After Ms Montgomery was dx the foundation was called for information. She and her office wants her condition to stay a private matter. The foundation supports her wishes. It was in the press that she is home. I know she is improving daily.

I too have tried for years to get something published. It has been very difficult. After Ms Montgomery was dx all the papers in OHIO that turned me down contacted me for an interview or information. I referred them to the office and Barbara. The Beacon Journal wanted a story about me and since it’s my local paper I agreed. I don’t believe in self promoting but this was important.

Many of these reporters researched GBS and had the facts right. Now that they have written about it they are interested in keeping in touch and doing follow up articles.

It has been a very busy few months. Thank you to Erin Tully our Columbus liaison. She was on top of the story from the beginning. She was interviewed by the papers and on radio. Erin took the opportunity and ran with it. The hospitals who didn’t give her any time now opened their doors to her. She has logged many hours dropping off materials and setting up appts. for in-services.

I encourage all to get our information posted in as many laces as we can. We are all in this together.
