This next story came to my attention because it was featured on Home and Family. Unlike most stories, I am usually aware of the person being interviewed and their disability related experience; this time I was not. It highlighted Lauren Scruggs (now Lauren Scruggs - Kennedy) and the four-year anniversary of the propeller accident that changed her life forever. Although she recovered after lots of rehab, the accident left her with both physical and emotional scores- including the loss of her left arm and eye. These days Lauren is looking forward to the future and her new marriage; she is also using her experience to create awareness for those who are financially unable to provide real life like prosthetics for their loved ones.
