Some of us in this life are lucky enough to have talents, but even fewer of us are lucky enough to turn those talents into passionate careers. For anyone in the performing arts arena, accomplishing this is a huge feat and one that isn't taken for granted. So when Sonya Bandouil's music career took a life-changing turn in Boston, she felt at a total loss. 

While strolling with her boyfriend looking for a place to eat in the Boston area, Bandouil was literally crushed by a crumbling building. The accomplished pianist, who traveled the world playing, was injured so badly she was in a coma for two weeks.
