Grace was on her way to the beach when she was in a serious car accident that resulted in a double compound fracture in both leg bones, pelvis broken in four places, pubic bone broken in two places, a broken rib and she was hemorrhaging.

Once she was airlifted and stabilized at a nearby hospital, the real problems started. Grace got a life-threatening infection that was so severe she was transported hours away to a Level I Pediatric Trauma Center for specialized care. After many surgeries and 77 days in ICU, Grace was finally healed.

She is now at Salem College with a 4.0 GPA studying to be a nurse and help others like her.
