A place to talk about NF, have fun and share.

THE 19TH ANNUAL GOODWILL GALA

goodwill.gifLast night was the 19th Annual Goodwill Gala. Mom and I was invited. Goodwill and I go back a long way. It was there I had my first job. NF has changed all of that. Many of the things I was able to do before, I can’t do anymore.

I learned a lot and saw a lot of old friends. I met a lot of new ones too! I hope Goodwill will continue the terrificreggiedorothygoodwill.jpg work they are doing for all of the great people that have jobs because of Goodwill. Maybe some here have worked for goodwill, and would like to share how thay have been helped like so many others employed By Goodwill.

  1. Hello Reggie,

    My name is Michelle, I have a nephew with NF named Jesse.

    You are a wonderful man and I love what you have done to educate people about NF. My sister, Jesse’s mom, sent me a link to your video on youtube.com. Keep up the great work…

    Right now, my family has sent a video into the TV show Deal or No Deal, hoping that they will pick us to go on their show to raise money for NF. We are keeping our fingers crossed and praying that we will get on the show to make NF more widely known and to get lots of money for research. My nephew wrote his own little speech for the video, it was very touching, he said, ” Hi I am Jesse Sorman, I have NF and I want to be on Deal or No Deal to raise money for NF so that I don’t have to go to the doctor anymore.” He is a joy, his smile is worth a billion dollars. :o)
    w/Love,
