Rose,

I understand how you feel. If I did not have this full time job that I need badly, I would be finding a way to travel and talk CCSVI. I live in a very small town and it's like GREEK to those who don't know what it is. They just look at me like I am nuts.

I don't even know how a person would start helping. I would help any way I can if needed with CCSVI education.

You know ... Dr. Burt at Northwestern got Edwin McClure on the Today show ...

Why don't we TRY get a bunch of liberated people on a national TV show ... to talk about the results. I'd bet Dr. Sclafani, Dr. Dake, maybe a few others ... and talk about the Kuwait results as well ...

We need to start PUSHING BACK like neuros and drug companies are pushing on us.

Thank you all.
I feel like that old Saturday Nite Live affirmation skit. I forget the name of the character but it used to put me on the floor.

Cheer~ My bags are packed. I am ready to roll.

Catfreak~ I don't think it matters if your town is small or a large city. CCSVI IS Greek to most people AND the medical community, thus our mission. Correct?

mshusband~ I did not know that CCSVI was presented on the Today Show. I was wondering if it would since, I think, Meredith Viera's husband has MS. How long ago? I will try to find archives. Was it a good presentation. Not familiar with those MDs. will look them up.
Thanks Again.

Sorry ... Dr. Burt and Northwestern are big in the Stem Cells ... not CCSVI.

Didn't mean to confuse anyone. There has been no CCSVI major media attention on TV in the US - YET.



I was saying WE SHOULD TRY to get some of the doctors (especially the ones from Kuwait that are testing everyone) and Dr. Sclafani, and Dr. Dake, etc on the Today show, or some other national TV show ... that'll spread the word quickly.

Agreed.
I will see what headway I can make to leave a message for Meredith Viera @ Today show.
They seem so approachable on TV, but who knows?
thanks! Rose ;)
ps. if someone else has already tried this please let me know how/what/where/when? thanks

You know, of course, Meridith Vieira's husband, Richard Cohen, has MS. He wrote a book about it, Blindsided.

I emailed him, his editor and publicist, as well as Meredith Viera several months ago and got no reply.
