Wolves Wishes: Lauren's Mascot Surprise

Special treat for brave supporter

Among the mascots for Saturday’s game against Blackpool at Molineux was 12-year-old Lauren Uncles, from Barton-under-Needwood.

And Lauren’s big day at Molineux was thanks to the efforts of Mom Teresa, in nominating her for one of the Wolves Wishes.


Lauren is suffering from a brain tumour and is now to undergo vital proton beam therapy in Florida, so Teresa was keen to give her a boost before departing for the treatment.

Lauren, who won a Children of Courage award from the Burton Mail newspaper last year, first had the tumour diagnosed when visiting hospital after having problems with her eyesight in August, 2013.

The treatment, aiming to stop the tumour causing fluid to build up on her brain, will involve daily treatment over a five week period and Lauren will have to wear a mask during part of it to protect her face and the rest of her brain.

After hearing from Teresa it was arranged that Lauren should visit the training ground and be surprised by favourite player Danny Batth with news of the mascot place for Saturday’s game against Blackpool.

Although the passing of Sir Jack Hayward changed the mascot arrangements with Danny carrying out the tribute wreath, Lauren was still able to chat to him before the game and instead walked out with Dave Edwards, who went on to grab Wolves’ crucial first goal in the game.


Check out the video below to see what happened – and all the very best to Lauren from everyone at Wolves for the forthcoming treatment.
