GREEN BAY -- A special documentary on a woman once considered the first woman of Packers Football.
The Legacy of Jackie Nitschke will tell the story of how her struggle with alcohol led to a legacy of change and empowerment for people battling addiction across the country.
"It's a real demon. It ruins people's lives. She wasn't ashamed of what he fought to overcome," says daughter Amy in the documentary.
The film is the result of a collaborative effort between the Jackie Nitschke Center, a national leader in addiction recovery, and an award-winning advertising agency in Green Bay.
The film is expected to debut next year.
