Life-changing: The mother was hit with her face against a steel beam in a horrific motorcycle accident. She has undergone seven reconstructive surgeries so far
Her children were then 10 and 14; her youngest was there when she crashed, but luckily in a separate vehicle.
Hope’s daughter explains that her mother was shipwrecked outside a paramedic’s home and that her screaming as a little girl drew his attention to the accident.
“He came running and he had her ready before even an ambulance arrived,” she recalls the man who saved her mother’s life.
“Hope is very lucky to have a paramedic,” Dr. Dubrow notes in his testimony. “Ironically, the worst day in her life was also, strangely, one of the happiest.”

She admits she doesn’t like the look of her drooping eye and explains, “I don’t have two of the same eyes.”

“If I had to rely on it to breathe, I would choke,” she explains.

“I really don’t remember,” says Hope’s oldest daughter, pausing.
When Dr. Nassf asks her to elaborate, she says she doesn’t remember the details of what she did on a daily basis.
Hope can barely speak as she holds back tears after discovering that her daughter has blocked the traumatic moment in their lives.
“I feel like what happened to me is unlike what happened to them emotionally,” she says in her testimony. “I feel like they will always wear that.”
