due to the lump found on her back, the teenager was forced to miss over a year of school, spending most of her time undergoing painful chemotherapy treatments.


When she went back to school, Lauren had to work twice as hard as the other students to be able to catch up on and believed that she wouldn't do well on the exams.


The teen devoted herself to school, spending hours upon hours preparing herself, but admittedly didn't' expect to get such amazing scores.


When Lauren opened the letter containing the results, she couldn't help but burst into tears of joy as she had managed to pass everything with ease.

Her parents, Andrea and David, and siblings, Jack and Ruby, couldn't have been prouder of her. It was a very emotional moment, Lauren recalled, adding that "no words can describe how I felt."



47-year-old Andrea had nothing but great things to say about her daughter and the pride she felt could be seen in her eyes. She said:

"Lauren is so brave and so courageous. We are incredibly proud of her - she has smashed it. David and I had said whatever the results, she's already a winner in our eyes."

The 16-year-old, who is currently in remission, is reportedly expected to return to Thomas Telford School in September to study A Levels in History and Politics, as well as a BTEC qualification in Business.
