WE DID IT!!! After a year and a half of hard work and perseverance, the Youth Concussion Legislation unanimously passed through the Florida Senate and House of Representatives! All Florida youth athletes will now be better protected from concussions. Thank you so much to everyone who has supported me through my concussions, my work as a concussion awareness advocate, and the legislative process. We could not have done it without you, and we are so happy and relieved! A special thank you to Senator Anitere Flores and Representative Ronald “Doc” Renuart for their sponsorship of the bill and the tremendous amount of effort they put forth in order to get it passed. Another special thank you to Kenneth Edmonds of the NFL, who represented the league’s support of the legislation throughout the legislative process.
