Lauren Wasser is a model, athlete, and advocate. Her modeling career came to a screeching halt in 2012 when she was diagnosed with Toxic Shock Syndrome, a rare and often fatal condition often linked to tampon usage. Because of TSS, Wasser suffered from complications which resulted in having both of her legs amputated just below the knee.

Wasser overcame her health challenges and eventually returned to modeling with a new purpose as she continues to break boundaries in the fashion industry. Today, the 31-year-old model is represented by LA Models and remains a fearless advocate to help raise awareness about TSS.
