Just talked with Reggie and he had a phenomenal time at the book signing event last night thanks to Greg Gorman. Reggie said he met a lot of great people and took a lot of photos. He’s going to try to email me one or two to put on the site until he gets back. PHOTOS
In any event, if you were at the party on Wednesday, please leave a comment so we can live vicariously through Reggie’s amazing life!

Our friend, Louise Cunningham from Scotland, sent this. I thought I would share it with you here:
In Phoenix , Arizona , a 26-year-old mother stared down at her 6 year old son, who was dying of terminal leukemia.
Although her heart was filled with sadness, she also had a strong feeling of determination. Like any parent, she wanted her son to grow up & fulfill all his dreams. Now that was no longer possible..
The leukemia would see to that. But she still wanted her son’s dream to come true. She took her son’ s hand and asked, ‘Billy, did you ever think about what you wanted to be once you grew up? Did you ever dream and wish what you would do with your life?
“Mommy, I always wanted to be a fireman when I grew up.’
Mom smiled back and said, ‘Let’s see if we can
make your wish come true.’ Continue reading →
Joining me at the Mickey Leeland Federal Building in downtown Houston this morning were Drs.Bart Moore and John Slopis from M.D. Andersen Cancer Center; Sandra Parker and her daughter, Emily, Lou and myself. Sandra is a consumer reviewer for the research integration panel for the Department of Defense. She helps decide which NF research projects get funded based on consumer need and importance.
Congresswomen Jackson took time to meet with us even though she was hard-pressed for time having to fly back to Washington immediately after our meeting. I have to say she was great! She remembered me from a NF function years ago and was genuinely interested in everything we had to say. She seemed quite interested in our story (Emily’s and mine) and after getting all the information she needed, told us that she would sign the petition to fund research for neurofibromatosis.
Congresswoman Lee also recommended other possible sources of funding that we should be aware of through the government. She will be signing on to keep funding research that will help neurofibromatosis, as well as other types of disorders that could lead to cancer. Everyone should be happy about that has happen today. All of us can benefit from this funding and from the wise support and leadership of Sheila Jackson Lee! – Reggie
