Brandi Winans received news from Dr. Ann McKee on the results of the neuropathology study of brain samples
from her husband, Jeff Winans. Jeff died unexpectedly just before Christmas 2012 and had committed to provide
brain tissue to Dr. McKee’s Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy at Boston University.
The study did find presence of CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy) as most expected. But Dr. McKee also
discovered Argyrophilic Grain Disease, which is not normally present until a much older age. Brandi wanted to
share this information with everyone.
