CHRIS SPIELMAN

TUESDAY, MAY 15; 7 PM @ The Greene

(Line numbers beginning at 6 pm. Please show your books&co receipt for That’s Why I’m Here to get a line number.)

CHRIS SPIELMAN will discuss his book, That’s Why I’m Here: The Chris & Stefanie Spielman Story. Although known to many of you as an Ohio State Football legend and a four-time Pro Bowl NFL linebacker, this book not only talks about his remarkable life on the gridiron, but it will also give you a look into his personal life and that of his beloved wife, Stefanie. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1998 and for the next 11 years she met life head-on and continued living her storied life with her husband and four children, all the while undergoing treatment for cancer. She and Chris also used their time to raise money for cancer research, knowing that it may not help her, but it would help those who come after her. She died on November 19, 2009, but her spirit lives on. This book is a testament to a family going through a most difficult time, but who met its challenges with an unwavering faith.
