Brennan continued, "I battled drug and alcohol abuse, and eventually developed blood clots years after the car accident."
"I spent 9 months in the hospital and for the last 2 1/2 years have been trying to learn how to walk again with a broken heart."
"I found redemption once, I will find it again. They say: 'Some people are just born to fight, and it’s not their born brave or born strong.

They will face trial after trial, be broken and damaged in countless ways, but this one was born to fight.'"
