“Illnesses of the Famous: Terry Bradshaw”
In Louisiana, Terry Bradshaw, No. 12, is readily recognized and admired. But, his life has been challenged with various health-related situations. Terry Bradshaw may have four Super Bowl rings, but one of his toughest matches has been depression. After his third wife asked for a divorce in 1999, Bradshaw was drinking to self-medicate before seeking help. After talking to his pastor, Bradshaw found that a combination of talk therapy and medication worked for him. Now, he’s using his experience to advocate for addressing depression head-on. Consequently, Bradshaw is a highly sought-after motivational speaker for Fortune 500 companies. Terry has also helped to raise an impressive amount of money and awareness for charitable organizations. Terry Bradshaw is an actor, singer and beloved sports and entertainment figure and for his many raucous appearances on the Tonight Show, with Jay Leno. From his early days playing for Louisiana Technical University when he was named an “All-American”, to being the first player selected in the 1970 draft and going on to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Bradshaw’s career can only be described as outstanding.
