  • HCMA Hits Tv!

    Hello,
    Today I will be taping a 30 minute piece to air on Feb. 23rd 6:30-7pm on CN8 - "Real life with Mary Amoroso" The great news is you will ALL be able to see it on the CN8 website on www.cn8.tv - even better yet I will be joined on the program by my niece Stacey and Dr. Marty Maron of NEMC.

    We will be talking about HCM and the HCMA -the goal of this appearance is to get the word out about HCM and helping those with HCM find the HCMA!

    I will be leaving in a few minutes to head to the taping, but had to tell you all what is happening - -

    The producer of the show is good friends with a mom who lost here son to HCM last year, the show will be dedicated to his memory - Keith was 29 years old and a police officer in NJ. We thank Joanne for helping the HCMA get the word out about HCM and know that Keith will be with us today as we film this important program.

    Peace to all,

    Lisa

    Lisa Hi and great job! Finally you will have a bigger voice and reach a bigger audience to get the word out so others may get help. I looked at the pictures too ! They look great and I agree you look wonderfull! I am so excited to see the show and have it marked on all our calendars. I knew you would get a bigger forum . Next onto Oprah! The Today show etc etc ! I'll get Dr. Maron's autograph on the 24th when I see him, hee hee. He'll get a kick out of it if I tease him a bit . Again I am so pleased and hope you all remember us "little people" when you are big big celebs. Watch out Hollywood! Only kidding . Thankyou for all your efforts and Stacey too. Pam

              Hi Lisa,
              I don’t think I’ll be able to see the show – out here in the Las Vegas area, - but I did take a gander at the pictures. My, my, my. Who’s the prettiest girl on the set?

              Don’t blame you for going on TV.

                Please remember, even if you don't get Comcast, you can watch the show live on their website on February 23 at 6:30 p.m.

                  Hi Kelly,

                  You’re absolutely right, but that's three thirty my time. . . I don't think I can get home from the bridge game in time to see the show, and I can't record it. If I don't take my wife to bridge, she'll be very disappointed.

                  If somebody would be willing to tape the show, and send me the VCR, I'll not only return it to them, I'll even send back the money they paid for the postage. Is there a kind soul out there willing to do that for me?

                          If you can upload it great. If not, could I borrow the DVD? I can play that too.
                          Thanks,
