This year, I will be participating with my family and friends in the MMRF Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run fotr the 3rd time in support of my brother and all those diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma.

This year will be different, as my family has recently grieved the loss of both our Father and Mother. I made a promise to my Mother before she passed that I would continue to support the cause in her memory. At last years walk, my mother, a breast cancer survivor, and recently diagnosed with gastric cancer, with a grim prognosis, walked all 5k pushing the wheelchair her Doctors suggested we bring for her to ride in.

So many of us have loved ones that are battling cancer, or have succumbed to the dreaded disease in one form or another. We walk with a hope that someday there will be a cure for not only Multiple Myeloma, but all forms of cancer.

I 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

The mission of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) is to find a cure for multiple myeloma by relentlessly pursuing innovation that accelerates the development of next-generation treatments to extend the lives of patients. The MMRF is a world-recognized leader in cancer research. Together with its partners, the MMRF has created the only end-to-end solution in precision medicine and the single largest genomic dataset in all cancers. The MMRF continues to disrupt the industry today, as a pioneer and leader at the helm of new research efforts. Since its inception, the organization has raised over $400 million and directs nearly 90% of the total funds to research and related programs. The MMRF is in the top 1% of all charities, having earned Charity Navigator’s 4-star rating for 16 years. To learn more, visit themmrf.org.

Please support my participation in the MMRF Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run.

If you can make it, we would all love to have you join our team and walk.
Your donation, no matter how great or small, will have a meaningful impact on the lives of thousands of patients and their families!

Thank You!
