Default Tim and I will be on MDA Telethon

As you all know I have been very involved with ALS. Terri with MDA of Alabama was there to help me long before we moved Tim home to Alabama. She knows how dedicated I am and wants Tim and I to be interviewed for the MDA Telethon. We feel honored to be a part of ALS Awareness. Of course, we said YES!

I am going to use my voice to speak for all. I am going to tell them about all the wonderful people I have met here and other places with ALS. And about my amazing brother, Tim. I knew and know that all the hard work will pay off.

I have posted her E-Mail Below:

Hi Lorie,

Hope your day is going well? As you know, May is ALS awareness month and we would like to do some profiles on people living with ALS. I was wondering if You and Tim and the rest of the family would be willing to do an interview with UTV44. They would come out to your house and do the interview with Tim and and You other family members who would be willing to talk on camera. The profile would run on our Telethon in September for sure. I would also see if they could run it on the local news during May. You and Tim seem so willing to speak out; I thought he/you would be great for an on camera interview. If this is something that interests Tim and you and the rest of the family, please let me know ASAP so I can contact UTV44.

Thanks so much. I look forward to hearing from you.
