Colorado and Company Show

Colorado And Company Show

I am so excited to share with you that Richard and I the Director of Foundation Fighting Blindness and his guide dog Parka where on the Colorado and Company show yesterday, Thursday March 19th. It was a great experience!
Mark the co-host and Tawnya really made the whole experience wonderful.
I was really nervous going to the studio of channel 9.
Richard and I arrived at the time that they had requested we went in and signed in. Patty one of the producers of the show came to greet us and explain the process she also was very nice
.
We went in to the studio and were able to greet Mark and Tawnya before the show and that it made it better for us. We also meet some other really great people that were also there to go on a segment. We watched as the show was being taped live.

It was our turn to go on!! I was not as nervous by the time we went on. I was glad we were able watch before going on. The hosts are fabulous!
Richard and I were able to share some facts about low vision, and some information on the Events coming up.
I also was able to mention about Preston’s eye disease and that I have written 3 children’s books and I am in the process of trying to get them published.
I love the non-profit that I volunteer for.
I also want to continue to bring awareness to Amblyopia. That is how our journey started.
