On May 7, 1978 a drunk driver ran down a mother and her two children. Loïse Lavallée's life was changed forever. She and her four-year-old son were not badly hurt, but her seven-month-old daughter was severely injured. Both of Éloïse's legs were broken, her back was broken and a vertebra in her neck was crushed. Two months after the accident, during another long and painful surgery, oxygen was cut off to Éloïse's brain and she suffered severe brain damage. Éloïse would never walk, talk or see again. For the next twelve years Éloïse needed constant medical attention, numerous corrective surgeries and help in every aspect of daily life.
