Default Discovery Show...Geoff Ritchie

If you have any comments or questions on the show last night, let me know. Geoff's father has asked me to forward him any feedback.

Dear Geoff and Mr. Ritchie
I watched the show last night from 11pm to 2am. I am 34 and have a port wine stain that covers nearly all of the left side of my face. I related with Geoff in so many ways, I cried alot. It is evident to me that Geoff is an amazing person, I nearly wanted to book a flight to meet him in person. I am a writer and am working on books for children and parents who walk in our shoes. I pray Geoff stays inspired. Much love, Sue

The show was amazing. I was so touched.
It was so nice to see what a caring and wonderful strong family that you have.
As a mom of a baby with a PWS, I can only say that I hope that my daughter grows up and has an ounce of your determination, courage and attitude. Your entire family is truly an inspiration to us all. I know they say that strength comes from within but after watching the show, I truly know what strength is.....

I just wanted everybody, that watched the show, that Geoff is one of the most bravest men out there.

I have never in my life ever cried as hard as I did watching that program. It brought back so many memorys, only people that have had the sugury themselves would know what I am talking about. Also, when they talked with his sister probably was the part I cried the most because growing up my older sister did the exact samething.

Corinne,
I have already email Betty and Geoff so you do not need to forward this message to them.

Thanks

Hank

Unfortunetly I missed the show I feel so bad... Before I got here to this forum I never though about my birth mark as something that could influence my life, now I do. I read other stories, and they catch my heart, because I relate to them so much.
Too bad it took me so long to find people like me
