"I had fallen in the beginning of May and had a concussion," Work said. "My doctor told me I couldn't work as much. … I knew that we couldn't go through the holidays with me not working full time and my daughter doing it all. So I had to make the call. My neurologist said I had to take care of myself and the only way I knew to do that was quitting."
