60 Minutes NEXT Weekend

Got this letter from my CURE subscription, thought I'd pass along.

Dear Kenneth,

We have some great news to share--on Sunday, October 25, 60 Minutes will feature an in-depth examination with Katie Couric of the problems and challenges of epilepsy. The segment will feature CURE and CURE founder, Susan Axelrod and her family.

CURE supporters around the country will be gathering at "viewing parties" for this program and we hope you'll join them by settling in front of your TV to watch. (If you'd like to host your own party, please call 800.765.7118.)

This is yet one more opportunity for all of us to raise awareness in this amazing year for epilepsy! Beginning with PARADE Magazine in February, we've enjoyed tremendous exposure in Newsweek and on CNN, MSNBC, the TODAY Show and Oprah's Dr. Oz radio show.

It's clear that momentum is on our side...this is our time to change the playing field and finally begin to make the difference we've been waiting for, for far too long.

Please help spread the word about 60 Minutes and make sure the voices of the over three million Americans suffering from epilepsy are heard loud and clear.

Warm Regards,


Set your DVR's or block out some time. Probably won't cover Infantile Spasms per se, but one never knows.



  1. This is some good news....

    Hope they do the subject justice....

    And the more PERSONAL stories they depict, the better....Ya know?

    I will DEFINITELY spread the word...

    Thanks so much....


    Hubby says we should ask Oprah to do a show on Infantile Spasms and children with hard to controll seizures...$$$ eh??

  3. I'm in - how was CC?

  4. Wanna come hang with us and have an inpatient viewing party? :)

    Been thinking about you guys...I know you've had a busy week.


  5. If you don't mind, I'd like to post on my blog to help get word out about it.

    Hope all went well at CC.

  6. Thanks, Ken. I'm in too. I never can catch these things in time. I hope you don't mind if I copy and paste this to my blog.

  7. Copy and paste away, to anyone, anytime. No sweat.

  8. Oh...and don't forget to set your DVR for an hour after too. Just in case a game runs late. They do play football on Sundays right? I'm a guuuurl...I'm just guessin' here...
