Fibromyalgia Segment to Air this Saturday

 

Fibromyalgia and the National Fibromyalgia Association are the focus of a new 5-minute segment on the national television series “Today’s Family.” The segment, which is a part of the Touching Hearts and Changing Lives Series, will air nationally on Oxygen TV and ABC Family Channel, and on several regional news networks. So far, the show has aired multiple times in Washington D.C., Portland, Oregon and Boston, Massachusetts. This Saturday, September 13, 2008, the segment airs nationally on Oxygen.
 
The program will educate viewers on fibromyalgia and how the National Fibromyalgia Association (NFA) is working to help individuals who suffer from this painful, life-altering disorder. The segment features Lynne Matallana, president and founder of the NFA, who saw 37 doctors before being diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 1995, and Dr. Patrick Wood, a respected authority on the cause and treatment of fibromyalgia who has been recognized by the National Institutes of Health for his innovative research.
 
“We are pleased to have been spotlighted in this documentary that will reach millions of viewers nationwide,” says Matallana. “The segment is an excellent avenue to bring hope to people who suffer from fibromyalgia and to educate the general public about this complex disorder.”
 
Airtimes are:

  • 6 a.m. Eastern Time and Pacific Time
  • 5 a.m. Central Time
  • 4 a.m. Mountain Time

We hope you will record the show or tune it!

I was sent an email about this today and although I am very happy that fibro is making national tv I am disappointed in the airing time. How many people are going to see it in the early morning hours of Saturday. I know that I'm being negative with such a positive thing but what is it going to take for the public to take us seriously. Then again, any person that it informs is one more person that is aware of what we are going through. Emotions are so up and down today!

I personally won't be able to watch it because 6:00 on a Saturday will not happen and my VCR is not working. For those of you able to watch it please let us know what we miss.

Thanks, Meggie
