Join Me! The MMRF is removing obstacles faster and extending lives. But we need your help.

This year, I will be participating in the MMRF Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run. I have committed to raising awareness and funds to accelerate finding a cure for multiple myeloma, which is the second most common blood cancer and is incurable. Your generosity truly makes a difference, as funds raised at this event in the past have helped to:

Nearly tripled patient survival
Deliver ten new treatments in a decade
Launched over 80 new clinical trials

I was diagnosed with smoldering (asymptomatic) myeloma in December of 2014. I joined a two year clinical trial at Dana Farber Cancer Institute to stop or slow down the growth of myeloma cells in January of 2015. The MMRF has been instrumental in offering these clinical trials, as well as developing new treatments. We walk/run to raise money for this very important organization that continues to help with research and treatments for many with this incurable disease.

After the trial, I was still considered "smoldering," however I remained high risk and the myeloma cells began to creep up again. My doctors at DFCI recommended a stem cell transplant in which I did in August of 2017. It was a rough ordeal going through the transplant; I lost my hair (for the second time) and was out of work for three months. Since then, I still have maintenance treatment for disease control in which I still need to have treatment at DFCI. I'm now back at work and feeling better overall.My myeloma numbers continue to be stable with this maintenance/ disease control treatment.

Please support my participation in the MMRF Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run. Your donation will have a meaningful impact on the lives of thousands of patients and their families!

Thank You!
