While working as a nurse back in 2012 the Virginia resident was driving home when she saw a smashed up car, inside the wreck was a man calling for help. After pulling over Bradshaw rang 911 for an ambulance and ran to the mans aid, stabilizing his neck and comforting him. Realizing the car was in a dangerous position she hoped the ambulance would arrive quickly. Sadly it did not. As she helped the injured man a van came speeding towards the car and hit both it and Bradshaw!! Her act of kindness helped save the injured mans life but cost her years of recovery, however if the car had been only inches closer to the road they both would have been killed! While recovering from her own injuries Bradshaw noticed a scar on her inner knee in the shape of a lightning bolt, much like that of Harry Potter!

"I ended up with curiously a lightening bolt shaped scar on the inside of my left knee. I hated it and cried at first, but then I began to think of it as a badge of honor. And…I was The Girl Who Lived!"

Unable to continue work as a nurse due to her injuries Bradshaw now works as a taxi driver and while working recently she spotted Radcliffe who was in the area shooting for his latest project Imperium. Seizing the opportunity Bradshaw approached the actor and explained her scar, asking him to sign near it The Girl Who Lived.
