3 Sister's Survival
Hello, My name is Brittni. I was born prematurely with underdeveloped intestines and a rare congenital spine disorder called Klippel-Feil Syndrome (KFS) which is a bone disorder characterized by the abnormal joining (fusion) of two or more spinal bones in the neck. I've had three surgeries since birth, lost my Mother to Stage 4 breast cancer in 2013.
Just when I thought I had survived some of my worst days, the unimaginable happened. On Sunday July 30, 2017 my two sisters and I went out to celebrate my youngest sister's 18th birthday. We decided to have lunch at a popular restaurant in Los Angeles, CA. About 15 minutes after arriving at the restaurant, we sat outside in the dining area patio. A few minutes later, a man driving under the influence ran a red light, collided with another vehicle and suddenly jumped the curb and drove into the patio area, hitting my oldest sister and I. I was struck from behind and my sister was dragged underneath the van. My sister and I were severely injured and taken to local hospitals for treatment over the past five months.
Fortunately, our youngest sister was not injured in the accident (as she was hit by a vehicle February 2016). It is definitely a MIRACLE everyone involved in the crash survived. Not a day goes by that I don't thank God for sparing our lives.
