Post LBD awareness week
I received an email tonight about LBD being recognized on two morning TV shows. Monday 11th, 7-9 on The early Show, CBS, will talk about Lewy Body Disease, and Awareness Week.
On Tuesday 12th, 7-9 on the Today Show, NBC, Al Roker will be talking to families with LBD. These are eastern standard times, hope everyone is able to get this.

I think less than ten seconds, actually. Maybe NBC will give it more time.

Let's hope NBC and Al Roaker will give it a little more time tomorrow on the Today Show.

Thank you Angela Taylor!!

It would really be nice if LBD could get 1/10 of the daily coverage of Lindsay Lohan being in rehab, or Paris Hilton being in jail, or whatever. These morning shows have more and more trash on them and it would be great if they'd replace some of that junk with something that is actually important. I'm hoping, but not holding my breath, that the Today Show will do more than the Early Show did.
