This is Tom.

After a successful career in journalism and senior corporate management, Thomas Ricke lost everything of value in his life to manic depression. 

After his wife of 22 years divorced him, suicide called to him daily. He could no longer function normally, but he never gave up.

Today Mr. Ricke is retired and living a normal life in Chicago with his significant other, Marilee. Symptoms of his mental illness have been asleep for more than a decade. There is absolutely no reason they will return. Mr. Ricke is available for speeches and interviews.
