PHOENIX (KSAZ) -

One year-ago an Arizona mom was on life support expected to die while her daughter was in danger of losing her leg. All this after they were hit by a drunk driver driving the wrong way down I-17.

The family is now home and still recovering.

"I remember seeing headlights coming towards our car and I blacked out... I woke up and my mothers head was in my lap and the window was shattered" said Chance Molzan.

"I remember them getting the dashboard off me, like cutting me out of the car which I remember that was very painful," said Molzan.

The next thing Molzan remembered is waking up at Phoenix Children's Hospital, her severed hands and broken leg were put back together.

"That's what they said when I got there, make your peace, say goodbye," said Chance's father Bo Molzan.

Chance's father Bo was balancing time with his 13 yr old daughter and his wife Marci who was expected to die. A year later she still struggles with traumatic brain injury.

"There are a lot of other hurdles though that they don't see as far as a family I don't allow them the window into the suffering that occasionally happens with the healing that I go through," said Marci Molzan.

Marci can no longer work. She struggles with confusion, focus, and completing everyday tasks but her concern is with her daughter's recovery.

"So I'm just pleased as pie with her being able to walk and progress as well physically," said Marci.

Chance still has a lot of metal in her body but despite that she still is unable to run.

"It sounds kind of weird but I don't really remember how to run, its kind of weird to forget something that you used to do every single day," said Chance.

The now difficult drive down I-17 reminds the family that their lives are now what they call a new normal.

"It kind of amazes me how far we've come and how far well go I'm just grateful my mother is here with me and we're all together again," said Chance.

The Molzan's say they have pity for the man convicted of driving drunk and causing the injuries. That man 42 year-old, Johnny Bonnie is now serving 10 1/2 years in prison. The family says he's not a bad person, he just made a bad choice.
