I was watching this episode of Bones with a lot of anticipation. I kept waiting and waiting for mention of 'Neurofibromatosis' and it came in a way I didn't expect. I wasn't disappointed....But I wasn't overly thrilled either.
'NF' was portrayed as a sick persons disease, that "Anyone can get" (which if I didn't know anything about NF...I would think that I could not just "get"...but "catch").
It rubbed me wrong. It was like
clever not-so-clever product placement. It felt forced. It felt like the actors were just reading the back of some pamphlet.
While I am VERY HAPPY that Neurofibromatosis is getting some attention, I think we still have work to do.
And what was up with the whole keeping the secret of helping these "sick kids"...??
I get the idea of doing great things, without getting the attention for it....But, it just seemed like since we are getting NF OUT THERE and TALKED ABOUT....that we didn't need the Secret keeping story.
Anyways....That's MY 2-cents worth. Let me know what YOU thought!!
