WBKR Remembers Neil Bradley [Video]

What a difference a couple of years can make in someone's life.  It was May of 2011 that Neil Bradley, from the American Red  Cross, visited the WBKR studios to teach members of our staff CPR.  Over the years, Neil has been in our studios multiple times on behalf of the Red Cross to chat about health, safety and First Aid initiatives.  He always brought with him a smile, a great sense on humor and an undeniable enthusiasm.  And it is with heavy hearts that we share the news this morning that Neil Bradley has passed away.

Thru his organization, it's Aaron, he recently surprised a 13 year-old girl with spina bifida. In conjunction with IndependenceFirst, he helped to make a memory with Kelly that will last a lifetime.
