She lost her leg due to a bacterial infection from a tampon. Now, she's creating awareness and trying to prevent TSS (toxic shock syndrome).

    TSS happened to my friend. TSS struck randomly and viciously and of her mother hadn’t found her in time, she wouldn’t be here. TSS doesn’t come from “failing to change a tampon, or a tampon getting lost” it just happens. Some of you people are just horrible and I truly hope you never have female children, for if this happened to your kid, the last thing she would need to hear is “should have changed your tampon on time.”

    Wow this is some scary crap... almost as scary as reading the tampon warning label and just shoving it up there thinking "well hope this doesn't kill me this time" I'm sure nothing other than free bleeding in a hut w a bunch of other hormonal women making quilts is probably the healthiest option. I know ppl swear by the cups and others washable pads... But I've also heard horror stories about them as well. How do we stay alive????? I can't even process this!!!!

    Tampons are made with GMO cotton. Think about that for a minute.
