Her calendar paused, her career path changed, and her platform increased after a night of injury

She subconsciously defined at the time as a“ depletion of beauty”. She was sucked into a plane propeller; the blade cut into her brain and the left side of her body, resulting in the loss of her left eye and left hand. The support she received from the city of Dallas and throughout the nation filled her with humbled gratefulness. Lauren began to realize that brokenness can be beautiful, even amidst unexpected suffering and pain.

After her accident, Lauren was in the rare situation of her insurance covering the entire cost of her cosmetic prosthesis, designed by Advanced Arm Dynamics and ARTech Laboratory. She thought this was typical until she hosted the “Beautifully Flawed Retreat” with Bethany Hamilton in 2013.

The Lauren Scruggs Kennedy Foundation was formed

It was there that she met other young women who also had tragic stories of injury, but different stories of obtaining prosthetic limbs that helped in their healing and feeling of wholeness. Many of these women either disliked their unnatural looking prosthesis, could not get one because of the high cost, or were unaware of where to go to receive a beautiful, customized silicone covering for their prosthesis.

Lauren began to pray and ask the Lord how she could help those who desired to have a natural looking prosthesis, but could not afford the full cost, and at the same time building relationships and sharing the message of true beauty found only in Christ. Two years later, her vision for a faith based foundation became reality as The Lauren Scruggs Kennedy Foundation was formed. In 2015, Lauren, Lisa and Ashley were able to accomplish their vision for helping others obtain a “beautiful” prosthesis.

Prosthesis details

Passive transradial prosthesis with locking pin suspension and a custom sculpted and painted silicone restoration arm and hand that mirrors her right side.

All ARTech silicone coverings are custom fabricated from a special blend of silicone polymers which offers flexibility, patient comfort, durability, and stain resistance. Silicone is resistant to high and low temperatures, the effects of the sun, and is one of the few materials which is well tolerated by the human body and, therefore, rarely incites dermatological reactions. Silicone is readily repaired if damaged.

A special mixture of pigments is extrensically blended to give all ARTech prosthetic restorations a translucent skin-like appearance which is colorfast. When necessary, the material is reinforced in areas where the margins are thin.

Activity-specific prostheses with multiple sports-related attachments, including a custom silicone socket with an adjustable BOA compression system. “I love my workout prosthesis, and I don’t know what I’d do without it. I work out four or five times a week, some with a trainer, some at the gym.”
