Toney still faces an uphill battle in her recovery from the accident. It took Toney months to take her first steps, but she continues to enjoy life's moments.

"I've walked halfway through the aisle, and we got married," Toney said.

Since the accident, Toney has become an advocate against drunk driving. 

"If this story can get out and save one person from going out and getting behind the wheel and causing an accident, I've accomplished something in my life," Toney said.
