SPOTLIGHT DANCER TORI ANDREOZZI
On March 26, 2003, 12-year-old Tori Lynn Andreozzi was struck by a drunk driver while walking home from school. Suffering a traumatic brain injury, Tori survived the impact but has lived in a state of minimum consciousness and paralysis ever since. In honor of her daughter, Cathy Andreozzi began the Tori Lynn Andreozzi Foundation, a non-profit organization which seeks to educate young people on good decision making, including the perils of drinking and driving. Today, Tori benefits from weekly FES bike therapy sessions.
