Join Me! This year, Laura and I will be participating in the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run. We have committed to raising awareness and funds to accelerate finding a cure for multiple myeloma in honor of our beloved friend Denny Foley.

One year ago, we lost Denny here on Earth. In that time, he’s reminded us that he’s watching from above. Hence the name of our team ‘Rainbow Connection.’ Denny often uses rainbows to remind us of the bond we still have with him.

The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation played an instrumental role in the development of new treatments that benefited Denny in his battle with multiple myeloma, which is the second most common blood cancer and is incurable.

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. Founded in 1998 by Kathy Giusti, a multiple myeloma patient, and her twin sister Karen Andrews as a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization, the MMRF is a world-recognized leader in cancer research.

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 our participation in the MMRF Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run. Your donation will mean so much to us, the Foleys, and thousands of patients and their families!
With love and gratitude,
Trish
