Ted and Mike are joined by Greg Grunberg, of Alias, Heroes, Lost, Star Trek, and Star Wars fame, to chat about golf, giving back, and the entire purpose behind this show. Greg is no stranger to raising awareness for important causes and his insights are invaluable. His suggestions & expertise are gratefully welcomed to help achieve the goals Ted and Mike have going into 2023.
Listen in as they chat about Greg’s luckiest moment in life, why it’s important that caretakers receive recognition as well, and his thoughts on ways to spread this message even further.
Greg has definitely had his share of luck in life, and his stories are incredible. Luck has often been described as when opportunity meets preparation, and Greg certainly represents that.
One of his absolutely luckiest moments in life happened the night he met his wife. He was out at a bar with a friend preparing to meet up with a couple of ladies who ended up standing them up. Then as luck would have it, across the bar, he saw the woman who was meant to be Mrs. Grunberg for the next 30 years!
But it all could have never happened had it not been for a single digit, one wrong number in a phone number, that would change Greg’s life forever.
They now have three adult sons, one of whom lives with epilepsy. Greg is now bringing awareness, not only to the epilepsy community as a whole, but also to those wonderful souls who take care of their loved ones who are living with chronic or life altering diseases, God bless the care givers!
Greg is a wonderful human being whom Ted is grateful to call a friend and someone who has been in his corner for many, many years. Greg has some amazing stories to share, a lot of wisdom and sage advice to impart, and Ted couldn’t be happier that he’s willing to help bring awareness to the GBS|CIDP Foundation International.
Listen in to hear their entire conversation and have fun listening to all of his amazing stories.
