Brandon Rowland will join other outstanding athletes as a member of the 2021 class of inductees into the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame.
Brandon Rowland is the son of longtime Forcum Lannom Business Development Executive Jim Rowland and his wife, Mary Pat.
In 1987, Brandon, then 6, was diagnosed with a very rare blood clotting condition, disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). Brandon was hospitalized more than nine weeks at LeBonheur Children’s Medical Center in Memphis – much of the time in extremely critical condition. His parents were told DIC patients had a 90% mortality rate at that time. Within the first two weeks, both legs were amputated below the knee to save his life. Afterward, he endured numerous skin graft surgeries and revisions to help his legs begin to heal. Next came long, arduous physical therapy sessions, being fit for custom prostheses, AND learning how to walk again.
Brandon’s story is not one of tragedy but determination and perseverance to live his life to the fullest!
