Sometimes you know the road you’re going to take, and other times you find yourself on a new course.
In 2005, we were eagerly awaiting the arrival of our son and looking forward to being first time parents. Danny was a true motorcycle enthusiast and the founder/owner of Southland Choppers, which was beginning to be successful. Danny often chose two wheels over four--as he did on August 16, 2005, the day our lives took a dramatically different course. A seemingly normal day, Danny was driving down the highway on a customer's motorcycle when he was struck by a van and run over. I was 33 weeks pregnant. His injuries were extensive, including a traumatic brain injury. While his broken bones have healed quickly, Danny’s internal recovery--and our family’s journey--continue as we work to turn tragedy into triumph.
