"I am honored to be asked a part of this show. ArtistsLendSupport and the cause it represents is something I hold dear to my heart. In 1997 Kerry Greene (my father) lost his battle with the terrible disease ALS. He dealt with his illness with such courage and grace while he was on this earth. His compassion, humor, and brilliance will forever hold my greatest respect and admiration. This show grants me the opportunity to give back for those that a battling this illness and to companies like ALSTDI researching for a cure. My heart truly goes out to those with ALS and their families. I only wish I can do more."
