The Doctors welcome back Bryan Stow, who was viciously attacked at a baseball game in 2011 and beat into a coma. He is happy to share how he turned the near-tragedy into an opportunity to help people in need.
Bryan was beaten by two fans at a Dodgers game for simply wearing an opposing team's shirt and left unconscious. After the attack, he was in a coma for 9 months. Due to his severe brain trauma, he was forced to relearn how to do almost everything in his life from breathing, eating, walking, and speaking.
He is now inspiring and helping others through The Bryan Stow Foundation, which helps combat bullying and lessen fan violence at sporting events. He works extensively with kids and schools in an effort to stop bullying at a young age.
Bryan updates us sharing he has spoken at 362 schools about bullying and anti-bullying. He tells the kids out there, "If you sense you are going to get bullied, talk to an adult."
Our creator and executive producer Jay McGraw, who wrote the book "Jay McGraw's Life Strategies for Dealing with Bullies," echoes Bryan's wise words by adding, "We've got to tell our kids, if you are seeing someone who is being bullied... you've got to go tell somebody." He says if we all work to make bullying "the uncool thing" it can go a long way to stopping it.
