A little over a week ago I announced that we were talking to a celebrity about having him come on board to support getting the message of our film “Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days” out to the public. I thought I’d let you know who he is since he announced it on the green carpet of the “Avatar Home Tree Event” on Earth Day!
So the celebrity who is now supporting our team is four time NBA champion, talk show host and vegan John Salley.
John was recently on the Dr. Oz show, “The Doctors” show, the Rachel Ray show and the Brian McKnight show. He was also the host of “The Best Damn Sports Show” for six years. He’s also been in movies such as “Bad Boys”, “Bad Boys II”, “Confessions of a Shopaholic” and “Mr. 3000″… just to name a few.
I met with John when he was in New York City a couple weeks ago and I saw right away that he is an amazing guy with a lot of passion. He really wants to help people get healthy! His own father had diabetes and he watched as a child as he suffered with the disease.
One of the producers of the film, Michael Bedar, gave him a copy of the film about a month ago and as John told me when I met him “It instantly got his attention.” He told me he watched it as soon as he got back to his hotel room that night and that his first reaction was that he loved it and knew he had to be a part of getting it out to the public.
So I’m happy to announce that John will now be supporting the “Simply Raw” team! I’m posting several videos about John and his TV and movie appearances in case you don’t know him and everything he has done in his amazing career both on and off the court.
If you have any comments for John please feel free to write them below as I’m sure he’d love to read them!
