Here is Tricia with Barbara Gibbs, a co-anchor for ABC 11 News in Raleigh/Durham.
Tricia and I just spent two hours with Barbara and her cameraman, "Lorenzo" (not his real name, but he wanted me to write about him as being "mysterious", and Tricia's nurse thinks Lorenzo is a mysterious name), giving an interview about our story. We think the interview went very well, and both Barbara and the mysterious Lorenzo were very nice and genuinely interested. Barbara had obviously spent some time reading the blog. Tricia wasn't able to talk, so I did the talking.
A friend of mine (who I hadn't talked to in several years) stumbled upon our blog the other day. Dana is a TV news producer in Washington DC, and she asked me if she could contact some people and see if anyone would want to pick up our story. Apparently, Dana's message made it's way to Barbara, who called me yesterday morning. Barbara contacted the people at Duke, who then contacted Tricia's primary CF doctor and the staff on 7800. They all gave their OK, thankfully.
They were unable to see Gwyneth, but I may be sending them some of our footage to use. Barbara isn't sure when it will air, but I'll be sure to let you know as soon as I find out. This is the same news station that showed 3 Seconds of Tricia back in December...
This was the most exciting thing we've done in a while (outside of spending time with Gwyneth).
Anyway, it's been a really fun day so far. Hopefully, the story will help to raise awareness for CF, Premature Birth and Organ Donation.
And, mad props to commenter, MichelleAnn for guessing what was going to happen.
