I'm the tallest member of Tall Clubs International (see tall.org) and currently President of the Tall Club of Milwaukee and Tall Club International's Liaison to the National Marfan Foundation (see marfan.org)
Hello Dave - I just joined and wanted to say hello! Will you be in Portland this year? I think my entire family will be going. My younger son, Kevin, is actually filming a personal documentary about his experience with Marfans. See you there - Paul
Thank you for all you do for tall people everywhere, especially with the NMF! My 16 year old son is 6' 10" and is trying to deal with the staring and OMG comments. A trip to Wal-Mart yesterday didn't help matters. One of the workers wanted his autograph (in case he became a famous basketball player) and others were trying to guess how tall he was and calling to others to check out the "tall kid." We won't be going to Portland for the NMF convention, but looking forward to when it comes to Chicago. Thank you for being a tall advocate! I'm hoping my son will appreciate his height some day.
Welcome to The Tall Street Journal Dave. Glad to hear you at least got the large chocolate cake bite on the show. I had tickets and it would have been great to meet you, but unfortunately weather didn't let me get into town for the show.
We do have a group on here for Marfan as I think its important for tall people to know about, and sadly many do not. All I hear about marfan.org is what a wonderful organization that it continues to be. http://www.thetallstreetjournal.com/group/marfan
