BENEFITING: Friends in Deed, Inc.
Since 1991, Friends In Deed has helped transform many thousands of lives through our programs and services. We provide emotional and spiritual support for anyone with a diagnosis of HIV/AIDS, cancer or other life-threatening physical illnesses…their family, friends, and caregivers…and anyone dealing with grief and bereavement.
If you have seen RENT on Broadway or the movie RENT, some of the scenes are based on the work that this organization provides. "Will I lose my Dignity" was written after Jonathan Larson attended a meeting with a friend and I'm writing to you to ask for your support to an organization that is extremely important to me.
Many of us have known someone who has been diagnosed with cancer or another life-threatening illness, have lost someone close to us or has even cared for someone who has become ill. It is during these difficult times that we need to speak to someone to get some emotional support and Friends In Deed are the people who can help.
