Blast From the Past
When researchers identified the gene responsible for Duchenne's in 1985, NBC 10 medical reporter Cherie Bank interviewed yours truly, then 7 1/2 years old and with missing teeth! I was filmed walking (with difficulty) down the stairs and playing the piano with delight, as Ms. Bank looked on.
Fast-forward more than 20 years and guess who came to interview me about my life -- and my book? None other than Cherie Bank (pictured above)!
With my piano-playing days long over (trust me, I was no virtuoso), I instead showed off my voice-activated computer and read aloud a segment of my book. Though not nearly as cute as I was back in '85, I still have the same smile and I'm just as talkative!
I'm not sure when the interview will air, but as soon as I know, I will post an announcement here. So please, stay tuned to Winheld's World...
