Tori Andreozzi was a victim of a hit-and-run drunk driving on March 26, 2003, when she was on her way from school. The girl was 12 years old, and the accident changed her life and those around her. The accident resulted in Tori having severe brain damage and having to live in a wheelchair for the rest of her life. Tori survived the accident but can never go to school like normal kids or do anything like she would have, as the injury rendered her unable to speak or walk. Before the accident, the girl was a champion of black belt karate and dance. Despite the accident, Tori led an inspiring life when she competed in a dance competition and won it in 2019.

Tori’s mother, Cathy, was so devastated by the tragic accident her daughter went through that she created an organization to educate young minds on wise decision-making and making a difference. The organization promotes legislation to improve road and highway safety and awareness of brain injury patients while supporting their families in trying times. Tori and Cathy met Dante Bellini two years later while working with Mothers Against Drunk Driving, and he instantly became part of the family. He worked with the mother and the daughter in his Ripple Effect campaign for the R.I. Department of Transportation Office.
