Three years ago Kendal Levine was serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints when she was hit and nearly killed by a car.
The former Stansbury Park High Stallion athlete was serving her mission in Australia when a car going 35 miles per hour hit her and threw her 30 feet. The then 20-year-old missionary was in a coma with severe brain injury.
For weeks she didn’t respond, and some doctors wrote her off.
“The neurologist in charge said she’s not going to get any better. She is not going to walk or talk or eat on her own. She’s going to be a girl in a bed for the rest of her life. You need to put her in a home where they can care for her,” her mother Melodie said.
Miraculously Kendal began to recover. She has had to re-learn how to talk, eat, and walk. Monday at 10 Don Hudson talks to her about her recovery.
