Hollister, CA, November 05, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- It was every parent’s worst nightmare. On a sunny morning in April 2012, a Maryland state trooper rang Betty Shaw’s doorbell and delivered the grim news that her 17-year-old daughter, Liz, had been involved in a horrific car accident and was clinging to life.
Liz recovered from her life-threatening injuries but suffered severe and permanent effects from the accident.
Texting while driving caused Liz’s crash, and she and her mother embarked on a mission to educate people about the perils of distracted driving, which gave Liz a reason to live.
In chronicling Liz’s inspirational journey, Betty describes Liz’s pre-accident life as an aspiring model and rebellious teenager who harbored anger over her parents’ divorce; Liz’s painstaking recovery from her accident, which rendered her disfigured and triggered suicidal thoughts; and highlights of Liz and Betty’s national tour, which included an appearance on Oprah Winfrey’s Where Are They Now? show.
