Lauren Wasser is a shining example of how suddenly a life can change.
In a recent article, Lauren, a gorgeous model and former athlete, spoke out on her terrifying experience with toxic shock syndrome. For those who don't know, toxic shock syndrome is a rare yet life threatening bacterial infection that can be caused by the synthetic materials found in tampons.
At age 24, Wasser was at the top of her game — she modeled, was a familiar face of El Lay's coveted social scene, and she led a very active lifestyle. In high school, Lauren was even offered a full scholarship to play basketball at a Division 1 school. In short, life was good.
Unfortunately, LW's fortune changed for the worse after she purchased Kotex Natural Balance tampons for her period. Tampon use, like it is for most women, was an after thought for Lauren. The blonde didn't even think about why she felt "off" until she woke up in a hospital days later and near death.
The athlete recalled:
We just hope this is true.
On Tuesday morning, a radio report claimed that Bobbi Kristina was taken off life support and was brought home to die.

Bobby Brown's sister — Leolah Brown — heard this and immediately took to Facebook that same day to set the record straight.
She confirmed that her niece is indeed off a ventilator, however, her health is NOT deteriorating, it's — on the contrary — improving.
Bobbi's aunt exclaimed:
We're blown away!
And no, we're not talking about the performance the Golden State Warriors put on to win the NBA championship!
Last night, ahead of Game 6 of the NBA Finals, we got a different kind of special treat for the National Anthem.
No, it didn't come from the likes of a traditional superstar performer like Rascal Flatts or Usher, who opened at previous games, but instead the incredible performance (below) came from a girl by the name of Marlana VanHoose.

Marlana is a different kind of star because the 19-year-old Kentucky native is not only blind but also has cerebral palsy. A few weeks after she was born, doctors did not expect her to live past one year.
Instead, Marlana stands as a shining example of fighting for survival and beating the odds! Not only that, but she's got a helluva voice too!
Ch-ch-check out her AH-Mazing performance as she sings the National Anthem (below)!

The 23-year-old flaunted toned abs in a multicolored two-piece, captioning the shot:
"Sweet sweet summertime.#WokeUpLikeThis 👙☀️"
She seems to be doing much better since beating up her ex Nathan Griffith last month — the charges against her have been dropped, and her son Jace just graduated kindergarten.
We hope Jenelle is able to stay out of trouble so she can enjoy some fun in the sun.
