In the summer of 2010, Lauren, her youngest child, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. It was horrible. Many hours were spent in the hospital and waiting for doctors. Part of Lauren's therapy was, and still is, hours of weekly chemotherapy. With all that time spent in not-so-happy places, Beth's need to create a positive happy environment, and pass the time for Lauren, motivated Beth to finally develop EZpaint. As the saying goes, "necessity is the mother of invention." Lauren now receives weekly chemotherapy treatment, has an excellent prognosis, and has the head position at EZpaint as Artistic Director. No drawing or colors go out without her approval! :)
