Group Facebbok account, someone from Texas contacted us and
asked if we could help her check on a loved one located here

INCIDENT: Through the MPG blog, someone had averted
a potential scam. Jason was about to sign up for a monthly
subscription to the Family Savings Club when he became suspicious

letter from one of our recipients of our work. This is what
the Monrovia Providers Group is all about.

have acute arthritis in my neck and back and a good

her. Now with a new bed, I will rest better and feel
Again, thank you for helping us and making a difference
in our lives.
