136: Pain Into Purpose
Melanie Langston-Bazzell is one of the strongest people I have ever met. After a traumatic accident on a San Diego freeway, Melanie suffered major injuries to her brain and other parts of her body.
There's no doubt she went through a period of depression, but rather than feeling sorry for herself, she decided to get active for the animals because she knew exactly what it meant to not have a voice. Melanie's story is truly heart-warming and I hope you all experience the same joy hearing it as I did!
