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.

Back cover copy

On December 17, 2008, 46-year-old Scott Bolzan hit his head on the bathroom floor and awoke in a hospital with no memory of who he was or how he got there. He didn't know that the petite blond at his side was Joan, his wife of twenty-four years--or even what a wife was. He couldn't remember the births of his two young-adult children, the daughter he'd lost, his time as an offensive lineman for the NFL's Cleveland Browns, or his flourishing aviation career.

With heart-rending honesty and no shortage of humor, the Bolzans share their remarkable journey as Scott finds his way in a now-unfamiliar world and reinvents himself as a man, husband, and father. The challenges are initially overwhelming, but My Life, Deleted is above all else a celebration of extraordinary perseverance. Throughout it all, what emerges--against all odds--is an enviable love story, as Scott and Joan fall in love all over again.
