Recovery and Philanthropy

After less than a year, Scruggs made a remarkable recovery. She received a prosthetic hand and left eye. She gave an interview to the "Today" show in 2012, her first public appearance since the accident. She also wrote a book about her life and the accident called "Still Lolo: A Spinning Propeller, a Horrific Accident, and a Family's Journey of Hope" which was published in 2012. In 2015, she released her second book, "Your Beautiful Heart."

In December of 2017, Scruggs launched a nonprofit called LSK Foundation. The organization covers the cost of prosthetics for other individuals who have lost limbs. Specifically, it focuses on women who have suffered accidents and whose insurance does not have the full cost of prosthetics. After having suffered her own accident, Scruggs was happy to learn her insurance policy covered the entire cost of her prosthetics and shocked to learned that many people did not benefit from such coverage. She was not aware of this until hosting a retreat with Bethany Hamilton, who had also lost an arm in a shark attack, called Beautifully Flawed Retreat. There, she met many other women who had also suffered limb losses but were not satisfied with the artificial look of their prosthetics. Scruggs then spent the next years setting up the LSK Foundation, which has successfully helped many women obtain realistic prosthetics.

Personal Life

In May of 2014, Scruggs became engaged to television personality Jason Kennedy after they had dated for nearly two years. The couple were married in December of 2014. In April of 2022, Scruggs and her husband welcomed their son, Ryver, into the world after struggling with infertility for over five years. In April of 2023, the couple announced they were expecting a second child together. Scruggs and her family are Christian and reside in California.
