Before Nate walked into their life, the family took their first steps toward healing after an unusual prescription from Aaron's pediatrician.

After Eric's death, Aaron said something that terrified his grieving parents. "He said that he didn't want to be here anymore," Angela says.

Desperate for help, Angela and Jeff called their family pediatrician. "When he came into the office, it was not the Aaron that I knew," Dr. Corder says. "As I talked to him more, I said to him, 'What do you like to do?' And he said, 'I like to cook.' I said to him, 'We're gonna cook for your brother.'"

Dr. Corder gave Aaron $20. "I'm gonna be your first investor," she says. "And I want a business plan."
