Our guest this morning first stop is Billy humble winner a man with great here. In agreed organization make you really for joining us thank you for having me. So let's talk about steps of faith yeah and you are the man in charge over there now is this something that you created on your own hiker. And the not in my own America and the co-founder. And created. Co-founder with a gentleman named rob Pittman in Nashville Tennessee is where we started originally. Why. Inspired you to creates apps for so I met that guy rob Pittman because he owned the prosthetics shop where I was patient so. I have a robot leg yeah yeah yeah as I know that I I know I know yeah. In 2005 I lost my leg to cancer. Are you sarcoma yeah I was living here in Kansas City. And obviously it all worked out but yes so so that's how the whole thing really I really you know obviously how why I was inspired to be a part of this is. Is when I met rob buy say that he kind of tossed me the keys to a car that had no engine and it says here you can do with this and that we created it together. Let's let's talk about steps of faith so. I might have skipped ahead what is steps of faith says that faith is a 501 C three nonprofit charitable organization and what we do is we get prosthetics for entities. That have no health insurance or have no process that coverage with their health insurance I had health insurance and still had to raise a bunch of money. And Jason helps me do that and a lot of friends when Jason was just newly on SNL that was in 2006 so really. The seeds for steps of faith and definitely the seat for thunder concert back then so what. But but but that's a faith we we restore mobility for folks we get them back to work we get him back to playing with the kids back he's off Orleans god willing and and we restore possibilities. On average are prosthetics. The cheapest you're going to be looking at if you're paying out of pocket of really insurance would be 5000 well. The cheap absolutely that yeah for a prosthetic leg arms or is more expensive. We do more legs and arms that we do both. And so yeah and they can go like this thing eyewear is a 60000 dollar. Yen and minds above the mean and it's a microprocessor and on but it's not like. I can drive a Honda but I choose a Bentley they've already industry right now it's a different thing any there's there's a wide range of prosthetics. Prosthetic options because there's a wide range of people and pages earned weights and mobility that yes absolutely. So they're always expensive and it's one of those things that. If you plus still and that should be horrific enough fetus wanna know how you can just get back to being you know quote unquote normal with a new normal so the last thing you wanna be worried about his like okay cool insists astronomical amount of money that you'll never ever be able to it right. You hear an answer you know. And talk to me about the technology. How much has it changed hopefully improved. On since your awesome mowlam. Yes so so that was mine that was in 2005 so it has definitely improved that I have seen even since then. So I mean just a little thing for instance with my leg. You know it's got to microprocessor and so I can walk down steps like a lock down in clients you know quote unquote normally. And the leg that I originally had like couldn't really get wet you know. I was always like it was a raining and it was a summertime I wouldn't Wear shorts that kind of thing. And so the one I have now is just the new were version of that and can get wet. So now I need I eased and tight letter released have a recurring nightmares about like falling in a swimming pool. Home and then then you know it's like get all these friends there is always money from me and then what if this thing got ruined it right I don't regret that more thankfully did have a life and or anywhere for the rest your life although analyzed and that's pretty short so. Saying on hang on your phone ring and good morning the point are all right Jason IGCs in your friend Billy and I. And Taylor here we've just been talking mad about you so I'm glad you're here with the sound good to defend ourselves in the mud or or do you don't let you know later years you bet on. So and so real quick Billy finish up in the we'll talk to Jason. Yeah there there's definitely a life spanned 222. Prosthetic devices for sure so. To put it in perspective. One that Jason helped raise all the money for that was in 2006. I've. Had two since then. Okay my and so on those are all really expense forcing my insurance is paid for the other two in this like the one I'm wearing now is just under a year old you know. So yeah you know and I'm not growing you know so it's it's kids they're sorry like that it's a whole other thing and so. Yet it is Wear out you know I mean it's not something that lasts forever oh wherever it is on the quality Specter you know. And I got to imagine you have to have pretty good insurance for them they give you a quality. Prospect Brent which is probably rare. Yeah I mean a lot of people do and a lot of people don't mean and in this thing is it's like it's more common you know people losing limits this was a staggering statistic when I learned it but it's a 100% true. 500 people a day lose a limb.

Jason I met in 1995. At comedy sports which is in prop comedy club is in the river market it's now called comedy city right by the attempt either. Appropriately enough yeah yeah we haven't I was a senior in high school while addition using year old with a Meehan we ended up in the same workshop training class. Mazie got a lot of dirt on them.

Let me ask you one thing before we let you go ask Jason the same thing I'm obsessed with people and goals and how they achieve them. You obviously overcame cancer. Ray and you have now created this amazing event. In part with the team I guess on talk to me about your mindset. When it comes to goals and if somebody's just beginning on a road to a goal what would you tell. Cash. You know a dream big you know. A dream big. That's really the thing I just I kind of like I grew up in a creative environment I was just drawn to those things in my parents just relax cool you wanna play the saxophone. Great here's a clarinet. You wanna play the drums great you we live in a duplex playgrounds everyday. I still don't know how that worked on. But so so I just think that I just think that you know there there are no rules were put on this earth to help people. And that is because life is hard and because life is hard we lose sight of that at times he can't seem beyond our own junk. But we're really here to help. Easy each other's burdens and so I just think like if you can just like trying to have your eyes open and just try to be kind to people and just tried to be tuned in to what. Goddard the universe everyone a look at it for me it's got. The path that is laid out for you. That's the way to do it you know for me it was really one of those things where it's like I was musician but really I learned I just would say all the time especially after a loss been like I just wanna help people. Nine can sound cliche or try to whatever but that that's. That is in all of us right and we again we lose sight of that so wins steps of faith when this came up. Rob and I are working together it was like pol. It was like any answer till like years of questions prayers and it's like OK. So. Undergone has really while it is this enormous opportunity. For steps of faith to raise a bunch of money get a lot of people in the community and around the country and otherwise know about us it's also a celebration you know. This is a this is the kind of party that Jason and I wanna throw you know we just want to have a good time when I make people laugh we one point drowns who have placed great music and her friends. And that's and have some great food and cocktails and those kinds of things and that's what it is so I'm just thankful to have it I just you know I just try to like. Stay in tune with what I'm supposed to be doing and sent to faith is not my job while it does employ me. At least for now it's my mission. I feel in life. To bill disorganization. To where it can exist run and thrive and grow without me. So I'm gonna do that. And then when it's time to go away. If that happens before I die I'll go away from you know in the meantime we're just trying to help as many people as we can and be one of those bright spots in the world. Well said. Home run.
