We are currently having some difficulties updating the hangupsavealife website. There was a facebook group set up in Lauren’s name following her car accident and I am working with Linda to update that page. So, for the time being you can follow any information through the facebook group page. Through facebook you can conduct a search by simply typing L.E.M. 89-07. Thank you.
2. If you are a member simply log in. If you are not a member you can still conduct the search but to become a member of the group I believe Facebook requires an account to be set up, which is really easy to do.
3. In the far right corner of the facebook page there is a search bar. This is where you type in: L.E.M. 89-07.
4. The results will appear and there is a beautiful picture of Lauren with her sunglasses on. Click on the picture and it will send you to the group page.
5. On the group page you can become a member by choosing to do so.

We just wanted to apologize for not being able to update the website for the last few months. It is up and running now and we will be adding stuff over the next couple of weeks, including more newspaper articles, cartoons and post the loving letters and blogs we have received. Thank you for all the support from those in our community and beyond!

The intent of Hang Up – Save a Life is to provide information and education on the dangers of distracted driving. Consider how many times you personally used or witnessed someone driving while using a cell phone, whether it be talking, looking up a number, or text messages. This seemingly innocent act has caused countless accidents and fatalities.
A distracted driver, who was using his cell phone and ran through a stop light, killed Lauren Elizabeth Mulkey on March 18, 2007. Only 17 years of age, her life ended too soon. Lauren was an accomplished scholar, athlete, and artist. Because of this tragedy, we dedicate this site to the memories of her and all other distracted driving victims.
Please join our campaign and make a personal commitment to prevent distracted driving.
