Listen now
Description
Lauren Wasser was born into a family of models and started modelling at just 2 months old. She was a fit tom boy and had begun to make a name for herself in the modelling industry. When Lauren was 24 years old she developed Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). In this chat we speak about Lauren’s personal experience of feeling a ‘bit off’ one day. 24 hours later she was fighting for her life. The syndrome caused a life threatening situation and Lauren ended up needing to have both of her legs amputated in an effort to keep her alive. Now, 6 years since the infection, Lauren is modelling with her golden legs.  Lauren also speaks about growing up with one view of beauty, and how our perceptions of beauty have evolved. Lauren speaks about her journey of recovering from her amputations and advocates for better after care for patients who experience similar changes to their lives.  This episode has been reviewed and approved by two medical doctors registered in NSW.  You can find more information about toxic shock syndrome in the links below: https://www.vdh.virginia.gov/epidemiology/epidemiology-fact-sheets/toxic-shock-syndrome/ TOXIC SHOCK SYNDROME AND STREPTOCOCCAL TOXIC SHOCK health direct government of SA You can check out Lauren’s Instagram You can watch us on Youtube Find us on Instagram Join us on tiktok Or join the Facebook Discussion Group Tell your mum, tell your dad, tell your dog, tell your friend and share the love because WE LOVE LOVE! xx     See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
