She's all over the place, but knowing our Christine, she won't become a diva. She indeed is one awesome lady, echoing those thoughts above. Keep up your good work, Christine!

Christine - You are one awesome, beautiful lady!!! Just went to the link Gabe posted and heard the cdc radio ads. They sure do get the point across and are so very well done that they really grab the attention of the listener. Without the distraction a video ad might present, the focus is on Christine's gentle voice and the actual sounds involved in tube feeding. The impact of what smoking can do to a person's life really hits home. You did good, Christine! So proud of you!

I'm still stalking around the forums in stealth mode.

Just have to say what a refreshing event it is to hang with Christine in 3D. No pretense. No whining. Just joy. Many of us have had the good fortune of being guided through the tunnels of this disease by her. I have the opportunity to call her friend, and the thrill of her living nearby. You are a Queen C))))))))
