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

This year, my wife, Kristie, and I are excited to be participating in the MMRF Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run! We 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. This is a very personal battle for us because Kristie was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in July 2016 at the age of 44. Since then, she has been undergoing treatment at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston, MA. In January 2017, she had an autologous stem cell transplant and is currently in remission with continued maintenance treatments to keep the disease under control.

Your generosity truly makes a difference, as funds raised at this event in the past have helped to:

Create the largest genomic data set in any cancer
Advance the MMRF Precision Medicine Model
Nearly tripled patient survival
Deliver ten new treatments in a decade
Launch over 70 new clinical trials

Now is the time for us to continue these life-changing initiatives while developing new breakthroughs in myeloma research!

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. 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. To learn more, visit themmrf.org.

Please support our 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! The MMRF is bringing treatments to trial 60 percent faster than the industry standard and tripling life expectancy. THIS IS SCIENCE, NOT FICTION. The MMRF needs your support. History is being made, so we invite you to join us.

Thank You!
