Ten years ago, Laura Miller was a 14-year-old, high school freshman in Milwaukee, when she began getting headaches.

Doctors didn’t find a cause for concern, but three weeks later, she had a seizure and was taken to the hospital, where she was given a CT scan. She was diagnosed with medulloblastoma, a rare, aggressive childhood brain tumor. Three days later, before she could receive surgery, she was declared brain dead, due to complications caused by the pressure of the tumor.
