Grant had been hosting backyard barbecues every summer and if you lived any where close to him you would definitely receive an invitation.
After a traumatic brain injury earlier that year you can imagine how excited he was to see his friends again. He now had impaired hand eye coordination but Grant was still set on flipping his neighbourhood famous burgers.
You can imagine the horror on the neighbours faces when Grant suddenly dropped his spatula, clutched his arm, and fell violently to the floor.
It was later discovered at the hospital that Grant had suffered from a stroke as a consequence of his earlier brain injury.
