It’s a story of a young woman who fought to survive after a deadly vehicle crash killed three of her Boston University classmates in New Zealand.


Meg Theriault was in the vehicle that day too. She survived, but her life was forever changed by a brain injury so significant that part of her skull had to be removed.

She had spent the semester abroad in Australia and was in New Zealand with 16 other students when the van she was riding in crashed.
