Destany, a varisty cheerleader at 16 years old, was at the top of a pyramid when it unexpectedly collapsed. She endured a severe concussion, spinal shock, and was unable to walk on her own. She had major loss of motor strength on the right side of her body. She could not walk, write, or feel with her right hand. She had trouble reading and suffered from severe headaches.
Destany underwent six months of extensive occupational and physical therapy and made a dramatic recovery.
