Your program has been a lifesaver for my son, Jeffrey Sweeney (quarterback with his school team, the Houston County Sharks in the white jerseys) who suffered a massive stroke at the age of 14. He became severely depressed and had lost his will to keep going; he was giving up. His schoolwork was failing, his no-quit attitude was slipping and his will to be the best was fading. Joining this team gave it all back to him and then some. The team gave him a reason to keep going. I will never be able to put into words how grateful I am. This program gave my son back a part of his life that was taken from him.
