Q107: Derringer In The Morning. March 13, 2003:

(A little story about how a little bit of positive self-advocacy can go a looong way...

After some misleading comments which were made about TS on March 12th were quickly corrected on-air, I emailed Derringer and Holloway to applaud their handling of the situation and to tell them a little about myself. Both replied positively, and both made further mention of TS on air on the 13th to detail individuals they themselves knew with TS. Derringer afterwards went on to agree to play Master of Ceremonies for an upcoming fundraising golf tournament for the Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada!
