Dani was riding down Mount Palomar on her motorcycle in 2004 when a deceptive turn in the road caused her to lose control of her bike. She was thrown 20 feet into the air and 45 feet down the mountain-side. Dani fractured her neck (non-displaced at C6), broke all of her ribs and left humerus, ruptured her spleen, her lungs collapsed, and she smashed her tibia and fibula on her right leg. She was placed in a drug-induced coma for 45 days. While in a coma, she developed gangrene in her knee and Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome in her lungs. Once her leg was amputated, her body was able to focus on healing her lungs.
