She is keeping a blog her progress.
If you’d like to send cash in the knowledge it will go straight to the front line, here are Jim Ingram’s (Lauren’s dad) instructions:
If you would like to contribute to Lauren and Tamur's 'fund', please make a check out to Dr. Tamur Mueenuddin, mail it to me at James E. Ingram 3036 Cambridge Place, NW, Washington, DC 20007 and I will deposit it to a separate account set up at CitiBank here in the US.
