Terry Evanshen

He was one of the greats. Member of the Canadian Football Hall of Fame, twice voted outstanding Canadian in the CFL, Grey Cup champion. And then, on July 4, 1988, in a single second Terry Evanshen nearly lost it all. The victim of a devastating car accident, Terry was so critically injured and so near death that a priest administered the last rites. In a coma for almost a month, when he finally did wake up, the news was devastating...he had lost his memory. With 44 years erased in an instant, he was without a past and his future looked bleak. The comeback trail has been slow and has met its share of setbacks, a veritable rollercoaster ride of highs and lows. But with the support of his family, Terry has managed to rebuild his shattered life. [+]
