DEREK SHEELY: LEADING THE WAY TO HELP OTHERS
On August 28, 2011, we lost our beloved son and brother Derek Sheely to a sports-related brain injury. It is inconceivable to us how, with all the attention on concussions, there is still no unified enforcement to prevent dangerous drills, stop false safety claims, or ensure proper medical attention to concussed athletes. We are haunted by the knowledge that Derek’s death was preventable, and we feel an obligation to share lessons that could prevent other children from suffering Derek’s fate.
