I was so thrilled to get an email on Monday, from my high school friend, Freddy Sanchez. I asked him if I could share it with all of you, to which he graciously agreed. It is relating to his brother FABIAN SANCHEZ (remember the name)who will be DANCING WITH THE STARS beginning on March 17, ABC at 7PM CST.
I am just so stoked!! And was thrilled to hear from my classmate & friend, Freddy.
F- Hello Leigh, I was just surfing the internet for articles on my little brother and happened to see yours, you’re hilarious!. I had a big smile on my face while reading your story. It’s nice to know that other people will be watching the show and voting for their home town friend. I will let Fabian know that he’s got another fan rooting for him in Helena. I actually talk with him just about every day, he’s doing great and Marlee is doing awesome, they’re both working really hard. I saw the pictures you had of Fabian on your page, and since those are a bit old I’m going to give you a very recent picture of him ( this one was actually taken for the show).
Take care and tell "Big Daddy" I said hello.
See you around.
I was so glad to have gotten this email on Monday because I was so happy to hear from Freddy! It completely took my mind off of the impending surgery-for a while anyway. I was also so thrilled to hear that Fabian is already dancing up some dust with Marlee Matlin.I had a question about that , dancing with Matlin and I asked Freddy,
L-"Years ago I was working towards a degree in educational interpretation. I was almost complete,but was sidelined when I had children and never went back. I am mind boggled to how Fabian will teach Marlee dance steps without her hearing the music. I assume Marlee will rely on counting? Fabian must be a VERY VERY good, teacher!
Obviously, look where he is!!
F-Marlee is actually using some special hearing aids that help her hear the high and low frequencies in the music. Fabian has been using music in their routines and says that Marlee is kicking butt. I have a feeling that they are going to blow people’s minds come March 17th, I can’t wait.
L- ME EITHER FREDDY, in case you didn't know. I AM beside myself. It's like a kid waiting for Christmas morning. It seems forever away!
F-By the way, I talked with Fabian yesterday and told him about your weekly post and he was very excited, he said “make sure you tell Leigh I said hello and thank her for me”, so there you go. He said that whenever he gets the ok to start talking to the media you will probably hear from him.
How gracious is that!?! I can honestly say, no one deserve to win more than Fabian. He is a master dancer, well trained, a seasoned dancer/performer. But aside from that, he is still the same ole Fabian from high school, as is his brother Freddy. Down to Earth, humble yet passionate about life.
So, consider yourself warned
Be sure to batten down for the next several weeks to come, for my weekly dialog about the show, and my relentless campaigning to have you ALL call in weekly to keep Fabian and Marlee kicking it up on the show.
Remember the face-it'll be smiling.
And Remember the behind-it'll be shaking.
VOTE FOR FABIAN!
Vote for Fabian and Marlee!
Maybe, just maybe he'll check into ye ole blog in his spare time (LOL). I would love for him to see the support he has. Some be sure to COMMENT, COMMENT,COMMENT and wish him well!
