    Cynthia Ann Crawford was one of four children born to John and Jennifer Crawford in DeKalb, Illinois. Her brother, Jeffrey, died of leukemia soon after Christmas when she was ten. Her parents later divorced when she was sixteen. She graduated first in her class from high school and went on to study chemical engineering at Northwestern University. She reportedly quit a $4 an hour job shucking corn and left college in order to take a chance on a part-time modeling job in Chicago.

    Her risk paid off. Crawford became one of the first major "supermodels" and has appeared on over 400 magazine covers. Her first job was as a spokesperson for Pepsi. She chose not to restrict her career to modelling and became the host of House of Style on MTV. She has produced her own workout videos/dvds, Cindy Crawford | Shape Your Body and The Next Challenge. She is also the author of a book, Cindy Crawford's Basic Face.

    Crawford donates both her time and energy to breast and ovarian cancer research and the Leukemia Society of American in memory of her brother. Half of the money from her calendar sales goes to organizations for leukemia research.

    She is currently married to Rande Gerber with whom she has a son, Presley Walker Gerber.
