Despite debilitating disease, former Alabama fullback takes brain-injury message to Washington-U.S. Senate | #ALS AWARENESS #LouGehrigsDisease #PARKINSONS | Scoop.it
Former Alabama and NFL fullback Kevin Turner served as a panelist at a legislative briefing on the long-term consequences of sports-related brain injuries and concussions for the U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging and the Congressional Brain Injury Task Force. Turner said only a few words on Wednesday in Washington - not because he didn't have plenty he wanted to say, but because the disease that's taking his life bit by bit makes it hard for him to be understood.

After 10 of the most heart-sinking and yet inspiring years, Steve Smith continues to amaze from the hospital bed in his living room.
