At the last Moment, the family was able to prevent this plan. The father remembered that she had changed from that Moment on even more. You have spoken like a robot. "We asked us all: What has happened to our Kelly?"

The first, unsuccessful attempt at suicide was not the only indication that the young woman could not cope with the life. 27. February, published on the Website VeloNews article in which the medical student of the double burden as a doctoral student and Athlete wrote.

"The greatest strength that you can develop is the ability to recognize his own weaknesses and to realize when you need help. This is a lesson to learn I'm starting only now, slowly and painfully. And I fail still." For the otherwise always fighting and use of full Athlete, it was probably the last cry for help – even if not necessarily on the lute.

Many suicide cases in the American Football

the Catlins fate is not the only case in US sports with this problem. In the brutal American Football there are several examples of professionals who took to the brain vibrations, or due to brain life diseases. The 25-year-old O. J. Murdock killed himself in his old school. Previously, the wide receiver of the Tennessee Titans, several coaches had sent an SMS with the text: "I'm sorry."

Or take the example of Junior Seau. The former, known to the defensive player did not bear the consequences of his severe brain trauma: the Shaking, the weakness, the limitations in daily life, Depression. On 2. In may 2012, he took his own life at the age of 43 years.

"Can I have your brain?"

Nowinski is trying to operate in the US education. "Something Strange and Deadly is happening in the brains of top – level sport is a degenerative Suffering, the leads may be in connection with concussions, dementia, psychosis, and premature death bring about learning", he begins often during his lectures. "It's called CTE, and the medical mystery I want to solve by examining brains after death."

Therefore, Nowinskis is the first question when he meets a professional athlete: "Can I have your brain?"
