VALE LAUREN REID
It is with great sadness that we announce that Lauren has passed away after a short but aggressive return of the cancer she fought so bravely for the last seven years. Lauren was a great speech therapist. She really enjoyed her job and formed a close bond with many clients over the years. She formed Northern Beaches Speech Language and Reading in 2011 with Annie Grogan and helped build it into a small but dynamic group of therapists who embrace their clients the same way she embraced everything else in her life.
She loved her work, helped guide many younger therapists, mentored students, came back from trips sharing wonderful stories, and never complained once about her treatment nor mentioned any pain. She was brave and strong for as long as she could be. There is a sadness in the office at the moment that only time will erase, with many clients and families as devastated as her closest friends.
Just as she would have wanted, we will continue to offer a caring, supportive service to our many clients.
