A NOTE FROM KEVIN NEALON.

3090342427_26cb9dd5b3_b3090342561_eb020396fa_bThis weekend I got the shock and surprise of my life! I was going through my emails looking for a phone number when I came across an unopened email dated November 14! It was from my new friend Kevin Nealon, from Saturday Night Live, who I had just met the night before.

I have no idea how I missed this very important email but I guess it was because I was traveling and wasn’t able to check email till I got back home. Anyway, here is the very nice email that Kevin wrote plus the photos he sent.

Hey Reggie,
So great meeting you last night, and your friends! I’m so
flattered that you guys came to my show. Oh, loved your website, too!!
Susan and I loved checking out each category. Great videos and pics,
great coverage on the news stations as well. We’re so impressed with
your courage and your raising awareness of NF. What a difference you
are making! Please keep us updated on the foundation.

Attached are a few pictures of me wearing your shirt. Btw, it
fits me like a glove. I have a new cause now. 🙂

Best wishes,
Kevin and Susan

Most of you have seen the photos from my trip to Manhattan Beach California, when I went to visit my friend, Scott. Well, on the visit, Scott suggested we go see Kevin Nealon at the Comedy club. That is where it all happened. After the show Kevin came over to meet me. It was there when I shared with Kevin and his Wife Susan about NF. What a nice couple they both are. So kind and understanding to NF, and the JUST ASK campaign. I’m proud that Kevin is wearing one of my JUST ASK! T-shirts. You never know where you may see one next. Thank you Kevin and Susan for your support. Hope to see you soon.

The Lowes have been with the foundation since the very beginning and have been raising funds through a weekly bingo session since 1988. Their devotion and contributions are more than appreciated, they are our inspiration and the backbone of this foundation.

MY SECOND ASTROS GAME.

copy-of-copy-of-p1010037-1.jpg

Today was my second Astros game. Before the game, my friend Lee told me, “You have to have a Astros shirt.” So went to one of the local stores and Lee said pick the one you want. This is a cool shirt. That was the first thing we did. The high before the game was the food. I had the best Chile cheese hot bog ever, and a nice cold Coke to wash it down. mmmmm! By the way this is my first Astros shirt. I send thanks to my friend Lee, who invited me to join him with his daughter Rebecca and her friend Blake. Both are very nice and they treated me very well. We enjoyed the game, even though our team did not win, we still support the Astros and I will be happy to see them anytime. Go ASTROS! You are winners in my eyes. Please view the pictures from the game and lets blog about it.

MEET A REAL HERO BRIAN CARR

brianreggie.jpg

Today I had a terrific afternoon. The Texas NF Foundation had its first picnic in Houston Herman Park. I’m so happy that my family and I had a great day in the park. I met a lot of new friends that have both NF1 AND NF2. I was blessed by each and everyone. Before today, I was not 100% sure if I would go to camp or not. Well I’m 100% sure now. I will be there. I think the new friends I met today was a big part of why I’m going. I found myself talking to other people about going. I think a lot of them learned of the camp today. All seem to want to attend. I would like to see a huge turn out. I will be taking lots of pictures. Be ready to smile.

By now we have seen my hero. Brian Carr. I met Brian and his Mom Virginia. Brian has NF2 and he agreed to have a picture with me. I so happy he did. Brian will visit my blog from time to time. Let’s show him how we do it here. SUPPORT ! I pray for the best for Brian and all of the other wonderful people I met today. Thank you Brian, and I hope to see you at camp. Think about it. You can find a few more photos from the picnic on my photo page. Cindy will have them as well. Thank you Cindy Susan, and the Texas NF Foundation for a terrific picnic.

Houston Roller Derby Stars at Tomball Event, Aug 3!

tomball.gifOne of the best sporting events in Houston, in my opinion, is the Houston Roller Derby at Verizon Theater. I have been at least three times, and all I have to say you must go if you haven’t been. If you think it’s all fake and everything is rehearsed, think again. These ladies are tough!!! And some of them are real mothers! (No joke intended.)

I have enjoyed every game. They really treat the fans like they are the stars. I’m building quite a collection of photos with a lot of the team members. I still haven’t taken photos of everyone yet. Luckily, all of the team members are very accessible before and after the matches to talk, sign autographs, take photos and hang with audience members.

Hope to see you at one of the bouts. I know I will be attending as many bouts as possible.

Their next match isn’t until the third Sunday in August at the Verizon Theater downtown but many Houston Roller Derby members will be at the 35th Annual Tomball Night
Celebration
in Tomball!

This would be a great opportunity to come meet and talk with your favorite Houston Roller Derby stars! I’m hoping to get a complete list of all planning to attend so as soon as I get that, I’ll post it here!

Here’s all the important details:

Date: Friday, August 3rd
Time: 5pm – ??
Cost: FREE- so come hang out!
Where: Bob’s Wild West
Address: 400 W. Main, Tomball

“Uncle John” Turner Dies

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Mark Murray
ph: (512) 587-6833
email: mmurray@kvue.com

“Uncle John” Turner
August 20, 1944 – July 26, 2007

Legendary Texas Blues Drummer Dies at 62

B.B King once exclaimed, “Man, I can set my watch to your time!”


Legendary Texas blues drummer “Uncle John” Turner died Thursday, July 26th, in Austin, Texas from complications related to hepatitis C. He was 62 years old.

Born in Port Arthur, Texas, Uncle John was a childhood friend and bandmate of legendary southeast Texas blues and rock guitarist, Johnny Winter. While playing drums with Winter in 1968, Turner convinced him to try a full-blown blues band format and sent for his friend Tommy Shannon to play bass. Success quickly followed, and the trio went on to record what many consider to be three of Johnny Winter’s finest albums: “The Progressive Blues Experiment,” “Johnny Winter,” and “Second Winter.” With fourth member Edgar Winter, they played Woodstock in 1969, as well as numerous other festivals and shows around the world.

SHORTS IN HOUSTON

reggieshorts31.jpgI have a new tripod, so I took this photo of myself working at my computer. I know it looks like I posing for the photo. Well, you’re right. I’m wearing shorts around the house. I wish I had the guts to go someplace wearing shorts.

People always ask for my advice and how do I handle things. Now I ask you, do you have advice me for?

I’m not that strong, but any encouragement or advice you can give me, I’m all ears or leg. : > ) You know living in Houston, you have to wear shorts in order to keep cool.

The hole in the wall is repaired. I have a new desk, or work area. I have plenty of room which I did not have before. A lot has been done, and still more improvements are to come. Stay tuned for the finish project. This makes it a lot easer to do my web-site posting and flickr post.

Minerva Terrill, a board member of the Texas NF Foundation, presented a check for $90,000 to the hospital for NF research. This is something all of us who are affected with NF can be very excited about.

Great researchers and clinicians are out there looking for a cure and there are great people like Minerva and Cindy Hahn who are doing what they can to raise the funds needed to fund that research. We have a lot to look forward to. Stay tuned! I know more good news is ahead.

A bee product from New Zealand has been shown to suppress tumours in mice, says a study presented to a scientific conference in the United States.

A great group that was very interested in neurofibromatosis and my campaign. I was able to share what it’s like to live with nf , and how I deal with it. I learned a lot from the group as well as I hope they learned more about nf. I feel blessed that the group received my message. Meeting Net 2 was just what I needed. Maybe if I hang around the group, I can learn more tips about making the perfect site for neurofibromatosis.

MY MESSAGE

Most of you may know a little about me. My Name is Reggie Bibbs. I have a disorder

called Neurofibromatosis, or NF for short. This disorder causes disfigurement, pain,

blindness, hearing loss, learning disabilities, and yes, even death.

Not only that but most of us who suffer with this disorder have everyday trials that may seem easy for you, but is very hard for us. For instance, how many of you give it a second thought about going out to buy supplies for your computer? You may worry about what you will wear? But that’s probably it. Continue reading

On the rare occasions he’s not giggling or laughing, it’s apparent five-year-old Devon Payette’s speech is slightly garbled.

His bright red hair is shaved close to his skull, where he has a four-inch scar, and he stumbles slightly as he walks – possibly the result of being blind in one eye. Continue reading

NF obituary from today’s Bethel Beacon in Connecticut.

05/18/2007
Zowine’s accomplishments, not illness, recalled
By: B.J. O’Brien
(Reprinted from website of Bethel Beacon)

Henry Zowine, a lifelong Bethel resident, might have had a disability but he didn’t let that stop him from accomplishing a great deal in life.
Mr. Zowine, who suffered from neurofibromatosis, died Saturday at his home in the presence of his family. He was 45 years old (see obituary, Page 7).
Neurofibromatosis affects the brain, spinal cord, nerves and skin. Those affected by it get tumors on the nerves in their ears, which causes hearing loss and eventual deafness. They can also have problems with balance. The disease can also cause the loss of eyesight.
Neurofibromatosis is a genetic disease. Mr. Zowine’s son Zack, 16, also died from it a few months ago.
