Last evening a friend gave me one of the greatest gifts possible–Purpose. It happened over the phone almost by accident…in seconds he uttered words that gave me a future where I could continue my battle with that shitty hospital–Tufts Medical Center–and help others. I now embark on a journey of helping others in similar predicaments. He gave me purpose.

Lately, I felt out of sorts and since my fall (April 2012), I lacked purpose and now I do. It happened so casually I laughed out loud. Still I can’t believe in less than one hour, a person I never met ignited my fire from coals of passion buried deep within me.

For the first time since my fall, I slept like a baby last night.

Good Morning, I am Angela Grant and my purpose is to wake YOU up.
