My Life, Deleted—part love story, part medical mystery, and part inspirational memoir—is the true story of Scott Bolzan, the 46-year-old former pro football offensive lineman for the Cleveland Browns who suffered permanent amnesia after a tragic accident.

Co-written with his wife Joan Bolzan, this riveting account details Scott's courageous fight to build a new life after losing all memories of his past, his wife and children, his likes and dislikes, and even how to navigate the fast pace and technology of the 21st century.

Readers of In an Instant by Bob and Lee Woodruff, Jill Bolte Taylor's My Stroke of Insight, and Richard M. Cohen's Blindsided will be profoundly moved by My Life, Deleted, a remarkable story of tragedy, hope, love, and perseverance.

An inspiring account of a man and his family and their efforts to overcome the effects of a tragic fall that causes the man to lose almost all or all of his memory and their efforts to overcome the effects of the memory loss.

A day that starts off like any day at the office for Scott Bolzan, ends with a brain injury and the inability to remember anything from his life: his family, his business, what a cell phone is…. This is the story of what happens to an over-achieving daughter, a drug-addicted son, a wife and mother who has never been in charge of the family finances, and a husband and father just trying to cope with basic life skills. This is the story of how a life gets rebuilt when everything gets taken away and how you can fall in love all over again – even when you don’t remember doing it the first time
