A Letter From Barbra.

Barbra Streisand.
March 5, 2010

Dear Friend,

As we go about our everyday lives, it’s easy to take for granted the strong, steady beating
of our hearts. But, sadly, the odds are that many of us will someday face serious cardiac
problems. The fact is heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death for both men
and women in the United States.

Women tend to worry more about breast cancer because it’s always in the news. But heart
disease takes the lives of 500,000 mothers, daughters, sisters and friends every year—more
than all cancers combined.

In fact, while the mortality rate for men with coronary artery disease has been declining for the
past 30 years, the number of women who die from it is rising. This is due, in part, to the fact
that diagnostic and treatment methods have been geared towards men.

Women have paid a huge price for the medical and scientific community not knowing about
the important gender differences in heart disease. What gives me hope is knowing that the
Cedars-Sinai Women’s Heart Center is here for us.

Through gender-specific heart research, the development of new diagnostic tools,
breakthrough clinical trials using stem cells to enable the heart to heal itself, and specialized
care for women, the Women’s Heart Center is improving the detection and treatment of
women’s heart disease. When you consider that 40 percent of women don’t survive their first
heart attack, you can see why I’m excited about this work!

I’m writing to you today because I deeply believe that women’s heart disease is an epidemic
worthy of our philanthropic support. If you share this belief, I hope you will join me in
supporting Cedars-Sinai Women’s Heart Center by sending a donation today.
Even a small gift will help save women’s hearts and lives.

Thank you, in advance, for your kind generosity. Working together, we can make a real

Warm regards,

Barbra Streisand

P.S. I have played many roles over the years, but one that makes me particularly proud is the
role I play as a supporter of the Cedars-Sinai Women’s Heart Center. It is an honor to have the
opportunity to ask for your support of this wonderful program.
