Please join me & my team for the MMRF Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run on Sunday, September 22 at beautiful Lake Phalen in Saint Paul! You can walk, run, roll, whatever works for you!
I have been involved with the MMRF since our committee of 5 women got together and made it a quest to organize the first Twin Cities race back in 2005. Since then we have raised millions of dollars to fund vital research and the MMRF has accelerated the development of next-generation multiple myeloma treatments to extend the lives of patients and lead to a cure.
As most of you know, I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 1998 and had a stem cell transplant in 1999. I continue to get yearly check-ups and, luckily, I continue to be cancer free! However, we know that myeloma is still incurable and that people are still dying of this disease. I continue to support the MMRF and their research efforts, knowing that approving effective drug therapies will get us closer to a cure!
Hope you will decide to walk with me & my team on Sunday, September 22!
