Dear Mr. Bieber:
Thank you for your gift to the University of Virginia School of Medicine. As you requested, your contribution will support the myotonic muscular dystrophy research of Dr. Mani Mahadevan. On behalf of the School of Medicine and the patients who will ultimately benefit from your generosity, I offer my sincere gratitude.
Private support is an invaluable source of funding for medical research. Your gift will provide Dr. Mahadevan the latitude necessary for immediate response to new modes of thought and new technologies. For that reason, your contribution may expedite his research and bring new medical miracles to the world with greater speed.
Again, thank you for your support of biomedical research excellence at the University of Virginia.
Arthur Garson, Jr., M.D., M.P.H.
