Family has been there every step of the way, but at the end of the day, Lauren is home with their four kids and the last 10 months have weighed heavy on her mind.

Donnell said he remembers having tubes in his mouth, unable to talk, but he could see the hurt in Lauren's eyes. The helplessness and pain she felt. Taking the kids back and forth to Parkview Medical Center, spending their wedding anniversary in a hospital room and her husband in a coma.

Segment Three - Mariangel and CSU-Pueblo Volleybal

She was discovered by a Venezuelan boxer. Eleven years old and growing by the day, Mariangel Perez was tagging along with her mom to a coastal gym in northern Venezuela. Her Mom was a boxer and had to train for an upcoming fight. One of her Mom's partners took notice of Mariangel.  

"Have you ever played volleyball?"  

Mariangel, had not.

Brazil, Peru, & Argentina are regarded as the top three South American countries for indoor women's Volleyball. From 1964 to 2004, Venezuela failed to qualify for the Olympics. Eleven straight Olympics, 11 straight failures. As Mariangel aged, more gyms were opening and a Venezuelan volleyball identity started to take shape. In 2008, the Venezuelan National Volleyball Team not only qualified for the Olympics, they traveled to Beijing & placed.  

Perez's passion for the sport grew and offers to play collegiately in America arrived. In her first year with the CSU-Pueblo volleyball team, the sophomore is off to an explosive start! This is Mariangel Perez of Catia La Mar, Venezuela.
