Background:

My wife and a friend started a non profit organization to help families who have children born with Congenital Heart Defects. About once a year (usually the Saturday before Valentine's day) There is a get together at Children's Hospital where they invite children with heart defects, their parents, cardiologists surgeons and people associated with heart defects.

Today was the day for this function and lo and behold who is there? Discovery Channel/TLC doing a special to be aired in October. So they interview my wife and her friend on how they got together and organized this group.

As they were being interviewed, I am in the background with a dry erase board that is mounted to the wall. In HUGE letters I write "ARFCOM!"

Was that wrong?

On a serious note to the whole function, I think it is GREAT that this function is growing but it is sad that kids have these conditions. I was talking to one of the women there and she was asking me what is my daughter's condition and if she had surgery yet. When I told her what happened to my daughter. The cameras and boom mic turned to me... man I turned all shades of nervous... talk about ON THE SPOT.

Hey if it gets the word out... I am stoked!

Keep us up to date as to when this is going to air.

I'm trying to become an extra in some movie featuring military or something. Then I'll get an excuse to sew my SF patch onto the uniform they provide and display it on screen.

Glad to hear about the program Frige. Sounds like awesome (but sometimes heartbreaking) work.

Jeez no. I went far over board at Daytona last year!

I lied and told them ARFCOM was the "Armed Recon Force Command" so they'd let me carry the banner.

I hope you little stunt doesnt detract from the good of your cause.

If it gets aired


Link Posted: 2/4/2006 5:38:55 PM EDT
I am sure that the first thing the producers will do is search for what ARFCOM means.

Then it will get edited out of the show.

Just the Anti gun Media Holding us down.

Nah, nothing to be afraid to ask... YOU didnt do it

I call my daughter "My Ford with a Chevy engine... Not supposed to be that way but it works"

When she was born she was very small at full term she was only 5 pounds 4 ounces. At her 1 week appointment they heard a loud murmer.

Turns out she has:

Dextrocardia: Heart on the wrong side of her chest]
Transposition of the Great Arteries: Aorta and Pulmonary artery are reversed
Congenitally Corrected Transposition: The Ventricals are switched .. that was done by the grace of G-d when she was still inutero. If it didnt switch, we would have been in deep (*&%^
Ventricular Septal Defect: Hole in the ventricular wall
Pulmonary Stenosis: Pulmonary Artery is too small

However the pulmonary artery being small and the hole being the size that it is, there is a balance that lets everything move smoothly for now, so the lungs are protected.

As I said "Ford with a Chevy engine"
