Blindsided: Story how Brad and Heather Bigler Handled Tragedy

Many people know the stories of tragedy for Brad and Heather Bigler over the last couple of years, but many people do not. This story written by CBS Sportsline describes the various perspectives pretty well along with a video. Thanks for listening and caring.
