    Dr Oz. thank you for having Michael Brannigan in your show.
    I am a coach with Rolling Thunder, under Steve Cuomo that helps train some of our athletes to throw the shot put and the Discus. Rolling Thunder is an inspirational club that gives hope to athletes that know they can exceed but are held back by the system. Steve Cuomo is a wonderful man with a passion to help all athletes.
    Mikey is a super hero in my book. He is an inspiration to all of us at Rolling Thunder and I am sure to all human beings. Not only is he a superb athlete but also a wonderful young man. I must give his parents praise for doing such a wonderful job with helping him accomplish his goals. Mickey, good luck with your college venture. Don’t look back and keep your spirits high.
