The severity of her injuries were some of the worst that the UCH doctors, trauma surgeons, and staff had ever seen. After an aggressive stabilization and multiple surgeries, Devyn woke up and began the long road to recovery with the help of doctors, medical staff, rehab specialists, and the unconditional support from her family. This is a story which, instead of ending in tragedy, became a tale of courage, love, and hope.
