Internationally known Forensic Anthropologist and Writer Kathy Reichs joined Writer and Producer, Michael Peterson, for a visit to New Bern, NC, to raise awareness for New Bern Cares to Cure Neurofibromatosis (NF)!
Since meeting Michael’s parents, Carolyn and Charles Peterson, last year and learning about their granddaughter, Natalie’s struggle with Neurofibromatosis, we’ve been on a personal campaign to spread their message! Their cause is New Bern Cares to Cure Neurofibromatosis!
We enjoyed meeting their son, Michael Peterson, along with his energetic wife, Kelly, and their beautiful daughter, Natalie! We’ve only seen a couple of pictures of Natalie when she was younger and immobilized by NF. It was refreshing to see that she was full of energy and wasn’t letting her disorder influence her childhood enthusiasm!
We joined Bones fans at Christ Church Ministry Center to learn more about this critical disorder that inflicts 1 out of 3,000 people each year and to find out more about the characters, plot, and interesting situations of the TV Series Bones.
If you didn’t already know, the TV series Bones is based on Kathy Reichs books. I’ve been reading Kathy’s books for 10+ years and was excited to learn that scenes from her books were transformed into a television series. I don’t watch a lot of television, but I have to admit that I’ve never missed an episode of Bones!
We hope a lot of folks turned out for this weekend’s events as Michael and Kelly Peterson plan to match up to $20,000 raised during the New Bern Cares to Cure Neurofibromatosis!
