The story of Brendan McDonnell's struggle with the suicide of his father, and how his subsequent actions have become an inspiration to many.
Brendan’s Dad, Herman, was a Tattoo Artist and Biker for over 20 years.
He was a very big, strong, intelligent and influential man.
In fact, the most influential Brendan has ever known.
He was also a husband and raised 3 sons.
But, he suffered from mental illness and he was inevitably overcome by the doom and gloom that is depression.
He completed suicide in November of 2007.
Nobody is immune to mental illness.
If Herman suffered
You can too.
