PRLog - April 11, 2012 - The story of defenseman Steve Tomassini extends beyond the thrill of hitting a hockey puck into a net. It travels deeper, into the spirit and camaraderie of his hockey teammates and into the fragile mind of his beleaguered brother, who is battling mental illness.
Steve Tomassini is more than a local business owner. He is a dedicated athlete whose gifts portend a promising future in the world of professional hockey. Steve's success as a talented defenseman for Boston University's hockey team appears to be in stark contrast to the trajectory his brother's life is taking. While brother Tony, a Boston University graduate, shares Steve's courage and determination, his efforts are focused on salvaging his battered and bruised life. After cycling in and out of mental institutions, Tony heroically confronts his personal challenges and resolves to win.
