- Terry shares the struggles he went through,
- Perservance of the human spirit & how he survived & came back to life.
Terry Evanshen, one of the Canadian Football League’s greats, was in a devastating car collision that changed his life forever.
Evanshen’s 12-year struggle to rebuild his sense of self and a meaningful life, with the unending patience and encouragement of his family.
In a coma of over a month, he finally awoke to discover he had absolutely no memory – 44 years erased in an instant.
Terry shares the struggles he went through, the perservance of the human spirit and how he survived and came back to life.
Evanshen was a man given to irrational outbursts of anger, a byproduct not only of frustration at his ineptitude for the simplest of tasks, but a common side-effect of the injuries that shattered his brain.
He was awarded the CFL Hall of Fame, Courage to Come Back Award. The man with the golden hands during 14 seasons as a wide receiver a CFL Hall of Famer and twice a Schenley award winner, had no recollection of how to catch a football.
This is a story of faith, personal growth and triumph! A man who had to relearn the life skills he’d forgotten, from speaking and writing to how to laugh and how to love.
