Molei and her boyfriend were driving up to the mountains when a semi-truck hit them. She was the worst injured – Doctors said she was internally decapitated (an AOD). The doctors gave her a less than 1% chance of survival. Luckily, an out-of-towner was passing by and he stopped, put his own life at risk (it was a snowy night on a mountain pass) and did CPR on her for 45 minutes! Because of the AOD, she’s now relearning how to walk/stand, swallow, breathe etc. She’s relearning EVERYTHING!
Molei shares her excitement for skiing again!
“Ever since my accident I’ve been looked at as ‘the handicapped girl’. Everywhere i go i can feel eyes on me. One day, my boyfriend was pushing me in my wheelchair while we went to run errands at target, and I must’ve gotten used to being stared at and looked at like an object- that when one little boy came up and said hi it literally scared me. It took me back! I thought ‘oh yeah! People CAN see me.’ lol anyway, on the mountain i felt ‘normal’ again. Like people weren’t looking at me as ‘the handicapped girl’. I just wanted to express my gratitude for you guys! THANK YOU!!!!”
