Lauren Wasser made major waves this past summer after news broke that she would be suing Kotex when the Natural Balance super plus tampons caused her to get toxic shock syndrome and have her leg amputated. After the surgery, Wasser was depressed and feared that she would not be able to continue her career as a model. We're happy to see those worries were unwarranted as she's featured in Nordstrom's holiday catalogue. In the spread, Wasser is modeling Nike products which makes us feel even more inspired because their slogan is "just do it." After everything that the 28-year-old has been through, this is definitely a great way to finish the year strong—and an awesome Christmas present at that. Check out shots from the campaign in the posts below.
