On October 3, 2012 at the age of 24, Lauren Wasser's life changed forever. As a result of a medical condition called toxic shock syndrome, Wasser was placed in a medically-induced coma. Doctors pumped her with 80 pounds of fluids to get the toxins out of her body and conducted several blood transfusions. Lauren miraculously survived but doctors were not able to save her right leg, which had to be amputated. Overnight, Lauren had lost her identity. As a professional model, she had developed an idea of what it meant to be beautiful and initially she felt that losing her legs meant that she was no longer beautiful. While this story could have ended tragically, thankfully it has taken an inspiring turn as today Lauren believes she is more beautiful than ever before -- inside and out. Leading brands around the world agree with Lauren’s assessment, and she continues to book modeling gigs now with her beautiful golden prosthetic legs. In this episode, Eva shares the mindset shifts Lauren made in order to turn her life around. Eva also reminds all Big Dreamers that what truly matters in life is not how you look, but your character, values, and how you feel about yourself. For our show notes, visit DreamBigPodcast.com/264
