)-- Free To Grieve: A Mother's Memoir In Black and White is a mother’s moving and powerful narrative about a remarkable son who died too soon. It is the true story of Timothy Q. Scott, an avid-athlete who starred on his high school football team at Owings Mills High School.
Timothy unexpectedly died in his sleep from sudden cardiac death, which is the #1 killer of young athletes. Teleah Scott-Williams never had a chance to say goodbye to her 16-year-old son. This revealing and honest memoir is about the events surrounding her son's sudden death and how she came to pull herself from the depths of grief and sorrow to service and public awareness.
“How many more young athletes have to die before heart screenings are taken more seriously?” Scott-Williams asks. What was the price for my son's life? As athletes across the country continue to die from this silent killer, this mother’s genuine love for her son resolves to tell his tragic story to the world in hopes that someone will take her message to heart.
Scott-Williams lives with her family in Owings Mills, Maryland, and is the founder of the Timothy Q. Scott Foundation whose mission is visualized through its “Real Football Players Don’t Sleep,” grassroots advocacy program that supports the development of local and national screenings to detect early signs of heart disease in young athletes by requiring physicians to perform a heart screening prior to approving participation in sporting activities.
