Hello! My name is Danielle Bramlage and I am a victim survivor.
When I was 6 years old I survived a drunk driving crash. I was riding with my father and my younger brother when we were hit head on by a drunk driver. I received a severe head injury and my father recieved multiple injuries. My father's girlfriend, who was in the passenger seat, received head injuries after hitting the front window. The drunk driver died from his injuries in the crash.
In 2013, I joined MADD KY as a volunteer speaker and I help with service awareness in Northern KY. I am a first grade elementary school teacher for the Boone County school district and the children I teach are the same age I was when I was injured in the drunk driving crash. I want to help MADD KY raise money to support victims of drunk and drugged driving crashes. Protecting children is our greatest responsibility.
