The Vittek Family on the 2009 MDA Jerry Lewis National Telethon

What the telethon means to me?

Lisa's Interview and Kayla's Story

Jeff's Interview and Kayla's Story

I have been promising to post the videos from our telethon appearances at the Las Vegas Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) National Telethon this summer and I finally received files that I can post. For those of you who didn't already know, Jeff, Kayla and I were asked to be one of the 4 families telling our story on the National telethon this year. Over the last 3 years we have been on our local broadcast of the telethon in Sacramento but this year we were able to tell our story nationally. It was such an incredible experience for all of us. We were able to meet all kinds of interesting people including Wynonna Judd, Jann Carl from Entertainment Tonight and our host, Nancy O'Dell from Access Hollywood. We also met Maureen McGovern, Ace Young, Bo Bice, The Fab Four, Brandon Barash from General Hospital, Five For Fighting, Richard Bowser (who was flirting with Kayla), Billy Gillman and many more. They were some of the most down to earth people I've ever met.
