MDA Says Thanks

Dear Editor;

You and your readers have given my family a reason to celebrate. Your generous contributions to the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon will speed worldwide research seeking treatments and cures for neuromuscular diseases, and help the Muscular Dystrophy Association provide unparalleled medical services through its national network clinics.

It’s wonderful to know that families like mine can count on so many caring people in greater Rockaway Beach. Your generosity enables MDA to maintain 230 clinics including those at the MDA clinics at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, at the Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine at NYU, at the Hospital for Joint Diseases and Medical Center, and at Mount Sinai Hospital and Medical Center, all in New York, as well as Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, Nassau County Medical Center in East Meadow, Long Island College Hospital, St. Charles Hospital and Rehabilitation Center in Port Jefferson, the Helen Hayes in West Haverstraw, at a White Plains Hospital and Medical Center in White Plains, sponsor hundreds of supports groups; and send thousands of youngsters to MDA summer camps each year.

Thank you for supporting the Labor Day Telethon on WWOR-TV, Channel 9, and participating in other fun MDA events in our area. Your generosity is why rapid progress is being made in the fight against muscle-wasting diseases.

JIMMY VALDES
