“11 years ago when I tried to commit suicide, a good friend saved my life by taking me to the hospital and having my stomach pumped. I didn't want to live then, but now I am so incredibly thankful. If I had died that night I would have missed so many amazing experiences- my friends, my dogs, meeting my husband, building a closer relationship with my family. I am thankful everyday that my friend gave me the gift of a second chance at life. I promise I won't waste it.”
