I'm Still Freaking Out

October 11, 2012 - Update by: @NileRodgers
On my birthday a couple weeks ago I got the most amazing surprise. A whole slew of my friends got together and recorded something I'll never forget - a two hour plus video birthday card. I'd promised to post the whole thing but I got sick, then had to go away. I'm still sick but I'm back home. Here's The Entire Birthday Video.

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | FULL VIDEO

On my sixtieth birthday I was on a plane heading over to London, England. I was going to attend an old friend's wedding. Nobody could reach me in the air on my milestone birthday, so some of my closest friends embarked upon an epic undertaking.

They sent Happy Birthday from around the world. This was not just from pop stars, but friends from all areas of my life - even twitter and facebook.

Film clips are still coming in and my crew has put together a feature length video. This blog typically talks about my daily adventures since being attacked by aggressive cancer about a year and a half ago - however, the love and positivity in my life flows in both directions and I'd like to share some of it.

Hopefully, I won't have any health issues that override this series of snippets. I'll run as many as I can because they're heartwarming, funny, and entertaining. I'm truly thankful to all my friends and their pets. I'm Still Freaking Out.
