In South Florida I subscribe to Lisa & Laura's newsletter "Actor's Info Booth," and was saddened to hear this news about a lady I've always wanted to work with, but never got around to it....
Connie Zimet is the former SO. Fla. President of AFTRA and an extraordinary Voice Over artist and Coach.
I am sure most of you have heard by now that Connie Zimet is battling
late stage ALS. At this point she is no longer able to move or speak,
and requires 24 hour care.
Her son Zach has found a device that works with eye recognition
technology that will enable her to communicate with her eyes via aid
of a computer. To go through Medicare could take 6-8 months. She needs this device now.
It was brought to my attention that a lot of you out there would like
to help, so I am asking to please reach into your pockets and send any
donation you can spare to Connie, no matter how small, to help defer
her escalating medical care costs and enable her to speak again with
the help of this device. If you have any questions please feel free to
contact me, or Zach via email or by phone.
Connie’s address is 827 NW
79th Terrace, Plantation, FL 33324, and also has a Paypal account at
We appreciate anything you are able to do,
