There have been only few times when I’ve been completely blown away by someone’s courage and honesty. But I have to say that as I’ve been reading the biographical stories of NFL star Charles Haley, I have been incredibly inspired. The Dallas Cowboy Hall of Famer not only had the grit to become a five-time Super Bowl champ but even more remarkable, he has learned to manage bipolar disorder and become a spokesman, an advocate, a champion for mental health.
It was an incredible privilege to be on the Scott Murray radio show recently when Scott first interviewed Charles and then several of us from The Well Community. We had a great visit together that made me all the more eager to hear Scott and Charles continue the conversation at The Well Auxiliary’s April 4 WellSpring Celebration Luncheon at the Belo Mansion. In addition to hearing more of Charles’ story, we’ll be giving him the new Well Community Courage and Advocacy Award. I sure hope you’ll join us.
Below is a quick clip from the radio show.
