Produced by the storytelling organization, I Am Second, “Mike and Carrie: God & Country” features the couple speaking frankly about their personal journeys behind-the-scenes and the common thread that strengthens their marriage despite their individual differences.

“Our faith gives us a center ground,” said Fisher in Episode 1 titled “I Cry Easy.”

Telethon raises more than $500,000 at the Center of Family Love

OKARCHE – The Center of Family Love (CFL), a residential and vocational nonprofit for people with intellectual and physical disabilities, raised more than $500,000 on June 20, with their Live Stream Telethon event. The event replaced the organization’s seventh annual Gift of Love Gala, which has raised more than $1 million each of the past two years.

CFL resident Patti C. made history as the first intellectually disabled person to co-host an event of such magnitude for the organization. Patti C. has expressed her excitement at having had the opportunity to represent her friends at the center and share her gifts with the world as she worked alongside Malcom Tubbs, OKC Thunder Emcee, Fox 25 News Feature Reporter and OU Football On-Field Host.

“I feel pretty proud to have hosted,” said Patti C. “I know God put me at the center because he wants me to help others. Some of my friends can’t speak, and I get to speak for them. As a host, I got to tell everyone that my friends just want to be treated like somebody. This is a good place to live because they treat everyone with respect.”

All proceeds from the event help cover the organization’s yearly operational deficit of $1.7 million. CFL says these donations are especially important this year to cover the residents’ basic needs due to the impact COVID-19 has had on their typical fundraising appeals.
