Laura Ruffino goes above and beyond when it comes to being a best friend. She and Elizabeth Diamond have been best friends for three decades. Laura is married with 2 daughters, while Elizabeth was a single mom with 4 daughters. When Elizabeth got the devastating news that she was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer in August of 2014 she worried about who would raise her 4 daughters, so she went to her best friend.

In a recent interview, Laura recalls the moment Elizabeth asked her to look after her daughters, “She said if anything ever happens to me I want you to take my girls and I instantly said ok”. 

Laura and her husband Rico are unbelievably selfless for taking this on. What an amazing best friend! They are adjusting to the new financial aspects of their bigger family and have set up a YouCaring campaign to help with costs.
