Great day in DC















What a great day. I met with Dean Kamen and we discussed our game plan for getting the iBOT wheelchair made again. We know that we are both totally committed to making sure our government understand how the iBOT changes peoples lives who use the chair and the people around them.

We headed over to The GI Film Festival (which is taking place this week)reception at the Rusell Senate Caucus Room. Gary Lawson from The Huey 091 Foundation which buys iBOT's and gives them out to soldiers who return from war addressed the room to discuss the iBOT and how we need to get these chairs rolling again. After that Dean Kamen spoke about his commitment to helping our troops that come home in need of wheelchairs and in need of new arms (the Deka Arm) which is like no other. Dean said "He would never stop creating devices to better individual's lives".

Here are some pictures from the reception. Kelsey Grammer, Senator John McCain, Leeann Tweeden, Dean Kamen and oters were on hand. Big day tomorrow with a visit to the Walter Reed Hostital and then a Press Conference at The Nation Press Club.

That's awesome Alan! Thank you so much for all you are doing.

Man, I wish I could have been there. I think it would be fabulous if a bunch of us with iBOTs could all get together.
