Lauren was injured 3 weeks after her 19th birthday in an ironic diving accident.

Having been a competitive swimmer since age six, she instinctively performed a racing type of dive; straight out & streamlined. Unfortunately, Lauren struck what we believe was the opposite side of the pool and fractured not one, but three cervical vertebrae. The middle one exploded into a burst fracture and further damaged her spinal column.
