Remembering Christopher Reeve
At the hospital, Molly spent almost eight hours in surgery, literally fighting for her life. Doctors told Molly's parents their daughter had suffered a serious spinal cord injury and that she was paralyzed from her triceps down. Two days later, Molly's lung collapsed. She remained in intensive care for 18 days, and doctors told her parents that she had a one percent chance of walking or moving her hands.
