Tune in to Montel

The Faces of MS is slated for airing Monday, August 7 on the Montel Williams Show. This TV show is syndicated. Be sure to check your local listings.

Emmy Award winner Montel Williams hosts a talk show with provocative topics aimed at helping real people with real problems. Diagnosed with MS in 1999, he has dedicated a full show to MS awareness every year since, and this year's awareness program is tomorrow.

In addition to his television work, Montel is active in the fight against the disease and the search for a cure. The Montel Williams MS Foundation provides financial assistance to organizations conducting research and educating the public. He even joined country singer Hal Ketchum and toured last summer to raise money for MS.

Williams was a much-honored US Naval Intelligence Officer, actor, author, motivational speaker and counselor. He is still active in speaking, acting, and advocacy through his TV show and beyond.

Montel turned 50 a month ago. The more I know about him, the more I like him. We both share a Naval Inteligence background. His stand on medical marijuana in the face of the drug war is heroic.
