Support The Podcast

“This Is Not What I Ordered” is currently on hold as we raise enough funds to produce Season 3.

Please consider becoming a patron of the podcast by making a monthly donation of $5 or more. Thank you for helping this important project continue!


Successfully maintaining a podcast means a significant investment of time, love, and energy. There is also a substantial financial component, including costs associated with recording equipment, editing services, music licensing, travel, etc.

Supporting the podcast on Patreon is a way to help sustain the project, feel a sense of pride in the community you’re helping to shape, rally behind your loved ones, and support others who are living with chronic illness.

Become a patron and get exclusive access to videos, behind-the-scenes updates, digital goodies (like beautiful desktop backgrounds featuring insightful guest quotes), and even more connection with Lauren as we journey through our health challenges together.
