I was lucky to come home at the same time that a benefit dinner was being held for my early childhood friend Michelle. Michelle's sister Monica and I have been attached at the hip since I was born, and have seen each other through a lot. Last summer, Michelle suffered a heart attack while at work and was unconscious for twenty minutes before she received CPR. She was 23. She remained in a coma for months in hospital. When she regained consciousness, the injuries to her brain had became apparent. She is going down a long road to recovery. Eager to help in every way, her friends organized the most amazing evening in her honour, a "Celebration of Life". Michelle had never looked more beautiful.
