CTE Awareness Day
Thursday, January 30, 2020
This is a day to reflect on those lost to CTE, how to help those suffering with the disease, and most importantly how to stop the disease. The StopCTE website is full of helpful information, treatment discussions, prevention strategies, etc. Share the website with families and friends. Also like us on Facebook and Twitter at StopCTE.
If you suffer from possible CTE this is a great day to share your story. Most people with possible CTE are great and dynamic individuals with great stories. Don’t suffer in silence. Call your local newspaper and tell them about your history and symptoms and goals to warn others about the disease and ways you’ve learned to overcome the obstacles. See this link for a nicely done article. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-5236797/Former-college-football-player-believes-CTE.htmlLocal papers usually share with other papers nationally.

Also if you are in the Pittsburgh area we will be on the Pittsburgh Today Live morning show on KDKA, CBS Channel 2, between 9-10 am on the 30th.
See Doug’s talk about CTE here:
Families who have lost loved ones to CTE: contact your local state legislator and ask to have your loved one mentioned in a resolution in your state for CTE Awareness Day. See this template for ideas
If you work with kids and would like to share info about CTE and give away free sport headbands, please contact us with your name and address, place they will be distributed, and the quantity needed.
And lastly, remember that CTE is an invisible disease. If you know anyone who dies from suicide or drug overdose or an irrational act, please encourage the family to do a free brain autopsy. This helps the family understand what happened and helps scientists seek ways for a cure. The brochure link is here. https://stopcte.org/W/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/DonorBrochure.pdf

What a wonderful day! Thank you to all our supporters for helping us create a fun day for families while spreading the message of protecting children’s brains.

Brain Injury Awareness Day
March 21-22, 2017, Washington, D.C.
Your support was crucial in sending a strong message to Congress that brains are precious, that most traumatic brain injuries – and CTE – are entirely preventable, and that both adults and children deserve healthy brains. Help us save families from our pain. With your help we can make a big difference.
CTE Awareness Day, January 30, 2017, 1:00 pm, St. Regis, Houston, TX
This was the kick-off event to show the Faces of CTE. We were joined by many families impacted by the disease, and heard from athletes working to keep their fellow players healthy. Please see the CTE Press page to read all about it.
Thank you for joining us in DC on Wednesday, March 16, 2016,The message:
We had 10 families join us who lost a loved one to CTE from playing sports. We also had some famous NFL players joining us: Sean Morey and Mike Haynes (Hall of Famer). We had a booth at the Congressional Brain Injury Awareness Fair and visited offices to ask for our nation to protect children under the age of 14 from the dangers of CTE by keeping repeated head trauma out of games and practices until older.
Thank you for joining us on Friday, January 8, 2016, at the Loews Theater on the Waterfront to showcase the movie Concussion and our cause.
It was such a great night spreading awareness and raising money to save lives and families. Your support meant the world to us.
