    Hello Everyone,
    I just had my interview with the Detroit Free Press reporter and it went very well!! She was very sympathic to our cause. She spent the day yesterday researching and was aware of many of our issues. She is sending a photographer over soon to take pictures of me and my family. I'm torn between worrying about whether I will have a good hair day or should I just looking awful and tired!!!

    Thank you all for your suggestions, I used them all! The story is scheduled to run in the Sunday September 3 issue of the Twist section of the paper. I hope the editing won't leave out anything important!!

    She also asked where I was recieving treatment, so she is going to call the FFC in Troy and talk to them! They should be very happy for the free publicity. Maybe they'll give me discount on my next visit! LOL!!

    Would you like us to e-mail this reporter?

    Thanks for the offer, but she uses her home email because she works at home, so I don't want to give that information out.

    I did tell her about this message board though, and she may browse to get more info for her story. She asked me if I had friends or a support group that helped, and I told her that this board has been most helpful. She has already been on this website and knows about the awareness campaign.

    If she asks me for more contacts, I;ll ask her if I can give out her email address.

    Thanks everyone!!!!!

    And if you are reading this, Ms. Journalist - thank you so much for giving this some ink!

    And well done, Mollystwin, for contacting them with the suggestion in the first place :)

    Best,

    Suzetal, no! We don't want her to look her best; her best looks very good! lol

    Seriously, mollystwin, thank you for doing this for all of us. I'll be here a bit west and north of you looking for the newspaper.
