Her legs are amputated after using a common household product – Now she’s warning women everywhere

A California woman named Lauren Wasser is sharing her life story in order to prevent other women to go through the ordeal she has gone through all because of a common product.

Back in 2012, this model went to the hospital because she experienced flu like symptoms that wouldn’t go away. Sadly, once doctors ran tests, they determined that it wasn’t flu that caused Lauren discomfort but toxic shock syndrome caused by bacterial toxins.

It was determined that the cause which led to the infection was a tampon. If left for long hours, tampons can cause this infection which leads to a toxic shock syndrome or TTS.

Sadly, Lauren was in coma for over a week and doctors were forced to amputate her leg because of the infection upon awakening. At the time, she was only 24 years old.


Ever since this tragic event, Lauren made it her goal to raise awareness and fighting a legal battle against Kotex Natural Balance, the brand of tampons that caused her to react so severely.

In a few months, I’m inevitably going to have my other leg amputated. There’s nothing I can do about it. But what I can do is help make sure that this doesn’t happen to others,” Lauren tells The Daily Mail.

“Considering that the vagina is the most absorbent part of a woman’s body and is a gateway to many of our vital organs, it is crucial that consumers know the reality of what could happen to them,” she writes in InStyle.


Following the second amputation, Lauren posed alongside Paralympic athlete Amy Purdy, who also had her legs amputated.

Life is about to be so different, again! I’m in great spirits though and ready for my next chapter. ???‍♀️??‍♂️ // photo by my love @camraface,” she wrote in the caption.

We are cheering for Lauren who is determined to live her life to the fullest regardless of the obstacles and the pain she was forced to go through.

Wisconsin Dairy Queen Puts Up ‘Politically Incorrect’ Sign, Owner Stands By His Decision

A message left on the front window of a Dairy Queen restaurant in Kewaskum, Wisconsin, garnered attention and is currently making waves on the internet. The billboard prominently displays the restaurant’s political incorrectness and calls attention to the fact that it often employs holiday greetings like “Merry Christmas,” “Happy Easter,” and “God Bless America.” Additionally, it shows support for the

They receive complimentary sundaes, the US flag, and expressions of gratitude for their military service on Veterans Day.

In defense of the placard, restaurant owner Kevin Scheunemann stated that it was put up nearly four years ago to be transparent about his and the staff’s dedication to serving God and the nation. According to Scheunemann, he put up the sign in response to a customer’s grievance against Christian music being played in the restaurant. Since then, the sign hasn’t caused any further issues.

The sign has gained more attention recently when an Oregonian tourist posted a picture of it on Facebook and expressed concerns about the message’s alleged exclusivity. The original post attracted a lot of attention before it was taken down.

While some people support the message on the sign, others have taken offense at the person who shared the image and voiced their opinions. However, Scheunemann’s choice to put the sign is supported by local business owners, who say that customers are free to leave the restaurant if they disagree with its principles.

The people living in the little village of Kewaskum seem to read the sign as the owner’s statement of beliefs and take it at face value. According to Dairy Queen’s official statement, Scheunemann’s approach is not endorsed by the company, and the sign only conveys the proprietor’s beliefs. The company stated that all franchisees and staff members are required to treat customers with respect and decency, regardless of their religious beliefs.
