  Director's Letter
February is a short month, and my letter this month will be correspondingly short.  Sometimes brevity is the best option (at least that is what my daughters tell me, whenever I open my mouth).

I do not need to brag about all that we (including you) have accomplished recently . . . all you have to do is take a look at our Annual Report, now posted online. If you recently donated or became a member, then you will be receiving a print copy of the Annual Report in the mail shortly.

We will continue to post information about relevant news and upcoming events on our website, Facebook, and Twitter. If you know of more, let us now so that we can share it.

We will continue to publish reviews of recent research so that you can quickly and easily keep up to date on the latest news in biotherapy.  If you wish to suggest or review some other work, please let us know of your interest.

We will continue to support patients, therapists, and researchers. Whether you need our help or just want to join the crusade to advance healthcare, all you have to do is give us a call , drop us a line, or send us an email

And if you are just here for the pearls of wisdom at the bottom of every newsletter . . . well, then join us at the bottom, which is where most people start before making it successfully to the top.

With best wishes, always,
R Sherman (signature)

Donated Art by Artist Kevin Raye Larson
Dear Friends of the BTER Foundation,

Several years ago, two paintings by Kevin Raye Larson were donated to the BTER Foundation in the hopes that the sale of these paintings would fund biotherapy research. From Larson's highly acclaimed "Saint Series," these two 4 ft x 4 ft acrylic airbrush paintings were then priced at $10,000 each. If you or someone you know may be interested in purchasing these beautiful paintings, please contact us at Otherwise, they will go to auction in the coming months.
