American Man is a documentary filmed and produced by Jon Frankel, Correspondent for HBO Real Sports, that tells the story of local hero Kevin Turner, a football superstar forced to reflect on the price he paid for his glory years. Doctors told him in May 2010 that his once elite body was withering, consumed by ALS, a fatal disease. At about the same time, scientists discovered that the concussions of contact sports were to blame for many traumas of the brain, and likely, his diagnosis of ALS. This powerful and moving story proves that even while facing death, Kevin Turner is fashioning a proud legacy.
All proceeds to benefit The Kevin Turner Foundation
About The Kevin Turner Foundation:Started in November 2010, The Kevin Turner Foundation has been created to bring attention to ALS and the need for a cure; to raise awareness about the seriousness of brain trauma in athletes at every level of competition and its connection to motor neuron diseases like ALS; and to financially support efforts to study, treat, prevent and ultimately cure this disease.
