Jimmy Seay will be in-studio and Dee Calvert will talk by phone as Larry Rea discusses Jimmy’s life-changing struggles as a result of Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. There is strong evidence that the disease was likely contracted more than 5 years ago and went undiagnosed. Through the process Jimmy, who has mentored hundreds of young men through basketball, including 15 who went on the NBA, lost his marriage, family, reputation, career, health and time. The good news is that Jimmy is recovering and has an important story to share, so important that it will be featured in the first two segments of this week’s show. Jimmy got the tick from a hunting expedition. Dee, a former Memphian, is president & CEO of BioLargo, Inc., in La Mirada, CA.
