Sometimes you are faced with challenges you never even knew existed. When we lost Patrick to the ravages of CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) in 2014 our lives changed dramatically and sadly. Patrick came into our life as a blessing and left as an inspiration and a lesson: to stop CTE. Our new challenge is sharing our recent awareness and spreading information to prevent the disease, support those suffering, and inform those who may be there to help. We are not website designers, doctors, lawyers, researchers, or athletes. We are the heartbroken friends and family of a great young man lost much too soon. Thank you for visiting our site and we encourage you to visit often and feel free to share and contribute.
