Another Standing Ovation for The King's Speech

MEMPHIS, Tenn., Jan. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Jane Fraser, president, The Stuttering Foundation (www.stutteringhelp.org), issued the following reaction to tonight's "SAG Awards":

"It is our privilege to give The King's Speech another standing ovation for bringing hope and understanding to those who stutter. With its much-deserved two SAG Awards, Best Male Actor in a Leading Role for Colin Firth and Best Cast of a Motion Picture, The King's Speech has the rare opportunity to teach the widest possible audience about the complexities of stuttering, and the availability of treatment and support."

About the Foundation

Malcolm Fraser felt the same dread of speaking in public that King George VI experienced in the 1940s. Inspired by the plight of "Bertie", Fraser, a successful businessman and stutterer, went on to establish and endow the 64-year-old nonprofit Foundation in 1947. The Foundation provides a toll-free helpline, 800-992-9392, and free online resources on its Website, www.stutteringhelp.org, including services, referrals and support to people who stutter and their families, as well as support for research into the causes of stuttering.
