A Real ‘Living’ Hero

The breakfast of champions has a new, unforgettable face. Lauren Hill has landed on the front of the Wheaties cereal box.

She suffers from an inoperable brain tumor and is a freshman at tiny NCAA Division III Mount St. Joseph University in Cincinnati. Her dying wish was to step onto a college basketball court.

She scored the first and last baskets of Sunday’s 66-55 win over Hiram College, a game that was moved up two weeks to accommodate the fast-deteriorating Hill. An MRI revealed the finding in November 2013 when Hill was a senior at Lawrenceburg High School in Greendale, Illinois.

Compare and contrast Lauren’s story to Brittany Maynard’s, who captivated the national media with her public decision to end her life.
