I’m so busy placing editorial stories in newspapers, magazines, the Internet, TV and radio, I sometimes forget to check the results. It doesn’t happen often, but it does happen.
Such is the case with Kent Karosen, President and CEO of the Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation. I secured a PBS interview for him about his book last November and just remembered to watch it yesterday. Steve Adubato of PBS NY/NJ did the interview on his One-on-One show which discusses compelling, real life stories and features political leaders, CEOs, television personalities, professors, artists and educational innovators.
I was blown away. It was a very emotional interview with Kent. He talked about his horrific experiences with 9/11 and how close we are for a cure for Alzheimer’s.
Kent ‘s book, “Why Can’t Grandma Remember My Name?,” teaches youngsters about Alzheimer’s and how it impacts entire families.
Kent is also Senior Managing Director and Partner at Cantor Fitzgerald. He escaped being killed on 9/11 by just minutes. He was walking into the towers just as they were coming down. For the last 15 years he has totally devoted himself to helping others. Kent never fully recovered from this horrifying experience. His charitable work is what he lives for.
