I am still recovering from the surreal experience... A little over 24 hours ago, I was briefly (literally for less than 24 hours) in New York, at HBO Studios, after shooting a brief segment that will air Christmas Day as part of Hallmark Heroes. YES! I met Regis Philbin! The guy is super-cool and full of energy.
I had a chance to chat on camera with him for about two minutes, during which I shared a bit about TuDiabetes, the Diabetes Hands Foundation and the Global Diabetes Handprint. Along with this footage, Hallmark Channel will air a very cool 6-minute segment that they recently shot in the Bay Area. This will go on Christmas Day on Hallmark Heroes.
Along with this extraordinary opportunity, I also had the chance to meet three incredible people:
- Kathy Hatfield: founder of KnowItAlz, an Alzheimer’s Caregiver Community.
- John Beltzer: founder of Songs of Love, a nonprofit that provides songs for children facing tough medical, emotional or physical conditions.
- Hal Honeyman: president of Project Mobility, a nonprofit that makes bikes for disabled children.
