I’m proud to say that this year serving as honorary chair of the 2nd Annual Brain Tumor Walk NYC, we had over 1,850 participants, a 50% increase from last year, and we raised $455,000 so far and are expected to reach $500,000 by the time the tallies are complete for research towards finding a cure. That’s a great increase from last year’s $320,000.
My involvement with this foundation came out of a simple tweet from a viewer. Jay Helms volunteers endless hours to NBTS. He saw the episode on Bravo where we shared Victoria’s triumph. After working together the past several months, Jay has become part of our family. Great things can come from reality TV. This is honestly one of the things I am most proud of -- when you open up and share your stories. Thank you Bravo TV and Sirens Media along with Purveyors of Pop for encouraging us to share Victoria’s story!
That’s all for now, another big week ahead. Victoria is graduating high school in a few days, so I need to go stock up on some tissues.
Have a good week!
