Please Support Former PR Couture Writer Lauren Scruggs

It's not every day you wake up to a People.com story and actually know the person being written about. On the first Saturday in December, Lauren lost her left hand and suffered severe facial injuries after she accidentally walked into a spinning airplane propeller. According to the major media outlets that have picked up the story, she is able to smile and eat a bit. Doctors remain concerned she might still lose her left eye, but are pleased with the healing of her facial nerves.

Lauren wrote for PR Couture for years, handling our Getting In series. She wrote her last article for us just last month in order to focus full time on her new online magazine, Lolo. To get an idea of how awesome this girl is, upon seeing her face for the first time, responded "it's not that bad."

Our thoughts are with Lauren and her family as she recovers. There is a fund set up to help with medical bills, and I know Lauren would appreciate you keeping her in your thoughts and sharing your support on her fundraising page.

    She has such an amazing story! I shared her donation page and asked for prayer on both my personal fb and my Comapany site, Jesus Couture. She is such an inspiration and will have an amazing testimony!

      Yahoo showed pictures of her walking into rehab just weeks after her accident. The first comment said “Even with her injuries, this woman STILL looks better than 90% of the world!”

      She lost a hand and an eye, but she pretty much looks exactly the same as before. So, modeling and fashion will always be available for her to participate in. That hasn’t changed much for her.

Meet Crosby Noricks

Hi. I'm Crosby, the founder of PR Couture and a fashion brand strategist. I care about supporting and celebrating fashion publicists as well as helping rad companies connect with their audiences in more meaningful ways. Recently, iMedia included me in their annual list of 25 Internet Marketing Leaders and Innovators, along with people from Starbucks, Twitter and Volkswagon, which I think is pretty neat. Like Elle Woods, I am a Gemini-vegetarian (that's about where the similarities end). Let's connect: Check out my full bio, Brand Elixer sessions or shoot me an electronic communiqué.
