    in Health

    On April Fool’s Day 2000, while Angela was in Japan on military duty, her husband and four children were in a horrific car crash in California when their car fell 25 feet off the freeway, landing upside down on top of two parked vehicles with people inside.  Angela’s husband, their two daughters, and the people inside the parked vehicles survived.  Tragically, Angela and her husband's two 8 year-old sons died at the scene.  Angela experienced ache in the very depths of her soul but incredibly, and almost supernaturally, her sons left behind independent good-bye letters that gave her the very peace she needed to survive.  “Each letter answered specific questions that I would have wondered about for the rest of my life,” shares Angela.

    Grief Diaries Radio Show featuring guest Rachelle Friedman

    in Health

    There are very few moments that can happen in one’s life that can change everything forever. In a split second your relationships change, your job, your finances, your home, your clothes, your independence.  One moment gone terribly wrong and it’s all different. On May 23, 2010, Rachelle Friedman was playfully pushed into a pool by her best friend at her bachelorette party just weeks before her wedding. She hit the bottom of the pool head first, breaking her neck and causing a severe spinal cord injury. Rachelle had to face a difficult fact. She was now paralyzed from the chest down and would be a quadriplegic for the rest of her life.  


    Rachelle could have easily given up on life, constantly asked why her and wondered what if? But she made the decision to move forward in her life with positivity and determination. 13 weeks after her injury she began playing adapted sports such as wheelchair rugby, hand cycling and even surfing.  Within a year she had appeared on The Today Show, Headline News, MSNBC, Inside Edition and numerous news outlets both nationally and internationally to share her story of love, commitment, loyalty, and perseverance. She has been featured in Cosmopolitan magazine, In Touch magazine and as a guest on Vh1′s Couples Therapy.
