My heart is exploding with pride and joy and my eyes are crying enormous tears of happiness! After 3 years of fighting to get the word out about rare chromosome disorders, TODAY, the dream came true!
WPIX Channel 11 Morning News aired a segment by reporter, Dan Mannarino, about J-Bean and Izzy meeting for the first time.
The PIX web site has received thousands of hits and Dan got a call from AOL.com, asking to make our story the video of the day…
Now, when you Google the title of the video, the search results show the video is on the web sites of KTLA (Los Angeles), Fox 5 San Diego (San Diego), Chicago Tribune (Chicago), Fox 59 (Indianapolis).
My hands are still shaking as I am typing!
And I just found out that a parent registered with The Chromosome Disorder Outreach because of the story. AMAZING!!!!
Of course, I need to thank Laura Gallagher for bringing it to the attention of the executive producer at WPIX News (name withheld until I get permission to add it), Dan Mannarino of WPIX Morning News, Carmine Iacullo and the Knights of Columbus, Azriel Novogroder of Novogrow and the simply wonderful Kelley family…none of this could have been completed without each and every one of you!
Without further ado…THE VIDEO!!!
