After a life of football, Joe Namath fears he has brain damage. But he's sold on a dubious treatment -- and wants others to buy in too.

In 2012, [Joe Namath] began an experimental hyperbaric oxygen treatment from two doctors at Jupiter. Neither of them was a neurological specialist, but after 120 trips into Jupiter's oxygen chambers, Namath perceived extraordinary improvement in his brain function. And ever since, he's been telling the world -- friends, teammates, reporters -- about the benefits of his therapy. Last September he and Jupiter officials launched the Joe Namath Neurological Research Center. With great fanfare, they announced their goal to a throng of media at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York: to raise $10 million for a clinical trial of hyperbaric oxygen on 100 subjects suffering from symptoms of brain damage. Namath would be the lead fundraiser and cheerleader for the project.
