Gifford family says he was diagnosed with CTE (a progressive degenerative brain disease) before he passed. But the Giffords don’t appear to hold a grudge with the NFL over Frank’s condition — saying they SUPPORT the league … just as Frank did.
The family says they’re donating Frank’s brain “in hopes of contributing to the advancement of medical research concerning the link between football and traumatic brain injury.” h/t tmz
