Hope With A Vizion

Immediate Release – Bowlegged Lou Remains Optimistic After RP Diagnosis At His Surprise Birthday Party in NY.


NEW YORK, NY, June 24, 2017 – The anticipated launch of Hope With a Vizion, a new initiative that brings the visually impaired together with resources, support and research, was announced at the surprise birthday party of Founder, Lucien “Bowlegged Lou” George.

As almost 200 special guests along with a few celebrity guests including actress, Vivica A. Fox awaited Bowlegged Lou’s arrival, an announcement was made that would be a surprise to almost everyone there. While Lady J emceed the party, DJ Wiz (Kid N Play) paused the music and guests were informed, for the first time, that Bowlegged Lou had been diagnosed several years before (October 17, 2012) with Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP), an inherited, degenerative eye disease that eventually causes blindness. They also learned that because of his eye disease, he started the nonprofit, Hope With a Vizion, to both directly and indirectly help an entire community of individuals that have gone through or are going through losing their sight, not just because of the physical component of vision loss but the psychological elements that impact individuals as well.

Despite those scenarios, Lou does not own up to most ophthalmologist-naysayers when it comes to his diagnosis. He believes in God’s Miracles and positive prayers along with mind-over-matter and the famous quote, “It ain’t over till it’s over”.  That’s why Lou stays proactive with various supplements and vitamins for the eyes along with regular appointments to both medical and alternative doctors. He believes in clinical breakthroughs and alternative treatments because in his own words, “I want to see forever!”

Attendees of the birthday bash were able to get a preview the of the new website at and the Facebook page @hopevizion to gain an idea of how to support, volunteer and donate to the organization. Notables such as Blair Underwood, Shanice Wilson, Lisa Lisa, Treach, Jon B., Karyn White, Drs. Shaun Rivers & Kim Ketter, Cheryl “Pepsii” Riley, Regina Belle, Ray Chew, Big Daddy Kane, Biz Markie, Cool V, Anthony Anderson, and Malcolm-Jamal Warner. Not to mention, Lou’s beloved brothers, Paul Anthony and B-Fine of Full Force. All showed love and support for Bowlegged Lou during the celebration. The Hope With a Vizion team, Regina Hall (President), Charmin Anderson (Vice President), Charlene Curry (Treasurer), Katrina Dawson (Secretary), and LaDonna Raeh (Publicist) were all representing the all new nonprofit. Needless to say, many advocates were birthed from this wrap-around event that brought together industry leaders, friends and family. This night of great spirits, good food and an awesome celebration resulted in Bowlegged Lou being very surprised and grateful for his circle of supporters.

What’s that for?” was excited to enlighten him with a significant and very special tidbit of black history. It’s been 5 years since the multi-platinum-selling singer/songwriter/producer was first interviewed by our site, which was February 18, 2011. Since then, Lou has been a part of 11 additional articles. “Damn!” he exclaimed, laughing. Read More >>
