Tracy Yatsko is passionate about raising awareness on concussions in youth sports.Her concussion story should NEVER happen to another youth athlete. By hearing her story, hopefully coaches, parents, and athletes will take the right steps in protecting their athletes, children, and selves from future damage. Concussions should stop being a "scary" topic that make parents fear of putting their children in sports. However, this is only the case if people are well informed and can take proactive steps, and not reactive.
