Houston Roller Derby, Saltgrass Steak House and the Discovery Channel Rule!

Sunday, June 20th, 2010


Tonight was very special as the Discovery Channel was in town filming a documentary about Reggie. Thanks to our dear friends at Saltgrass Steak House, the Psych Ward Sirens and all of our friends at the Houston Roller Derby, for making this an evening Reggie will never forget!

Toni Niece, of Saltgrass Steak House, gave us permission to shoot some interviews at their restaurant on I-10 @ Campbell Road. Thank you, Toni, the restaurant was perfect, the food excellent and the staff incredible! Our waiter, Chris, was outstanding and took wonderful care of us. Also, thank you for the delicious appetizers! That was completely unnecessary but totally appreciated!

Saltgrass Steak House Rocks!


Reggie to Star in Documentary about Neurofibromatosis

Sunday, June 13th, 2010

A producer from a U.K. production company, Darlow Smithson, came to town today to begin shooting a documentary about neurofibromatosis. They will be taping Reggie for the next seven days in Houston and Salk Lake City, Utah, along with a fellow NF’er, Maurice. Today, they shot Reggie at home getting ready for his trip to Utah, i.e., ironing, packing, talking about the trip with his mother, Dorothy, and basically documenting a day in the life of Reggie, a guy with NF.

What a great night at the Roller Derby. Please meet my new friends in the photos above. The friends above made the night special f. I don’t remember the little girls name in the photo. She was specially nice, and caring. Seem to be concern about me. I hope she knows that because of her and her Dad and friends I had a terrific night. Thank you for asking about nf, and for taking a photo with me.

Of course it is always fun watching all the roller derby action. All of the teams are good at what they do, Roller Derby, a good place for anyone to go, and get treated as if, you of you are the champs. All the teams treat the fans as if we are playing. Hats off to all of the HRD for treating the so special.

Reggie Bibbs

Reggie Bibbs and the Just Ask! Foundation operate on a shoestring budget, as many non-profits do. We rely on the charity of others. Others who are moved by Reggie’s calling and touched by his courage.

But the “charity of others” doesn’t always mean cash donations. There are many ways you can help Reggie in his mission to spread awareness of NF and inspire others like himself to start living fuller, more rewarding lives.

To learn more about Reggie’s needs and how you can help, read this personal letter from Reggie.
