My Co-Host is Rico Petrini #49, an All-Conference Linebacker and Team MVP at Oregon State University,  went from near perfect health to extreme behavioral, neurological, and physical changes this past year at age 49. For more on Rico's story, listen to 2nd hour of show 3-23. Rico will be further enlightening us on CTE and the NFL/NCAA flawed integrity offering support.

Ken Bartolo will join us - 2 sport college athlete football and lacrosse. Just over a year with the Buffalo Bills, on & off  practice squad professionally as well as 3 years of professional lacrosse with Rochester Greywolves. After 24 concussions he went from an active motivational speaker to few engagements. Symptoms started presenting themselves 13 years ago. His diagnosis went from post concussion syndrome to CTE within a year.

We'll also be discussing Justin Bannan, NFL Player for 9yrs with multiple teams. He was confirmed to have suffered brain injury from multiple hits and begun a rapid decline culminating in an act of violence in a delusional state. He received 16 yrs for the incident, was not allowed to present any brain injury related information or suspected CTE, nor have any experts speak to behavior associated with his amygdala high jack. He has a brain shunt, currently in a Colorado Prison awaiting appeal/compassionate care release as his health is rapidly declining without medical care.

This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load of our journey through recovery. This is a we recovery program, because it is in the we that we find the new me. We focus on four A's of Recovery: Awareness, Acceptance, Action & Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become warriors!
