LETTER FROM MAUREEN

Dear Friends...

Polymyositis and Dermatomyositis are not familiar terms to most people, but they are to me. I know firsthand how frightening it can be to face one of these conditions, because my youngest niece, has Dermatomyositis.

A wonderful article about Maureen, entitled:
"Maureen McGovern MDA's Songbird"
appears in QUEST magazine published by the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

 

HELP IS ON THE WAY

"Help Is On The Way" first closed the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA) Annual Easter Bonnent Competition in 1995. Since then, it has been sung by many stars and has become its traditional closing number - promising all that we hope the event's fundraising will provide. At the 19th Annual Competition in 2005, Maureen McGovern's beautifully intimate performance of this stirring song stopped the show. We couldn't let Maureen's glorious version of David Friedman's HELP IS ON THE WAY go unrecorded. Now you can hear again and again what an audience of over 1,800 in the theatre that day so fondly remember.

    Best Friends Animal Society Is...

    Best Friends is working with you -- and with humane groups all across the country -- to bring about a time when there are No More Homeless Pets.

    The sanctuary, at the heart of Southern Utah's Golden Circle of national parks, is home, on any given day, to about 1,500 dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, and other animals.

    In our home state, Best Friends manages a model No More Homeless Pets campaign with shelters and humane groups statewide to ensure that every healthy dog or cat that's ever born can be guaranteed a loving home.

    And Best Friends reaches across the nation, helping humane groups, individual people, and entire communities to set up spay/neuter, shelter, foster, and adoption programs in their own neighborhoods, cities, and states.

    The mission of Best Friends is driven by the simple philosophy that kindness to animals helps build a better world for all of us. And the work of Best Friends is supported entirely through the donations of our members and supporters. Through the generous hearts and hands of people like you, we can ensure that animals who come into the care of Best Friends will never again be alone, hungry, sick, afraid, or in pain.
