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

Reggie’s Ad in This Week’s TIME Magazine

This ad is the one that ran!                                   We decided to run this ad later.

Reggie felt that maybe people might be shocked by his actual photo in the ad so he requested that we change the ad to the visual on his shirt. What do you think? If you were a reader of TIME magazine and turned the page to see a visual of a man with a disfigurement, would you be repulsed or filled with compassion? Be honest.

  1. I would like to add also, I’m sure the photo will catch anyone by surprise that may not expect seeing someone with NF. Solution, Awareness, print ads TV spots. Talk about it more then ever. Just my thought. If anyone see the add please post here.

  5. I think it’s hard to say for those of us that read the blog. Since we know Reggie’s spirit and appreciate his smile, the picture doesn’t shock us. I would like to see succesive ads, first the logo ad and then, a few pages later, Reggie’s smiling face.

  6. Since I have NF, and my mother has NF it would be hard for me to say and it would be hard for me to ask my frineds cause they would kick someone’s a$$ for ever making fun of anyone with NF,
    To answer your question, no matter where you go, there will always be a butthead that will not be nice but I believe that there is a lot of nice ppl out there that will be open minded and listen or read. We just need to ignore the ignorarant(spl) and help educate the ones that are willing to learn.

  12. Think about the ad the same way you do about public appearances. Not everyone you walk past at a festival is prepared, just like your casual reader. It’s the unexpectedness (did I make that word up) that inspires people to “Just Ask.” And to want to learn more.

    It’s the fact that Reggie is willing to put his own feelings at risk and himself out in public that inspires understanding and compassion, along with inspiring other NF-ers to get out of their homes and into the light.

    And honestly, if I didn’t know Reggie and saw the ad with his actual picture, I would feel compassion and want to know more. The illustration works well, but I think the actual photo has more stopping power.

    But then again, I’m an ad guy… so what do I know!

  13. Hey Reggie… when is your trip overseas?

    Comment by Matt | April 30, 2008 | Reply

  14. Matt I’m happy you ask. Well for one thing, it is hard for me to change how I feel. And I know all of us that have nf feel this way. But when I go out, I do feel a little nervous. So if you have nf and feel that way, then it’s ok. After I get out in the crowds and just get use to the water it gets quite comfortable. If I jump out of the water before I get use to it I would never know know how great things can be. I am putting my head on the block and things don’t always happen the way I want, but that is just the way it is. I have more people to say kind things then bad. I have the right to go anyplace I want that I pay for. If someone can’t stand to look at me, then guess who’s problem it is? Not mine. I’m having my fun.

    Matt, good insight and well said. Let me give you another perspective to think about. What if you were the publisher of TIME magazine. Would you have a different POV on the ad? Would you be concerned about shocking your readers when they turn the page? I’m really straddling the fence on this one. From Reggie’s POV, I say run the photo ad. From a mainstream media POV, I would be hesitant to run the photo ad. Well, at least, at first.

    What does everybody else think?

    Patricia, do you think people are buttheads because they are basically mean or are they buttheads because they are ignorant and don’t know better? Do you think maybe they are afraid of what they don’t know and understand? Perhaps with education and awareness, they could change their attitude from perceived meaness to acceptance?

  25. #20. I can see where MAYBE a publisher might balk, but I say send it anyway. Let them decide. Even push back a little for what you think makes the stronger ad if they are hesitant. The worst thing that can happen is that they say no (and if anyone is used to hearing “no” it’s Lou… cheap shot, but couldn’t resist). In that case, just run the caricature ad.

    I’ve seen way more shocking pictures in both Time and Newsweek that don’t have NEARLY the amazing, positive message of hope and education that Reggie brings to the table.

  31. You are right Matt. What makes the story so amazing is to see how I use to be. Shy and afraid that someone may not like me. Now are times I feel so WHAT! It is not a sad story. Just look at the record. I’m enjoying life and I want people to see I’m happy and most people are more accepting and make things easy. There are some bumps in the road, but the good over takes them. Anyone else that has the disorder can enjoy also. When you have friends like we have on the blog, you can’t help but enjoy life.

  36. Having NF and knowing Reggie since the early 90s, it would not shock me. If I did not have NF or know Reggie, I might be. I think on later ads, maybe show some photos of other people, children, that is not so noticeable, showing the lighter side of NF, and maybe various other stages of NF. I have taken many photos of children and adults with NF at out family camp and other events. Maybe it can me a theme for the next camp “Just Ask” if it has not been decided.

  53. #21 Sorry it has taken me so long been one heck of a day, for the most part I think ppl ignorant and just don’t know better, however there are mean ppl and no matter what we say or do they won’t change. they are just mean and that is all there is to it. And you got ppl that are scared and don’t know what NF is, they think well maybe it is contagious, or what ever, My mother married a man who also has NF, they both went into the SS office and was asked by a worker, “Are yall contagious?”, She was speaking out of ignorance, which is really sad, since NF really affacts so many ppl But there are times that I myself act like a butthead to ppl’s reaction, cause I am exausted from constantly having to explain to what I think should be common knowledge to even ppl in the medical feild.

If I can see that someone is listing I will talk, but if someone is just being as jerk I just leave it a lone. Example Someone I thought was being nice ask a few questions. What happen to your face. What a dumb way to ask. So I explained. Then I was ask, Do you have 3 eyes? After that I knew she wasn’t wanting to understand. I told her Why would you saw something like that? You know I don’t have 3 eyes. I almost said yes, I have 3 eyes. She wrote back and said I’m sorry. When I replied to her saying saying it was ok, She wrote back and said Well do you? it looks like you do.

She is truely an insperation. The good ppl will tell me I never see the bumps on your mother, she is a beautiful person, the mean ugly ppl tell me why does she not go get them taken off, My mother also tells me one day when we go to heaven we will have perfect bodies, and we won’t have this disease and I won’t talk funny anymore, ppl will be able to understand and I won’t have to repeat myself over and over again. She is a very amazing person.

  80. Hello Everyone,
    I saw this yesterday and wanted to respond, but a close family friend had a medical emergency, so here I am a day late and a dollar short.

    I wanted to say … maybe it’s time that people SHOULD be shocked. NF 1 and 2 are so little known yet are more common than Musculo-Dystrophy and Cystic Fibrosis combined. They get the “press” and that’s why the powers that be take action.

    If Reggie is brave enough to put himself out there, then I say TIME magazine readers SHOULD see!! I think curiosity as much as anything will take over and people will read. And your mission of awareness will be accomplished.

    You know I was sitting in the optician’s with Victoria this afternoon and an older lady struck up a conversation with me … after a couple of prying questions, which I answered only briefly … she turned and said ou loud “she’s handicapped isn’t she??” I was so disgusted (I totally ignored the question) and so glad that Victoria didn’t hear her. My 7 yr old son did though and was very upset with the lady saying “how rude”.

    Reggie, people like you are changing the world and the future for children like my Victoria and I applaud you.

When I 1st see the drawing it just makes me picture the elephant man in my head. And that’s not at all who you are – you are full of hope and happiness!! and that shows through in the real photo of yourself!

  108. Susan,
    The three magazines are giving the full page ads, and they were a little concerned about what photo to use. They ask if we could use another version of my photo. So we gave them the true drawing of my face. The ad will tell the story and people will know That the drawing is a man that happens to have Neurofibromatosis.

  110. Hey Reggie, ever hear from the Neville brother that you gave your card to? If not, I’d like to get Lou (or you) to get nice prints made of the photos so that we can send them and see if we can get them autographed. Maybe multiple copies, as Reggie suggested, to use as auction items.

    Here’s my suggested approach::

    I think it would be so cool to send THEM each a copy of the picture with YOUR autograph, asking that they sign copies and return them for use as auction items.

    Thoughts anyone?

  111. Matt terrific idea. I will get the photo paper today. what size should I get.

  112. Oh Matt, to answer your question. I haven’t from the Neville brothers.

  113. I would do them as 8x10s. Are you planning on printing them off of a home printer? If so, you may want to consider having them done professionally. Laser or inkjet photo prints look great at first, but fade over time. You need prints that will live forever if we are getting autographs and such.

    Ask Lou about it. If he doesn’t know for sure, someone at his office will.

    Heard from him lately? I didn’t go to PJs last night, so I didn’t see him.

  114. I’m glad you told me about the photo.I will ask Lou. I didn’t that about printing photos at home. I have a brothers printer MFC-465CN. I’m sure Lou can tell me.

    Yea I heard from Lou. He is really busy today. He will probably write later.

  115. Cool. I figure if you are thinking of auction items, we should get some nice prints done that won’t fade over time.

  116. Matt Lou is going to take care of the printing. I think we are on to something.

  120. Yea I’m tired as well. after going to bed around 2:00am and getting up at 6:30am is not very much sleep.

  121. True Reggie I think you need to cut back on your espresso you drink it to late in the day and it just keeps you up I think you ought to hit the hay early today also and catch up on your sleep

  122. Great news on the photos. I have both calls/emails in to the management company for the Nevilles and will let you know the minute I hear anything. I still say we should send each of them a copy with your autograph.

    Think we can put that together by early next week? Maybe the combo of getting pictures and getting calls and emails will bring it to their attention.

  123. Let’s do it. I will talk to Lou this weekend and I’m sure we can get that taken care of. What do you think Lou?

  130. Are you on your Blackberry outside in the bushes right now?

    About to head to John’s house and maybe play a little music.

    Will see William there, so maybe we’ll log on from there and harass you further.

  131. If we don’t see you all later, have a great night everyone!

    Comment by Matt | May 2, 2008 | Reply

  132. Matt say hello to John and William for me. I may be here later. I will listen for any messages. I think I will read and that will help me to relax. Or I could read some of the stuff that Lou wrote. That will put me to sleep.

  133. Hey Reggie, I’m up a little late. Probably going to ht the hay after this. Played some great music tonight. We’ll have to get together and do it again soon.

    Have a great night!

  134. Hey Matt, That sounds good to me. We will have to do that. I love music. Just wish I could play something. There are a lot of ideas floating around in my head, and I know that may scare some people, but it has to do with music playing,and awareness which is part of my campaign.

  135. Music is all about making noise and I KNOW you can do that. We can give you a drum to pound on, anything just to take part and have fun. Be sure to ask William about his autoharp. That’s an instrument you might be able to pick up real quick.

  136. Great! I think we are suppose to meet up today. I would love the learn that.

    Comment by Reggie Bibbs | May 3, 2008 | Reply

  137. Hopefully he will bring it. You should email him and remind him to bring it. I know it needs to be tuned and is a real pain to do, so he may not have done that yet.

    Hopefully, I will catch up with you guys later.

  147. Reggie,
    I must say how blown away I am by your courage in talking about NF. I was reading my Newsweek magazine last night in the tub and was immediately drawn to your ad! I thought it was so cool to have someone in Houston featured in the magazine, but even more so once I read about you and your desire to inform people about NF with your t-shirts. I feel like this campaign must be so empowering for you and you can bet I’ll be a proud wearer of the shirt I just bought! If you are ever around the Spring area, please know you’ll have another “friend” here waiting to shake your hand and tell you way to go! 🙂
    Keep up the good work and best of luck in all you are doing to spread the word about NF!
