Suddenly, the van door swings shut and hits you in the head. You think, "Wow!! That hurt, but it's nothing an ice pack can’t solve." A few months after this happened to Meg Stainsby, she was sitting at her family’s Thanksgiving dinner table when she suddenly recalled signing papers to sell the home she shared with her two daughters and dog in order to move into a small two-bedroom condominium.

Each story shows that MBI touches the lives of individuals from all strata of society, from the media famous to the relatively unknown.
